She wasn't sure if she could get the electrician out the same day, but called back and said he would come the next evening. Nice surprise he was able to come the same day. Came that evening and fixed our problem right away. He was very courteous and knowledgeable. We will definitely call him with any other electrical needs we might have."

    "Rick is a wonderful handyman. I first found him while he worked on a neighborâ s home. The neighbor told me how good he is. He put new screens on our backporch, replaced siding and painted our backyard barn, and installed heat tape on a long run of water pipe running through our unheated attic. All jobs were wonderfully completed. He repaired some plumbing joints that had not been properly done by a plumber formerly. He communicates well, is prompt in coming to our home. His pricing is very affordable considering the high quality of his work. I recommend him very highly and plan to employ him the next time I have a home project."

He s been in the business for over 30 years and taught me some cool tricks to keep my windows feeling new. I m glad to know I have a handyman and won t hesitate again to call if I need him."

    "Great experience. The professionals that showed up were on time, neat, courteous and provided us outstanding service. We were very impressed with the quality of work and the short time it took to get the ceiling fan installed. They really know their business, so much so we had additional work done with our closet lights. We're glad we did because they fixed it in short order and it looks great and bright. Additionally, before they stepped foot in our home, they introduced themselves, put on their shoe covers, and ensured the work area was covered and cleaned up afterwards. Highly recommend. Thank you."

    "The person who came, Evan Emrich, was a well-trained electrician. He started work immediately, listened to my description of the problem and the "solution" the prior worker had produced. Evan found a number of unusual/incorrect things that had been done, or left, by the prior repairman. He corrected these and completely resolved the problem. Evan was efficient, knowledgeable, industrious and polite. It was nice to have a professional assigned to the job. One question that arose, when Evan presented a bill for over $300, was whether this was a "no cost" correction or was it to be paid. My information from Angi was this was a remedial action at no additional cost. That was not Evan's understanding for Mr. Electric. We resolved this by my signing my acknowledgement that the work was done successfully and Mr. Electric woold work this out with Angi."

    "Yes, I would highly recommend Joe Schmo Electrical Services. The electrician (James) showed up on time and was very courteous. He installed electrical wiring for three bedroom ceiling lights (one with a ceiling fan) along with three dimmer switches. James removed and replaced a hall light to a newer fixture. He also moved my battery operated ceiling fire alarms away from the center of the ceiling at no additional charge in order to install my light fixtures. He was very tidy too. I plan to use Joe Schmo Electrical Services next year to install new kitchen fixtures. 12/11/14 Bonnie"

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Indianapolis, Indiana Average
    $291
  • Typical Range
    $134 - $459
  • Low End - High End
    $75 - $1,000

Frequently asked questions

  • An electrician’s cost per hour comes in between $50 and $100. It’ll vary depending on your location and the type or professional you hire. Areas with a higher cost of living can expect to pay on the higher end of that scale. Licensing level may also increase the price.
  • Usually you’ll pay a higher rate for the first hour. This covers their travel and time expense. Emergency or after-hours rates are usually higher too – expect to pay an emergency fee of up to $300 plus a higher hourly rate.

Electricians do a fair amount of larger remodeling and new construction projects but also common residential projects including:

For cost information related to the above tasks, visit our Electrical Cost Guide.

  1. Do you have a license to perform electrical work in this state?
    All states require an electrical license or work performed under a Master Electrician. You should also ask how many on the job hours of experience they have.
  2. Do you have insurance?
    Never use one who isn’t insured. You can ask to see proof of insurance.
  3. Do you have prior work references?
    You might skip this for small jobs like installing a light or outlet. For larger projects, always get references.
  4. What are your rates?
    Always ask up front. Getting a detailed quote up front is the best way to go.
  5. Who is going to do the actual work?
    Often, a Master Electrician will come out to diagnose and bid on projects, but they have their apprentice and journeyman electricians do the work. This isn’t a terrible thing, in fact it’s common practice. The Master’s license is on the line with any work he supervises.
  6. Is your work warrantied or guaranteed?
    Any reputable company or contractor warranties their work, usually for at least a year.
  7. Are you usually on time?
    Overbooking is a frequent problem with electrical work. Often, a service call goes long, and they end up showing up at your home late. This common complaint is easily remedied with an up-front and honest discussion. If they can’t be on time, make sure they’ll call.

1. Don’t Be Misled by an Electrician’s Hourly Rates

A truly skilled, well-equipped professional with a truck full of parts that charges $100 an hour can be a much wiser choice than an inexperienced hack, working with inadequate tools and no parts, but charging much less. Often, more experienced professionals get the job done quickly with warrantied work.

2. Compare Travel Charges

Rates reflect travel times. Travel charges can have a big impact on your costs and are in some ways easier to compare than hourly rates. Many electricians spend a third or more of their time navigating traffic on their way to a jobsite. Every contractor must find a way to pay for the expense of driving each day.

3. Bundle Repair Jobs Together

When you feel it’s time to call a pro, review your list and then conduct a mini-inspection of your home. Look for faulty switches and dysfunctional or crowded outlets. When the electrician comes, you’ll save money and time by getting everything taken care of at once.

4. How to Prepare & What to Know Before the Electrician Arrives
  • Be as thorough and detailed in describing your needs to your contractor. The more they know, the quicker the job will go.
  • Before they arrive, prepare a precise list of items you want serviced. Electricians have budgeted their time for a service call. They don’t have time for additional requests once they are on site.
  • Make sure the electrical panel box is accessible. You’ll pay for the time it takes to access it.
  • Clear away fragile items, knickknacks and furniture from areas where you expect the them to work.
  • If you have questions about the project, ask them before they start. Most are happy to run you through the problem and the process of fixing it.
  • Ask about potential issues after the work is complete. During a service call a professional will spot any potential hazards.
  • You’ll lose power to parts of your home while they work. Be prepared to pause anything you’re doing during the service call.
  • In most cases you’ll have the option to either pay at the time of service or have a bill sent to you. You’ll be able to pay with cash, credit and sometimes check.
5. Install Money-Saving Electrical Fixtures
  • By switching from ordinary incandescent light fixtures or bulbs to fluorescent or LED ones, you can substantially reduce energy consumption in your home.
  • Motion detector switches can help you save money on outdoor lighting while at the same time providing very cost-effective security to your home.
  • Creative landscape lighting and indoor accent lighting can make your home more appealing to you, your guests and potential buyers in the future.
