    Rick is AWESOME. Heâ s courteous, very responsive, prompt, extremely smart and skilled and meticulous. He replaced a kitchen disposal that was on the kitchen island, and he did it perfectly. He also spent a lot of time researching, diagnosing and repairing my five star gas range and oven! It took a lot of time outside of just doing the work and he did it. These ranges are extremely difficult to work on. He did every bit of the legwork and spent hours outside of the actual repair talking with the company and familiarizing himself with the appliance. The actual repair took a very long time, very tedious and complicated. I was so impressed with him. I felt completely comfortable having him in my home and would have even left him here alone if necessary. He has an engineering background, and he wants to get it exactly correct. I would trust him with any job around the house that I have. I feel very blessed to have found him. I trust him completely, and his prices were very reasonable and competitive. Truly canâ t say enough about Rick. Heâ s very honest and forthcoming as well. Would absolutely recommend him, and if heâ s not familiar with the appliance or specific job, I can assure you he will research it and get it exactly correct!

    Scott came to our home to evaluate our need for a whole house generator. Scott is always extremely knowledgeable and an expert in so many fields. He explained an excellent plan for placing the generator in our home which is balanced on the side of a mountain. He informed us about expected costs..not wanting us to have any unexpected expenses. Scott has always been a wonderful professional to work with. We are always glad when One Service pros send him out on any of our electrical projects.

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.

    Comment: This is pretty basic. I heard a pop in my bathroom and no longer have power in there. I flipped all the switches in my circuit box and it didn't fix it, so I think a fuse is blown. I need someone to help me restore power to my bathroom. I also have a few lose wires in my basement that I need checked to confirm they're not live. If they're not, I'd like them removed.
