    "As soon as I contacted Home Advisor, Steve immediately called me, and then he was at my front door to diagnose and replace my faulty disposal switch just a few minutes later. Happy to see that he's a Master Electrician too. He did such a great job that I had him go ahead and replace 2 garage overhead light fixtures and bulbs. So polite, informative, and fair in pricing that I'd HIGHLY recommend him, and would definitely call 360 SMARTPRO in the future."

    "I am very happy with the services that Thrifty Electric provided! They quoted a very affordable price over the phone and stuck to the price after the work was completed. The work was also completed in a timely fashion. They installed recessed lighting and pendant lights in my kitchen, living room, and dining room area and it looks great! They also took care of other odds and ends that needed to be done without hesitation! The DeJesus brothers are really nice guys and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of an electrician! I will also continue to use them in the future!! Thank you Thrifty Electric!!!"

    "Leonard went above and beyond the typical electrical service. He thoughtfully looked at the project and helped us save money while getting more than we could have asked for. He installed lighting on our patio in addition to adding an outlet there and in our laundry room had to wire an outlet from attic to closet so that I could hang a dyson vacuum that needed a charging station. I thought it couldn't be done but he showed me that it was possible. I'm so thankful."

    Prompt service, Panel upgrades, Years of experience

    "We contacted All City Electrical because we needed to have a circuit breaker box replaced in a relative's house. They gave us an up front estimate of $750, which was more than $300 LESS than other estimates. Then, when we hired them, the electrician said he could replace the box, or he could get us the parts we needed to fix it and replace all the breakers for considerably less money. We agreed to that, and the final cost was only $300. That was a huge savings. I did not work with the people directly, but my wife did. She had nothing but the highest paise for their professionalism. I don't really feel that I can evlauate the quality of the work since I'm not an electrician myself, but it seemed excellent from what I know."

How much do electricians typically cost?

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: I have two wall switches without dimmers that need replacing that are on a relay together (one on one end of the hall, and the other at the opposite end of the hall, that both control (on / off) two ceiling lights hanging in a small hallway in my home as mentioned above. 1950's built home so second switch does not have a ground. I want to remove this old switch and cap off it's wires and cover with face plate, and for the grounded first switch to replace with a working switch that is the same type and size but replace it due to the spring that is worn out in the first switch and it control the light solely, covering the second wall switch with a blank face plate as mentioned above.

    Comment: I have a 1950s build home and have a wall switch that eventually is worn out and is no longer functional. In addition it is connected to a hallway light with another switch down the hall also on and off switch only but that is a non-grounded receptacle as was common in homes in 1950s. I’m simply looking for replacing the worn out wall switch and removing the second wall switch down the hall, covering the wires appropriately and just putting a face plate closed cover on top. 1 incident as the face plates have been removed and I was going to move forward with the work myself given it’s not too complex but even after having checked the wiring with a device to tell me if it was hot or not at some point the breaker had gotten switched back on, and just bumping the unit, not causing any personal harm, but created visible sparks from the outlet which subsequently had no smoke smell or fire or other incinerate looking Surroundings. Appropriately that caused the breaker for that particular receptacle to switch for which I reset but have not yet turned back on for concern that after having done too much research, hopefully, avoiding too many opinions.. ultimately it should not be a complicated job for an individual licensed and insured to evaluate and replace the wall switch for the hallway lights and removing the old light from the second receptacle down the hall also controlling on off of that light and covering it with a sealed wall plate which I’ve already purchased the switches and wall plates. I’m sure it is something easy that I can do myself and at this point given the age of the home do not want to reset the breaker for fear of overload to that wall receptacle. Look forward to hear from you at your convenience.. to preface, I have the replacement switch and the appropriate closed wall cover for the second switch. Therefore, no additional to my knowledge purchases need to be made in the parts department for this work. finally an idea, bottom line costs and rates.
