    "Rico did an excellent job in installing two ceiling fans and two pendant lights as well as upgrade lighting in the kitchen and hallway. Four of the rooms did not have ceiling lighting previously. He also repaired outlets for us. We were impressed by the quality of work and the reasonable price. He is also a nice guy. We will be calling him again."

    "Rudy is a very courteous, personable & knowledgeable professional. He has been taking care of all our plumbing issues for the last two years. We are very happy to have found him. Rudy is always very prompt and most helpful in explaining the different options for any kind of repairs. He always did a great job and came up with the most practical solutions for the issues we had. He has helped us with installation of garbage disposal, repair plumbing issues and replace/flush water heating system so far and has been nothing short of awesome. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable and reasonably priced professional for any plumbing related services."

    "Napoleon is very professional and always on time! He installed Tesla wall charger perfectly and at a very reasonable price. We also hired him to install the outdoor light fixtures as well (at a reasonable price). He accidentally messed up the existing breaker for 14-50NEMA EV charger while installing the EV wall charger which he took accountability for and fixed it. That shows he is an honest man! We have hired him 3 times already and has referred to couple of my friends as well! Will definitely hire him again for any future electrical work."

    "Replaced my 4 ceiling fans , one ceiling fan was defective after it was installed, Colton had to uninstall ceiling fan. The ceiling fan was returned to Home Depot and the next day was installed, the owner Paul did not charge me an additional fee for the service, as others would charge me an additional fee, he worked with his customers, which reflects great customer service. Thank you"

Total charge was $175 and I added a $25 tip. Knowledgeable with years of experience at some bigger plumbing services. Nice guy, explained things as he worked.

    "Mike and his team did an exceptional job. The work itself was an overhaul of an outdated General Pacific Panel and relocation of an out of code closet panel to the outside, mast/riser, etc. This also requires arc faults, GFIs, ground rods, etc. They explained each step, walked me through the ins and outs of where the wiring was going, where the ground rods were getting placed, what types of breakers were needed for code, and came in below budget. Hard to find folks that shoot you straight, take care of all the additional questions you have, and allow you to make small changes to statement of work all under budget (I.e. installed an additional outlet and hardwired a ring doorbell through masonry). Would recommend you check them out, especially if you need an old General Pacific panel replaced or 50s/60s electrical brought up to code."

    "We recently bought an old house with many issues that were identified in the inspection report, including old knob and tube wiring. Aaron spent a lot of time in an initial visit going through and diagnosing each issue and then gave us several reasonable alternatives to spending tens of thousands of dollars. Since then, we've had him back multiple times to fix old fixtures and outlets, install new fixtures and pendants, and he and his team also constructed a new interior wall for us with new switches, outlets, and sconces. All of the work has been very professional. We highly recommend him."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Plano, Texas Average
    $320
  • Typical Range
    $150 - $499
  • Low End - High End
    $90 - $905

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.
