    Camera Install

    "We recently moved into a home wired with Ethernet cables and needed help getting everything working as it should. There wasnâ t proper labeling in place from original install and wall jacks werenâ t functional so we decided to give Fish Cat a call based on a referral. We work from home and on the computer all day so having everything hard wired is of major benefit. Fish Cat was able to fix the infrastructure issues with cabling and wall jacks and went above and beyond to make sure our specific workstations were up and running cleanly with new cable to wall. We had a great experience and found Fish Cat to be easy to work with."

Oakley Electric sent a crew out with lead Troy Fisher, and they immediately went to work tracing down all affected electrical systems and outlets, installed a new surge protected electric box and assisted her with contacting her insurance company. They were all very attentive to detail and courteous. They also assisted in getting a furnace expert on site to replace her burned out furnace.

    "We had to replace our water main. Before it could be inspected we had to address an electrical grounding issue. It was a simple issue but preplexed us. Brandon Neustel called me shortly after receiving an alert from Angi. He assured me that he could take care of the issue and do it on my timeline. He was knowledgeable and explained what he would have to do clearly and went about doing so efficiently. We would most certainly reccomend him and will call him again should we need an electrician. Pricing was very resonable."

    "I wanted to have a new 200amp panel installed to replace my existing 100amp panel. After calling several different electricians and getting the run around, I finally found Lon at Hood River Electrical. Lon, the owner, came out within a week to make a site visit. Together we reviewed my options and then gave a quote that I felt was fair. Lon put me at ease and I felt comfortable that the work would be done quickly and by the book. When PacificPower turned off the power and the meter box was removed, Lon discovered that it would need to be replaced. Knowing the tight timeline and my expectations, Lon went out of his way to get a new box and install it so that the power was on when I got home. Communication with contractors can always be difficult but Lon gave me consistent updates that gave me piece of mind while the work was being done. I highly recommend Hood River Electrical to anybody in the Portland area looking for an electrician. I plan on using Hood River Electrical in the future!"

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.

I rent a space here and excessive torubleshooting for my mmwork computer is leading me to believe there is a power issue with the home especially given the corcuts arent hard to pop. A fan can be running in the bathroom too long and it pops a breaker. Primarily i see lights flicker time to time with no bad rainy or windy or snowy weather. Last inspection was 4 years ago. Home supposedly had new wiring done and the owner seemed reluctant to help me. The sqft is 1588
