    "We had such a great experience with Solar Repair! Before starting our project we spoke and met with several other providers and did a lot of research on our own. From beginning to end the entire team at Solar Repair treated us with the utmost care and respect. Although they are still a fairly new company the amount of knowledge and information they gave us was times 10 compared to the others who have been around a lot longer. The information resulted in major savings and much better rebates and credits. Additionally, we ended up with better quality Panasonic Solar Panels and a great Enphase Battery Storage System. Again, the entire team was GREAT! Always taking our calls or calling us back immediately. Believe, me we called a ton and had a ton of questions!!! Thank you Garrett, Markie, Luis, and Steven you really made us feel like family!"

    "Beltran Electric went above and beyond for our bedroom/closet home renovation project. Angel listened to what we wanted and he gave valuable insight and recommendations that we didnâ t realize we wanted. He provided a free quote and was honest with his pricing. He added countless can lighting units in our newly built walk-in closet, moved/installed numerous outlets and light switches as well as moving and rerouting an irrigation stystem panel to the exterior of our home. The project continued to grow as we kept adding items to the list. Angel was more than flexible with such additional work as well as working with our busy work schedules to ensure the job was perform without delay. The cherry on top was how he left the job so clean. He vacuumed and made sure the space was left spotless! This experience was a breeze. Angel was always respectful, professional and most of all knowledgeable. I would recommend Beltran Electric without hesitation. We will be calling him back in the near future as our home renovations continue. Thank you Angel!"

Don't let the youthful appearance fool you, they are professional, caring, and addressed all my concerns from start to finish.

    "Ignacio and his son including his nephew came in to install 2 separate circuit breakers, one for my furnace and one for the washer and dryer. I have had issues with my recessed lights in the kitchen flickering when other appliances were being used including the furnace. I was worried that I might be overloading the system causing a possible fire hazard. I called for a quote from Ignacio and he came in the next day and diagnosed the problem right away. He was very accommodating and responsive to all my concerns and even told him that I can’t do weekdays and so he said he will make an exception and did the work on a Saturday. They did an awesome job and made sure everything are cleaned up before they left. His son even fixed a hole close to my outdoor faucet with the foam sealant when I requested him to do it for me. Others would have said, that’s not part of my job. I already scheduled them for another work that I need inside my garage. They will be my go to electric company from now on."

    "I would say this is the BEST SERVICE YOU CAN FIND for HVAC. I had an intermittently functioning heat system where we almost replaced the $300 Next thermostat and ran a 40 foot power wire through the walls, which would have cost quite a bit. Instead, a very capable man did the right testing and found we only needed a capacitor and he had one on his truck. He then spent another hour removing the dirty fan and cleaning the whole system with Shopvac and garden hose. We'd been breathing all this dusty air and did not know it. They came the day we called and everything was handled expertly after two weeks of problems with heat and incorrect solutions suggested. Highly recommended and I will save their number!"

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.
