    "Roland and Bianca are a great team. Bianca was easy to work with on the phone in getting everything set up and providing the estimate. Roland installed an Air King fan and 4 light fixtures in our garage and 2 in our attic. He also installed an extra switch to control the light fixtures separately and added an extra outlet. With Bianca assisting Roland, the work was done quickly and efficiently. There were a few challenges because our house is wired a bit strangely, but they rolled with the punches and got it done. We obtained estimates from 3 companies, and they were all very close in price, but chose to hire Jordan Electric Services because of the fact that they are a small family owned business. We have other electrical projects in the future and will be calling on them again. Very pleased."

    "Eric was able to schedule my work on the same day. I found him and his crew to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and courteous. After learning I could not replace an amber bulb with a clear one, he offered to come with me to buy a new exterior fixture so that I would purchase exactly what I wanted. I'm glad he came with me because, as usual, the 'orange' depot had no one available if I had needed assistance. I will certainly use him again and recommend him to anyone who asks if I know a capable and reasonable electrician., And his mama raised him well- - -he and his crew cleaned up and left no debris or material..a BIG PLUS!!!"

    "It has been a pleasure getting to know Stetson and the team from Dunn Honest Electric. We initially engaged Stetson via Yelp when we put out a request for a Forklift Charger installation. We met with multiple vendors, but Stetson's professionalism stood out - it wasn't just "another job" to him. He took the time to explain our options and we received an estimate the following day! The charger install went great. We then realized the need for further electrical services when we installed our conveyor system. Stetson came back out to our warehouse and discussed all avenues of accomplishing the task. Again, our estimate was given shortly after his visit. The quote was approved and Stetson and the team were on-site the following week. Two days later we had an amazingly designed power distribution solution that didn't break the bank. We'll definitely be calling Dunn Honest Electric for our future business electrical needs."

    "The electrician was a pleasure to work with. He promptly answered our request to run wiring and install exterior garage lights, and he also arranged to do the installation in a timely manner. Althought the time it took for the installation was longer than his estimate, he kept the agreement. The estimate was very reasonable. He did a follow-up call to be sure we were satisified with his work. The lights needed some adjustment (to respond to nighttime motion), and he offered to come back, but I was able to do the adjustment myself. I would definitely recommend him."

    "Ryan ran 220 for my new hot tub, installed a light fixture outside my back patio door and brought my main panel up to code. His work is super clean and his knowledge as a master electrician goes beyond what I even expected. Best of all he showed me how to save money by instructing me how to fix some lighting issues myself instead of paying him or another electrician to do it. That is what I respected the most. Ryan was amazing! And guess who I will be calling when we start the electrical part of the pool cabana structure out back of my house this spring? I ll give you one guess......"

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • San Antonio, Texas Average
    $313
  • Typical Range
    $151 - $506
  • Low End - High End
    $75 - $975

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.
