    "Dealt with Jeff Fischer. He was on time, extremely professional and knew what he was doing. Came to the house to see what we needed and sent us an estimate of costs the same day. Had to order some parts from back east, but was there to do the job the minute the parts were in. He hooked our new generator up to the electric breakers and ran lines to the other side of the house. He was in and out in 3 1/2 hours and did a great job. I would highly recomment him and already have to some friends."

    "Quick callback, very good price, came out the very next morning, and did great, professional work repairing the ceiling box and then mounting and installing my new lighting fixtures. Asked them to hang a 2nd chandelier I was going to do myself while they were here, and they gladly accommodated. Got the entire job done for the same price as other companies quoted for just the one fixture. Highly recommended!"

    "I hired Austin to install an EV charger in my garage. Austin was very attentive, coming out on my schedule to do a quick walkthrough of the garage and give me an estimate. I found his estimate to be very fair, and we scheduled a time this last weekend to have it installed. Austin gathered all information he needed and arrived on time to perform the job. Overall it took about 4.5 hours for him to run the conduit for the charger to the other side of the garage, and install the charger. The charger worked right off the bat, and the inspector just stopped by and said it was good work. Overall, I would recommend Austin to anyone looking to do electrical work in their home, and I will absolutely use him again."

    "I was really in a bind, as my original Electrician cancelled on me at the last second. I already had installers coming out the next morning so I needed this electrical work to be done as planned. I called up Curley on a Friday at 4:30 and not only did they say â sure, no problemâ they were at my house within 10 minutes and done 15 minutes after that. Unbelievable customer service and professional approach. I would not hesitate to hire them again for any electrical needs I may have. Really helped me out and I could have been more thankful to their Team."

He installed extra panels on each side of our exterior for both hot tub and generator, installed dozens of outlets and light switches, 3 way switches, and pendant lights, led lighting under counters, sconces on the deck and large led light panels in the garage. He advised on kitchen island outlet locations and floor outlets for lamps in the living room. Came out multiple times as needed for add on requests. He also installed our Tesla Charging Station in our garage. He is trustworthy and does an excellent job."

    "Before deciding to go with someone a little cheaper I recommend considering the quality of service you would receive by paying a little more. My water heater began leaking one evening so I put it into home advisor. The next morning Hart s called me about getting a quote done and they came to do an estimate that day. They wouldn t give me a price over the phone and some people may not like that, but because of this they were able to give me a 100% accurate quote with no surprises. I could have had the water heater installed the same day but I had other quotes coming in that I wanted to consider. That night I told them I would like to give them my business and scheduled an appointment after putting half down. This was a little strange to me, but I had the money so it didn t bother me. The next day Chris Phillips came out to install the water heater and I could not be happier with his work. He is an absolute professional with a lot of experience under his belt. He kept me informed of everything he was doing and gave me some insight as to why as well. He helped me understand my system better and even pointed out things that he thought may need attention soon. At the end of it all I had a brand new water heater with almost no time without hot water. He also installed a pressure reducing valve and a new hose bib. The quality of his work is exceptional and looks very neat and clean in my garage. Overall I don t think I could have asked for a better experience with an otherwise stressful situation. I will absolutely be calling them back for any of my plumbing needs and I will be recommending them to everyone I know. I am very thankful that I went with them even though they were a little more expensive than the other companies who contacted me."

    "We have recently started using Harts for all of our plumbing needs and have been very pleased with the work and professionalism! The guys are all extremely courteous, communicative, and respectful and we trust them to be in our home. Matthew came out to address a smell coming from our sump pump and identified that the lid needed to be replaced. Easy fix. While he was there he checked the pump to ensure it was operating properly and assured me that everything else looked good. He said he would promptly fix the issue and gave me his card in the event I had any further questions. We signed up for their annual maintenance plan and we love being able to call them for any concerns we have, at no charge, and with priority scheduling! We have cancelled our home service warranty now that we have the Harts plan, as they cover plumbing, electrical, and will soon have HVAC services. Yes, I know that their prices might be a tad higher than others (although our jobs have been in line with other quotes) but it pays for their extensive training, warranty, knowledge, and great and responsive customer service. You get what you pay for and we are at the point in our life where we are ready to pay for quality and peace of mind."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Seattle, Washington Average
    $399
  • Typical Range
    $203 - $587
  • Low End - High End
    $100 - $1,200

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.
