    Professional Electrician

    "Carl negotiated the time for the work to start and he and his helper arrived exactly as promised. On one part of the scheduled work, Carl's helper uncovered a bad connection in the outdoor AC wiring that was both a fire hazard and a waste of electricity. That was repaired and the job completed in less time than it would have taken for me to do it myself. Like about a day less (and I have done plenty of electrical work) ."

He was friendly, cleaned up after the install & charged a fair price. I felt that I called the right person & will next time I am in need of electrical services. I highly recommend their services!"

    "Five stars from start to finish. Found Bay Area Electric on Home Advisor. James called ME the next day before I could call him. He asked me for more details about the job and then sent me a very reasonable proposal. I told him I'd like to proceed and he let me know the date for install - 4 weeks out. (Trades are so busy right now!) Danny and Tua showed up 10 minutes early and were friendly and professional. The light fixture over the sink could not accommodate the can light that I wanted due to a beam, but Danny offered up an alternate fixture that looks great. He checked in with us on spacing for the remainder of the lights as well as the height for the chandelier. They worked well together and I felt like we were partners in the project with them - letting them know our preferences and then they executed beautifully. Sooo pleased! I highly recommend them and will use them again!"

    "I watched him re-wire my girlfriend's house. He put in a lot of extra facets. He put in lighting as well. And that's what intrigued me to have him work at my house. The work he did for her was cost-effective and a professional installation. As to my house (it was brand new) it didn't have the lighting. The new lighting for the living room was installed by Aaron, and I'm quite happy with it."

    "I needed to have a charging station installed in my garage after purchasing an EV Bolt. I didn't know of any electricians and so I tired Home Advisor. I filled out a request on Sunday and Monday morning Tony Munguia called to say he could come at 1 PM to give me an estimate. He was promptly at my front door at 1 PM and he was very thorough in his estimate. He used a calculator on his phone to see if the correct wire size would fit in my existing conduit that went from our house to the detached garage. He was very personable and I connected with him while he explained his estimate. I accepted it and he and crew came promptly at 8 AM and excellently install the craving station in my garage. They cleaned up after themselves and completed the jon by 4:30 PM. I now k now of an excellent electrical contractor in Marin should I need one in the future. I would highly recommend their services."

He promptly came by and gave me a fair quote, he even advised on me on the charger. Sean communicated very well and did the installation within days of me getting my charger. His work was excellent and I have no hesitation in recommending him highly. Do yourself a favor and use this professional electrician for all your electrical needs."

He had a technician here in a few days, he fixed the problem as well as giving us useful feedback on our system. Our streaming and dvd system work after not having it for almost 3 months! Ramiro also called afterwards to make sure everything was still working. What a treat to find a quality company that does what they say they’ll do and also offer great customer service."

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.
