    "Richard Reid was extremely courteous, professional and did an outstanding job on this request. I had him in the next week to restore power to a receptacle so that I could replace my lamp post outside the house. I had a number of others look at it and he was the only one who was able to make the repairs. He also discover an outlet in my garage that was actually burning through the wires and fixed it as well. His charges are extremely reasonable. I would and have already highly recommended him to friends."

On the day of the appointment, Bob came early, did his job and left a positive impression. Also, their prices are very reasonable. I recommend them to anyone who likes great service."

    "K&K did an excellent job fixing circuits and installing chandeliers and solar-power light over our garage. It turns out the job took much longer than expected due to various complications, but the crew worked methodically to resolve all issues to our satisfaction with the same estimated price. Would definitely refer the service to others in our community. ZENG @ Rockville"

    "I just built my house a year ago and needed to add an EV charger to my garage. Trish called me within an hour and set up an appointment for Hugo to come out the next day. There were two additional parts to the job I needed done as well, and one of them was a bit more expensive than I was expecting... but honestly, I had no idea how much to expect for the third part of the job so I can't blame them at all. There was no pressure at all to complete the more expensive portion of the job when I told them I'd have to pass on it at the time. The actual job was scheduled for the following week, and Tommy and Kevin showed up on time and were done in less than 3 hours. They gave me a few recommendations for drywall repair as well since there were three small holes that needed cut to run the new circuit for the EV charger. Highly recommended... Hugo & Kevin were extremely knowledgeable and helpful with all questions from a new homeowner like myself."

    "We had an excellent experience with Ariel and the Precise team. We hired them to install an EV charging station at our house. While other companies would only give us an estimate over the phone, or waited weeks to respond, they sent a representative to the house the next day and then gave us a bid within 24 hours. Their bid was also $300 under the second lowest bid. They were professional, prompt and completed the job in one day. When we asked for a small modification after installation (not their fault), they sent a rep back to modify the charger at no additional cost. Ariel checked in by phone and text throughout the process to make sure we were satisfied. It's refreshing to find a home services provider that is honest, responsive, good value for money and great quality. We will definitely use again."

    "I hired Stifflers Electric Service to rewire motion detector lights on my home to fix improper wiring install from the previous owner. Mr. Stiffler definitely knows what he's talking about. The price for the job was very reasonable. David completed the project promptly and the result exceeded my expectations. David also gave me good advice on other electrical work and saved me some money when recommended a remote switch for the future instead of installing a hard switch which would be more expensive. In addition, Mr. Stiffler also promised to come back and replace a blown light in one of the motion detector lights for no charge."

He added a circuit to my generator panel, installed a new coax cable (a bit of a challenge do to the location and construction materials used in my house) & was (finally) able to get a internet jack working for me. The Internet jack was the biggest challenge but he was persistent & finally diagnosed the problem. During his first visit we discussed a whole house surge protector& he returned 2 days later & installed this for me as well. He is obviously very knowlegable, competent and sticks with the job until it is done. He was a pleasure to work with courteous and willing to "teach" me. Highly recommend."

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.
