    "I hired Salone Solutions through Qmerit, Electrify America's nationwide network of local contractors to install the Electrify America L2 home charger for electric vehicles. I work for Electrify America and was going to receive my 9.6 kW wifi-enabled, app-operated charger soon and needed a NEMA 14-50 (240V) outlet installed in my garage to plug the wall box into. I selected SaloneSolutions from three vendor quotes that Qmerit provided. When evaluating the bids, Les Salone, the owner, called me directly and discussed his offer addressing all the questions I had. Because his quote was very competitive and he had the quickest availability to get the job done, I selected Les. On the day of the install a week or so later, Chris, the electrician, showed up right on time. We discussed how he was going to do the install. He accommodated my wish to run part of the wire behind the wall to minimize the amount of armored cable visible on the surface of my garage wall. This was a more elaborate process and required cutting open the dry wall. Chris did a very clean and expert job putting the cut-out back in the wall afterwards. This made it very easy for me to mud and paint over afterwards for an absolutely clean and seamless looking installation. He tested the new outlet, showed me how it was working, and wrapped up the job in less then 90 minutes. When the day later coincidentally my drier stopped working and I called Les to ask if this could possibly have anything to do with the installation of the 50 amp circuit breaker for my EV charger in the fuse box, Les sent Chris back out the very next day to double-check. Turns out it had nothing to do with the install and was just pure coincidence. The circuit breaker of the drier had failed and needed to be replaced. Chris went above and beyond and took care of that for me on the spot. I will use them again next time I need an electrician and can only highly recommend SaloneSolutions to anyone else as well."

    "Hunter patiently explained how they would assess the cause of blown fuse associated with my dryer. When Jose came he carefully diagnosed how the dryer was drawing electricity and was able to confirm that the fuse rather than the dryer was the source of the problem . Jose replaced the fuse and explained to me how the fuses in the power box work. He was helpfully assisted by Luis and the two are a great team. I appreciated how Jose communicated with Hunter to confirm the diagnostics. I wouldn't hesitate to call upon them again as they competently troubleshooted and addressed the problem at a reasonable price."

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.
