    "Had an emergency the late afternoon before Thanksgiving -- the chain on my light fixture in the dining room wouldn't work and thus I could not turn on the lights. I called HBA and he came over within 20 minutes. It turned out that it was a bit more complicated than just the chain. B.J. went to Loew's and called us from there and said the part we needed was $45 but they had the exact same fixture for $99 and did we want a new one? So he brought us the new lamp/fan and put it together in about 10 minutes and installed it just as quickly. Saved our holiday!"

    "This was/is a big project--rewiring the kitchen, family room, and garage in a 60-YO house to bring it up to current codes. From the office to the electricians and their helpers, everyone was extremely professional, good about communicating, and able to handle every issue and concern with ease, keeping to both the budge and the timeline. I would not hesitate to call them again for other electrical projects."

    "Daniel and his colleague did a great job! Initially, they installed lighting fixtures, but then I decided to install recessed lighting instead. Before he returned to do another job, we discussed the kinds of fixtures and placement. His follow up and communication was great throughout. He completed the job and I was extremely satisfied with how it turned out. Am thinking of other jobs he can do! UPDATE 4/10/2019: This is the third time that I have hired Daniel. He is always the consummate professional. Very easy to work with. Will deliver exactly as promised and does excellent work. In addition to installing 6 recessed lights, he moved and installed a fan and replaced another fan in a different room."

    "Got electrical needs? I strongly recommend that you call this company for a quote at least. Amit the owner and his crew are polite, professional and reliable. After other electricians were quoting me ridiculous prices to install under cabinet lighting, Amit stopped by, gave me a reasonable price and even performed my lighting installation that same day. Lights were working well until I found a faulty switch which had nothing to do with their installation. But Amit sent someone from his crew on another day and kindly fixed the problem switch, no charge. Thank you PHEC!"

In addition, Adel committed to and succeeded in solving a wiring issue that required attic and crawl space work. He maintained a positive, professional, can-do attitude the entire time, which put my mind at ease. He will be my go-to electrician moving forward."

I am someone with very limited (thatâ s being generous) knowledge of IT and network wiring work, and Andy understood exactly what needed to be done despite my very lacking description. 10/10 will hire again for future IT needs."

Jonny Won did a fantastic job on the installation of our rooftop television at the property I manage in Downtown LA. Not only did he see where we could improve our existing television, he saw what needed to be repaired so the new television would not run into the same problem in the future. Johnny's experience and knowledge in his field is quite astonishing, he seems to have what it takes to get any job done. Johnny will succeed in all that he does, and am confident he can improve your audio/visual system in a timely manner.

    "Christian was great to work with. I hired him to install an EV charger at my home. It was challenging because the electric panel was on the exact opposite side of the house from my driveway, and I was concerned about how the installation would look aesthetically with having to run wire to the EV charger. Christian walked me through the options and installed the new wiring in the best possible, most unobtrusive way, going the extra mile to work in the crawlspace beneath the house to minimize any exterior wires. He was upfront with costs, communicated clearly throughout the project, and was easy to work with. I highly recommend Christian for any electrical project."

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.
