    "Several whole house remodel projects were done by him. Very hard worker, clean, and quick! Great end result."

    Panel Upgrades, Outlets and Fixtures

    "Now days you are reluctant to hire anyone to do any kind of work for you because you don't know what you will end up with. EK Electric is the exception. I couldn't be happier with Ermin's work. He is always on time, courteous and a hard worker. He was initially called to wire and install a chandelier, sconce and 2 ceiling fans. He did such a great job for a reasonable price, I had him do pot lights in the kitchen (14' ceiling), under cabinet lighting and install an island fixture. He even discovered some frayed wires when he removed a light switch. He will be my electrician from now on and I will recommend him to everyone."

    "Teal Johnson came out and repaired the outlet in my garage that was preventing my garage door openers from working. The job was done in no time and he came back the next day to repair a recessed light fixture in a 15ft ceiling. He didn't charge extra for the light fixture job. He said it was included with the fee from his original visit. The price was very fair. He was professional and he knew what he was doing. I will definitely hire him again. Pam W., Tucson, AZ"

    "I think that the electrical work was OK. But the placing of the cutout sheetrock circles was sloppy in places. and the replacement of the bedroom light/fan was sloppy, I had to take down the bottom pieces of the fixture and re-install. Also, the ring from the very top of the fixture was not re-installed, appears to be missing something, or something was broken."

    Handyman for Multiple Small and Large Projects, Interior or Exterior Painting for small or large projects, Drywall - Repair

    "Can not say enough good things about John. He was very dependable and showed up when he said he would. Work was outstanding. Had two separate jobs for him. First job was installing 3 screen doors which turned out great. Was not an easy job. He had to custom install all the doors. Second job was removing 6 eight foot long and 2 four foot fluorescent tube lights in our basement. Replaced with recessed lighting, repaired, patched and painted the ceiling. Also installed a circular light and repaired and painted ceiling in our laundry room. He is hard worker. Would hire him again and would highly recommend him. Maryann P"

    "I highly recommend Rosas Electrical and will be using them for future projects. The work done was great and at a very fair price. Allen was very nice and patient. I had 2 lights added to an existing switch in my dining room and kitchen and he even installed the new lighting fixtures for me as well.

    Temperature Control Electrical, LLC Logo
    Tucson, AZ·


    "Temperature Control was the last company I came across on Angiâ  s List to get a quote on completely replacing my HVAC system. They were PHENOMENAL! Brock was the rep who showed up to my home, gave me a run down of the local business and what they offer, and gave me a quote. He was super nice and also assured me the company could price match the lowest quote I came across, and they totally delivered on that promise. About 3 months after meeting Brock and gathering more quotes, I sent him my lowest quote and he came $100 less than that! By this time, my HVAC burned out (on a Thursday) and I was also scared it was going to take them weeks to come out for installation. After going through scheduling and payment options, they said they could come out the following week (that upcoming Tuesday)! A technician, Dan, came out the following day to pre-measure. Then came installation a few days later. Dustin, Tony, and Juan the installation technicians, were so pleasant and worked diligently to replace my entire system. After the installation, Dustin balanced the airflow and walked me through how to work the new thermostat they installed. 10/10 would recommend and would 100% use them again!"

    "The man that came was very fast and did a great job. The price was the best I had from the other 5 people I compared them to. He was very honest. He could have charged me extra for a piece that I thought was needed and would have added time, but he told me that i didn't need it and saved a total of $90"

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Tucson, Arizona Average
  • Typical Range
    $119 - $428
  • Low End - High End
    $65 - $1,000

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.
