Hiring an Electrician: Understanding the Costs


Electricians are skilled professionals who handle various tasks. The cost of hiring a local electrician can vary depending on several factors, such as the specific job’s nature, duration, and complexity. Below are some common electrical jobs that can significantly impact your budget.

Outlet Installation

Installing a standard electrical outlet is a common service for most households. To make the most of your budget, have us install multiple outlets simultaneously or incorporate the installation within a larger electrical project. Additional costs may arise for specific requirements, such as outdoor outlets or larger 220-volt outlets for appliances like washers and dryers.

Whole House Rewiring

Rewiring an entire house is a significant and intricate task that requires the utmost care and expertise. The cost of such a project can vary substantially, depending on the size of the home. Professional electricians usually determine their charges based on the square footage of wiring required for the house.

Home Inspections

Before commencing any electrical work, it is advisable to have our professionals conduct a home electrical inspection. Home inspection costs vary based on factors like the location and size of the property.

Replacing the Circuit Breaker Box

The electrical circuit breaker box, along with its multiple electrical panels, is the central hub of your entire electrical system. The cost of replacing your electrical panel can vary based on factors such as the overall amperage capacity, the type of box required, and the complexity of the installation job.

Replacing Light Switches

Replacing a light switch will vary depending on the type you choose. Standard light switches are generally more affordable than double switches, dimmer switches, timer switches, orsmart switches. If you opt for a USB switch, it’s worth noting that these are relatively easy and quick to install, adding only a few extra dollars to the overall replacement cost.
