    Full Electrical for Additions and Remodels, Outlets, Fixtures, and Switches, Wiring or Panel Upgrades

    "Ahmed, was professional, and friendly. I had an outlet burn up in my garage. I usually change out my own outlets and switches. But since there was an issue I hired Ahmed. He not only fixed the outlet he installed a designated outlet for my car charger and replaced a breaker. I would hire Ahmed in a heart beat to do any electrical work at my house."

    Electrical, Electrical Troubleshooting

    "When we needed an electrician for a small job at our home, we asked our friend who knew Alfonso. He raved about the extensive rewiring work Alfonso had done on his whole house remodel. So, we called Alfonso who came out to look. It was a small job of safely off the circuits from our demolished garage and preparing them for future use. Alfonso investigated and then explained our options for this job as well as a possible future upgrade to our main panel and installing an EV charging system. We agreed on a date and he arrived early and worked without a hitch through to completion. The hardest part was the location, in a very tight, awkward space. He had to crawl in and out several times, but always with a smile on his face. His work was neat and clean, and it actually took him less time than anticipated. Alfonso is a good communicator and possesses a fine sense of humor. I strongly recommend him to any homeowners or businesses looking for a knowledgeable, dependable, and skilled electrician."

    "Yep, Indaspec is a five start company. They were responsive and professional. The system we got has boosted our 2003 system and cost 1/5th the price. It will pay itself off in 3 years, possibly less. They were efficient in the installation - took about 1.2 days. The connection between our system and the app on our phones is super easy and now my husband and I have been high- fiving each other once we find out how much the new system is producing. Get the solar, Guys! This company is a gem! The office manager is a sweetheart and the bidding process was easy. The installer was a man of few words for me (I didn't really know anything about the tech part), but took time to speak to my curious and informed contractor husband. He was patient and explained everything so that my husband felt satisfied that he was doing right by our beloved and somewhat coddled home."

    "Cesar helped me and my wife with some electrical projects in our 2 homes, apparently we had something called knob and tube and Cesar explained to us the risks of having that type of wiring in our home, he quoted us to replace all of this wiring we agreed on the price and he proceeded to perform the job in a very professional way, we had the job inspected and even the inspector was very impressed on how the job got done, so I hired him again to do EV charger installation and the main panel needed to be upgraded in my other home since it was an old panel he explained to be a zinsco panel I went online and effectively this thing was a fire hazard! Thank God for Cesar! Once again pulled the permits and not even one flaw we are so thankful we found Cesar, you can definitely see the passion and care he puts into it.

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.
