Your Electrical and Wiring Repair questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does electrical repair service cost?

Electricians charge $50 to $130 per hour to make repairs. Most electricians also charge a $100 to $200 service call fee, which is applied to the first hour of work.

Electrical work costs $150 to $600 on average for small jobs like replacing an outlet or circuit breaker, or $2,000 to $10,000+ for large jobs like rewiring a house.

How much does electrical wiring repair cost?

Electrical wiring repair costs $10 to $15 per linear foot and typically involves removing the faulty wiring, running new wire, and rewiring the circuit. If all the wiring in the home is faulty or no longer meets code requirements, rewiring a whole house costs $10,000 to $30,000.

Do electricians give free estimates?

Electricians typically give free estimates for small repair jobs, like replacing an outlet or light switch. However, most electricians charge a $100 to $200 service call fee for more complex projects because they require an in-person evaluation. Contact one of our recommended electricians to request an estimate for your repair project.

Is hiring an electrician worth it for electrical repairs?

Yes, it's worth hiring a licensed electrician instead of handling the work yourself unless you have extensive experience. Electrical work is extremely dangerous and requires knowledge of the home's current wiring conditions, existing circuits, and local code requirements.

What are signs my electrical wiring needs repairs?

Your electrical wiring may need repairs if you notice any of these issues:

  • Flickering lights
  • Dead outlets
  • Circuit breaker trips frequently
  • Outlets feel warm to the touch
  • Discoloartion or burn marks around outlets or switches
  • Burning smell
  • Mild electrical shocks when touching a switch or appliance

What repair services do electricians perform?

Electricians offer these repair services:

  • Electrical wiring replacement
  • Electrical outlet replacement
  • Grounding electrical outlets
  • Circuit breaker replacement
  • Electrical panel or fuse box replacement
  • Light switch replacement
  • Ceiling fan replacement
  • Generator repair
  • Electrical code updates

How can I hire the best electrician for repairs?

Follow these tips to hire the best electrician for your repair needs:

  • Get 3 in-person estimates to compare.
  • Browse their reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Hire a licensed, bonded, and insured electrician who has been in business for 5+ years.
  • Avoid hiring the company with the lowest quote as quality may suffer.
  • Get a detailed estimate, contract, and warranty in writing before the work begins.
  • Never pay in full before the project is complete.

What questions should I ask electricians?

Ask these questions when evaluating electricians for your project:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Are you licensed, bonded, and insured?
  • Can you provide local references with contact information?
  • Will this repair project require a permit, and will you obtain it?
  • Are all permit fees included in your estimate?
  • What additional costs might come up during the project?
  • How long will the job take?
  • Do you warranty the labor?
