Finding electrical contractors in Tampa

skyline

Florida homeowners use more electricity than the average American household. So the Tampa - St. Petersburg - Clearwater metro area has lots of electricians to hire for a full range of services. The latest available data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed over 5,700 electricians plying their trade here.

Here are some of the most common reasons Tampa residents call electricians:

  • Blinking or flickering lights
  • On-again, off-again recessed lights
  • Half an outlet works, but the other half doesn’t
  • Dead outlets
  • Circuit breaker tripping
  • Warm wall switch or switch that doesn’t control anything
  • Light bulbs burning out at a high rate

If you are experiencing any of these issues, or you need a lighting fixture or ceiling fan installed, using a professional electrician is usually the safest and most cost-effective option. Electricians in Tampa also do safety inspections and can help you figure out why your electricity bill is so high.

It’s important the electrician in Tampa you hire has these characteristics:

  • Licensed and insured: The electrician should be licensed for electrical contracting either at the state or local level. Licensed electricians in Tampa have met requirements for education and experience and have passed a written examination. Licensed electricians are bonded and have liability insurance and workers compensation coverage. You can check to see if a Tampa electrician is licensed with the state and Hillsborough County.
  • Reviewed well by customers: Read online customer reviews to learn about customer satisfaction. Pay attention to comments about scheduling, on-time appointments, attitude and communication, results and pricing. You can also ask family, friends and co-workers for recommendations.
  • 24/7 service: You want to hire an electrician who’s reachable at any time in case of an emergency.
  • Upfront, accurate pricing: An electrician in Tampa should tell you the cost of the repair, installation, maintenance or inspection before work starts.
  • Guaranteed satisfaction: Find a business that is committed to the customer. Many electricians in Tampa include warranties for labor and parts that last multiple years or forever. Some include a 100% satisfaction guarantee or don’t charge you if a repair isn’t successful.

Cost of electricians in Tampa

Electricians in Tampa charge either a flat fee for services or an hourly rate for labor, which averages $50 - $100. Some will include a trip fee or service charge to cover the costs of travel and small parts. Emergency services in the middle of the night or during weekends generally comes at a higher price.

Try getting written estimates from at least two or three licensed, insured, well-reviewed electricians before deciding which to hire. A quote should include a guaranteed price with itemized labor and parts costs and should indicate how long the work is expected to take.

Keep in mind that both the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County have permitting requirements for electrical work. Your electrician can help you determine whether a permit is necessary.
