Your electrical system plays a crucial role in your overall comfort and how well your home functions. When you flip a light switch, you trust that your lamp will turn on and illuminate your home. However, switches, outlets and fixtures can malfunction, either because of a flaw or defect, or simply from normal aging and wear and tear. When dealing with electrical switches and fixtures, it's important to consult an experienced electrician who can safely make any needed repairs or upgrade your electrical system for increased efficiency and ease of use.

How to Find the Best Switch, Outlet & Fixture Repair Company Near You

If you want to install an electrical outlet or light switch or other fixture, there are plenty of lighting contractors, electricians and similar professionals near you. They may not all provide the same services, however, so it's important to interview each one to determine their strengths and how well they fit your electrical needs. Ask the following questions to ensure you find the right contractor for you:

  1. How long have you been in business?
  2. Are you licensed, bonded and insured?
  3. Can you provide references?
  4. What is your hourly rate?
  5. Can you provide an estimate before you begin work?
  6. What kind of guarantee do you offer?
  7. Can you give me a timeline before you start work?

Switch, Outlet & Fixture Installation Cost

Installing or replacing a switch or outlet requires the expertise of a licensed electrician, which means you'll pay not only for materials, but also an hourly fee for labor. The more fixtures you're having replaced or the more complex the process is, the more you'll pay. For example, it typically costs more to install a new outlet than to replace one. For installing an electrical outlet, you might pay anywhere from around $50 to over $400, with an average cost ranging somewhere between $150 and $200. For lighting fixtures, you'll pay a minimum of around $50 but could pay as much as $1,800. However, you'll likely pay anywhere from just under $200 to a little over $300.
