What can a local electrician help with?

You know who to call if your lights stop working, but electricians can take care of much more than that. They install and maintain electrical systems, and provide services that include:  

They also carry out electrical installation condition reports (EICRs) that ensure your home’s electrics are safe. In case of an emergency, you can also hire an emergency electrician.

What are the signs of an electrical problem?

Here are five signs that your electrics are faulty: 

  1. Scorched sockets or switches 
  2. Flickering lights or a buzzing noise 
  3. Electric shocks when you plug things into sockets 
  4. Your fuse keeps blowing at random 
  5. A burnt smell that doesn’t go away 

It’s vital that you look after the wiring in your home. Failing to maintain your electrics properly could lead to an accident, like a shock or a fire. Damaged or old wiring is dangerous and should not be ignored.  

We don’t recommend electrical DIY. According to the NICEIC (Electrical Inspection Council), ‘the safest way to do DIY electrics is not to do DIY electrics’ as this can impact on the electrical safety of your home. 

Instead, if your electrics are showing any of these fault signs, we suggest you speak to an electrician as soon as possible. 

How much do electricians cost to hire?

The cost of hiring an electrician varies depending on the type of work and where you live in the UK. On average, you can expect to pay between £20 and £80 per hour. Here are some average costs: 

Electrical installation/repair jobAverage cost
Repair a light switchBetween £75 and 85
Replace a broken fuse box or consumer unitBetween £300 and £600
Get an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report)Between £100 and £350
Rewire your entire propertyBetween £3,000 and £12,000

Your home needs a full rewiring every 25 years, and an electrics assessment every 10 years. For more details about rewiring your home, read our rewiring cost guide. Also check out our electrical installation condition report (EICR) blog to find out more about getting your electrics tested. 

We recommend you ask for a few quotes from local electricians before making a decision. 

Hire a specialist today.

What to look for in an electrician

Picking a qualified electrician will help you avoid stress and costly repairs. Before you hire, do your research to ensure who you pick: 

  1. Is highly experienced, with a strong history of quality projects 
  2. Has all the right licenses and insurance needed to protect you 
  3. Has a good range of positive reviews from previous clients 
  4. Is offering the services you need, and is able to carry out the work in the time frame you need it by 
  5. Is quoting a price and payment option that you are happy with, having compared the quote with other electricians 

Local electricians are more likely to respond quickly, such as during emergencies. Post your job today to find a skilled electrician near you. 


Other electrician FAQs

Do I need an electrician to change a light fitting?

Yes. While changing a light fitting might seem straightforward, it involves working with your home’s electrical system, which can be dangerous if not handled properly.

H3: How often should I rewire my home?

Rewiring is generally recommended every 25-30 years, depending on the property’s condition and updates.

What certifications do electricians need?

In the UK, electricians should be NICEIC or ELECSA certified, ensuring they meet national safety standards.

Tomasz recently completed two jobs we had. One was fitting a new bathroom from scratch - we didn't even have a window in our home and the guys had to form the opening. The second job was replacing a leaking polycarbonate garage roof with a conventional wood and felt version, along with replacement/extending the guttering. I'm happy to say that both jobs have been completed to my satisfaction and I'd not hesitate to use Tomasz again.
