This depends on the scope of the work required. Wiring up an extra outlet in a kitchen or installing a ceiling fan in a bedroom is a simple task. Mapping out an entire wiring system or a new commercial property is a much more complex task.

The rate could be on the lower end of the price range. Or it could be $100+/hourly for complex jobs.

The best thing you can do is to call us on (833) 588-1801 and speak to one of our friendly team about your requirements and we will happily provide a quote.

This will depend on a few factors.

  • Does the wiring needs to be replaced or was the wiring just loose?
  • Does the outlet itself need to be replaced?
  • Is the outlet in an easy to access location?

Generally speaking, outlets are simple work.

When you hire an electrician be it Two Brothers Electrical or another service provider. It’s always a good idea to ask the following questions and be happy with the answers before you proceed.

  1. Do you hold a current electricians license?
  2. Is there a permit needed for this job?
  3. Do you complete this type of work often?
  4. Is your solution temporary or a long term fix to my problem?
  5. Do you have a service guarantee or provide a warranty?
  6. Will you complete any repairs associated with the work?
  7. Will I have a disruption to my electrical service?
  8. Will an electrical inspection be performed as part of the job?

Yes, you can.

Charging an electric car is similar to charging a mobile phone. In the sese that you just plug in and charge at night. And you top up during the day as needed. To charge an electric car at home you should have a proper charging point installed by a licensed professional as the charging load needed is different from regular household appliances.

An electrician might install an outlet in the upside-down position so it’s easy to identify as the switch-controlled receptacle. Most people are visual. So it makes it easy to see that the outlet is actually switch controlled vs a regular outlet.

Yes, we do! And it’s in your favor to use an electrician to do a new TV install.

An electrician can provide a quality guarantee that other contractors generally can’t provide. A new Flat-screen TV is heavy and requires wall mounting in most cases. The right position needs to be used to hold the TV in place correctly and the wiring needs to be installed correctly.

Yes, you do.

Any extensive electrcial work that you require in your home or business including the installation of something simple such as a new power outlet will need a permit. Your local Building Codes Division (BCD) field office or by your local building department will issue this permit.

We take care of this when you hire Two Brothers Electrical.

Troubleshooting is a common word for any electrician. It’s pretty much what we do on a daily basis. When someone has an electrical problem they are calling us to “fix it” or rather “troubleshoot” the problem. In regards to how much we charge? Well, that depends on the work involved. The issue could be anything on a long list that is almost endless. The best thing to do is call us and explain the problem you are having and we can take it from there.

This depends on the type of work. For example if it’s the replacement of an old outlet for a new one without any other work we generally charge a flat fee. Or a ceiling fan that is being replaced. It’s simple work and generally a flat fee.

If we need to troubleshoot a problem with an initial visit. Source parts. Conduct an investigation on problem areas with damaged wiring in the home and a few other things. Then we may charge an agreed upon hourly rate or me might charge a flat project rate.

It depends on the scope of work. Please call us to discuss your project.

It might seem expensive, but a quality electrician will come to your home and work until the job is done. Because of this dedicated labor, they often charge more than a part-time worker or general contractor would charge for an hourly rate.

In addition, the average person has no understanding of wiring from buildings to homes and from outlets within homes to power sources. Another major factor is that many states have strict licensing processes which must be completed by apprenticeships as well as full licensure, security checks and certification before one can even begin their business in certain towns/cities/counties; this creates an unbelievable barrier for entry into the electrical contracting world.

All of this is built into the price.

One thing to remember is that a quality electrician is not expensive. Rather, what is expensive is when you try to cut costs. Potentially cause damage to your property or even inflict hard on yourself with a DIY job or trying to get a general contractor to complete work that should have been done by a licensed professional.

What we can assure you is that when you hire Two Brothers Electrical we get the job done right. The first time.

It’s worth noting that most jurisdictions require permits for any electrical work done by an individual. Some landlords will not pass inspection if the inspector determines they didn’t have an electric work permit with their name on it.

You also need to think about insurance. Working without permits and without insurance can come with steep fines so, again, don’t take chances.

Electricians go through a thousand plus hours of on the job training from the day they start their apprenticeship until they are qualified. And even then they work semi-supervised. There is a reason for this. Dealing with live electricity is complicated and dangerous.

Call a professional when you need electrical work completed.

How do you know if you need an electrical panel upgrade? Well, a good rule of thumb is that a replacement should occur 25 years after the original was installed. It’s not definite but in our experience, it’s a good rule to follow.

We can help with electrical panel repairs, upgrades, and full replacements. Call today on (833) 588-1801 to speak to our friendly team about your electrical panel.

Expect to pay a few thousand, minimum, if you want new wiring done for an entire home. For an old house, expect to pay much more.

There are many specifics that go into the entire rewiring of the hour and there is no “one that fits all answer” unfortunately. To get a proper quote it’s best to call us.

The cost of ceiling fan installation depends on the type and size of the ceiling fan and how difficult it will be to install.

To elaborate, The cost for installing a ceiling fan varies depending on the difficulty involved with locating the appropriate electrical wiring and initiating power hotspots in accordance with current standards as set by UL listings. If no electrical wires exist, or if they are inaccessible due to having been buried behind drywall, you can expect a higher quote. If the wiring was previously put in but the fan was never connected and it’s a simple fan installation. The quote will be cheaper.

“How much does it cost to install XYZ?” is a question we get daily. Replace XYZ with a thousand plus different possible things. And the answer is always the same. Please call us to discuss the specifics of your project as we need to ask many questions to understand the entire project before we can provide a quote.
