Frequently asked questions about electricans

Electricians perform a wide range of jobs related to installation, maintenance and repairs of electrical systems and components. Some of these jobs include:
  • Installing electrical wire in new buildings
  • Full property rewire to upgrade the electrical wiring
  • Installing and upgrading electrical panels
  • Outlet (sockets) and switch installation
  • Installing light fixtures
  • Installing ceiling fans
  • Configuring smart home devices
  • Emergency repairs
  • Safety inspections (including PAT testing and EICR)
  • Installing security equipment and lighting
Some electricians will specialise in specific work like installation of electrics and some will be happy doing the smaller jobs such as light fittings and sockets. The levels of training required for an electrician depends on whether the work will be in domestic or commercial environments. In the UK, electricians should have passed NVQ qualifications to become a fully qualified electrician.

The cost of electrical work will depend on the type of job. Smaller jobs like installing sockets and light fittings will usually be charged at an hourly rate and this will typically be between £30 to £50.


For larger jobs like a full rewiring, a day rate of around £300 to £450 will usually be charged.

The cost of rewiring a house will depend on the size of the house and the layout of the electrics. The average cost for rewiring a 3-bedroom house will be somewhere between £4,000 and £8,000.

Rewiring an average 3-bedroom house will take around 7 days, but will vary depending on how many people are working on it and whether there are any complications.

If you have an older property and the electrical wiring has not been upgraded, you will need to have your house rewired to ensure that it is safe. If there are any electrical issues that you have noticed, it is important that you get a qualified electrician to check your electrics.

To get a new plug socket installed in a room, this will usually cost between £100 and £200. Replacing an existing socket will be much less, at around £50.

Don’t risk choosing the wrong electrician by simply searching ‘electrician near me’. Electrical work must be carried out by qualified electricians and a poor standard of electrical work can be catastrophic.
