Finding electrical contractors in Omaha

Omaha skyline

Around two-thirds of households in Nebraska’s largest city are homeowners, according to U.S. data. At one point or another, all of them will have an electrical issue.

Almost always, it’s safer and more efficient to hire an electrician. If you go the DIY route, you risk injury and damage to your home.

Omaha residents hire electricians most commonly for these projects:

  • Upgrading electrical panels or wiring
  • Installing lighting fixtures, including recessed lighting
  • Installing ceiling fans
  • Fixing broken outlets and light switches
  • Inspecting a home for safety
  • Remodeling or construction

When hiring an electrician in Omaha, it helps to select from a group of highly reviewed contractors. Study reviews or ask friends and family to learn which electricians have positive feedback. Pay attention to comments about ease of scheduling, on-time appointments, professional appearance and attitude, ability to communicate, skill and knowledge, results and follow-up.

After finding a group of well-regarded electricians in Omaha, verify that each has a current license. Nebraska requires electricians to have a license from the Nebraska State Electrical Division. You can check a state license online.

Any electrician you bring into your home should also have proper licensing from Omaha. Master electricians, who have the highest classification in their field, may be bonded, but the city does not require insurance for electricians. Seek out an electrician in Omaha who has liability insurance coverage.

How much does an electrician in Omaha cost?

Most electricians in Omaha charge by the hour. The rate, on average, is $60 - $70. You may need to pay extra for any large parts. Some electricians in Omaha also will have a fee to account for incidental expenses, like travel costs; expect additional costs for emergency services.

Most electricians in Omaha offer free pricing estimates. Get two to three in writing so you know the price up front. Ask about satisfaction guarantees in case you aren’t happy with the outcome; reputable electricians will stand behind their work and make it right if necessary.

Don’t forget that certain kinds of electrical work may require permits in Omaha. Your electrician should have a thorough understanding of whether one is needed from the city or state before work begins.
