Electrical technicians are usually electricians that specialize in troubleshooting electrical problems for industrial equipment such as CNC machines, PLC, and motor controls. An electrical technician doesn’t have to specialize in these fields, which is where the term is usually used.
There is no real difference between an electrician and an electrical technician. The term is primarily used to describe someone who works more with electronics vs someone who would install electrical systems with that said someone qualified to work on electronics is not necessarily qualified to work on electrical systems but electricians are qualified to work on any and all electrical equipment.
A service electrician is an electrician that usually handles the troubleshooting and repairs of electrical equipment that is not working properly. This type of work tends to be smaller in nature as sometimes the issues are loose connections, blown fuses, or faulty breakers. Service electricians usually have diagnostic equipment to help them pinpoint the failure points and circuit tracers to find where a circuit goes to.
There is no right answer. A fair price can not be pinpointed to a set number as some electricians have a wider skill set than others and so a premium price tag sometimes is accounted for. It is not uncommon for some electrical companies to charge $80 -$135/hr to perform certain tasks. On the other hand, you can also find unlicensed, uninsured electricians on classified ads offering far lower rates. The more skills and tools a company can provide to accomplish a task, most often than not demands a higher hourly or flat rate to do so. A fair price is a price you will feel comfortable paying for a certain skill set, professionalism, and accountability you want from an electrician.
Electricians usually charge between $90 – $135 an hour in Canada. Some companies charge a minimum fee and some charge a call-out fee to cover the cost of the fuel and travel time to go do smaller jobs.
