    Residential Electrician FAQ's

    Although being an electrician is not a bad paying job, it is not easy to become rich working as an electrician.

    Electricians work with electricity, which is a dangerous job. A level of hazard pay is added into most electricians fees. Electrical companies have added costs on top of the rate of the Electrician doing the work. Some of the costs electrical companies face are gas, vehicle maintenance, insurance, and tools. Most electricians have an average of $3000-$5000 in tools to perform the work required in the electrical industry, where electrical companies face even higher prices for specialty tools to perform some industrial and commercial tasks.
