  • More Complex Diagnostic - $250-$500: For more challenging issues like underground wiring or complex circuits in large buildings, requiring additional time and specialized equipment, this fee range applies.
  • Average Repair Cost: In many cases, after completing a diagnostic, repair options typically fall in the range of $750 to $1200. Common issues often involve bad connections to outlets and switches.
