Electrical Outlet Services We Offer

Electrical Outlet Installation

If you’re building a new home or remodeling your existing one, it’s crucial to have proper electrical outlet installation. Our experienced electricians will ensure that your outlets are installed correctly, according to the electrical code. We will assess your power needs and strategically place outlets throughout your home to provide convenient access to electricity. 

Electrical Outlet Replacement

Over time, electrical outlets can become worn out or damaged, posing a safety hazard. If you notice any signs of wear or if your outlets are not functioning properly, it’s essential to get them replaced. Our electricians will safely remove the old outlet, inspect the wiring, and install a new one. We use high-quality outlets and wire connectors to ensure a reliable and long-lasting solution. 

GFCI Upgrades

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets are designed to protect you from electrical shock. They have a test and reset button and can detect imbalances in the electrical current, shutting off the power if necessary. GFCI outlets are especially important in areas where water is present, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and outdoor spaces. 

5 Signs It Is Time to Replace Your Electrical Outlet

  • Hot Wires: If you notice that your outlet or the surrounding wall is warm to the touch, it could indicate a problem with the wiring. Hot wires can lead to electrical fires and should be addressed immediately.
  • Frequent Tripping of Circuit Breaker: If your circuit breaker trips frequently when you plug something into an outlet, it may be a sign that the outlet is faulty. This could be due to loose wiring or a worn-out outlet.
  • Sparks or Smoke: Any sparks or smoke coming from an outlet is a clear indication of a serious problem. Turn off the power to that outlet immediately and contact a professional electrician.
  • Loose or Damaged Cover Plate: If the cover plate of your outlet is loose, cracked, or damaged, it’s a good idea to replace the outlet. A damaged cover plate can expose the wiring, posing a safety risk.
  • Outlets Not Holding Plugs Securely: If your plugs are not fitting snugly into the outlet or if they keep falling out, it may be a sign that the outlet needs to be replaced. Loose connections can lead to electrical shocks or damage to your appliances.

Benefits of Installing GFCI Outlets in Your Home

  • Protection from Electrical Shock: GFCI outlets are designed to quickly detect ground faults and shut off the power, preventing electrical shocks.
  • Compliance with Electrical Code: Many building codes now require GFCI outlets in specific areas of the home, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and outdoor spaces. Installing GFCI outlets ensures that your home meets the necessary safety standards.
  • Reduced Fire Risk: GFCI outlets can help prevent electrical fires by detecting imbalances in the electrical current and shutting off the power before a fire can start.
  • Increased Home Value: Upgrading to GFCI outlets can be an attractive selling point for potential buyers, as it demonstrates that your home is up to date with modern safety standards.
  • Convenient Test and Reset Button: GFCI outlets have a built-in test and reset button, making it easy to check if the outlet is functioning properly and reset it if necessary.

What to Consider When Installing a New Electrical Outlet

When installing a new electrical outlet, there are a few important factors to consider:

  • Location: Determine where you need the outlet and ensure it is easily accessible. Consider the layout of your furniture and appliances to determine the most convenient placement.
  • Power Source: Identify the nearest power source and ensure it has enough capacity to support the new outlet. If necessary, consult with an electrician to assess your electrical system’s capability.
  • Types of Outlets: Decide on the type of outlet you need based on your power requirements. Consider whether you need standard wall outlets, USB outlets, or specialized outlets for specific appliances.
  • Electrical Box: Ensure that the electrical box can accommodate the new outlet. If you’re unsure, consult with an electrician to determine if any modifications or upgrades are necessary.
  • Ground Wires: Ensure that the outlet is properly grounded to protect against electrical shock. If you’re unsure about the grounding process, it’s best to hire a professional electrician.

Frequently Asked Questions About Electrical Outlets

Can I install a new outlet myself? 

While installing a new outlet may seem straightforward, it involves working with electrical wiring, which can be dangerous if not done correctly. It’s best to hire a licensed electrician to ensure the installation is done safely and in compliance with the electrical code.

How often should I test my GFCI outlets? 

It’s recommended to test your GFCI outlets at least once a month. Simply press the test button, which should cause the reset button to pop out. Then, press the reset button to restore power to the outlet.

What should I do if I receive an electrical shock from an outlet? 

If you receive an electrical shock from an outlet, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately. Contact a professional electrician to inspect and repair the outlet to prevent further incidents.

Can I replace an existing outlet with a GFCI outlet? 

Yes, you can replace an existing outlet with a GFCI outlet. However, if the existing outlet is not grounded, it’s crucial to install a GFCI outlet with proper labeling to indicate it is not grounded.

How do I know if my outlet is up to code? 

If your home was built before the current electrical code requirements, it’s possible that your outlets may not be up to code. Consult with a licensed electrician to inspect your outlets and ensure they meet the necessary safety standards.
