GFCI Outlet Installation & Replacement

GFCI outlets are required in kitchens, bathrooms, and garages, where the risk of electrical shock is greatest. GFCIs can be identified by the “test” and “reset” buttons located on the receptacle. These outlets help protect you from electrical hazards by monitoring the amount of electricity flowing in a circuit. The moment the outlet detects an imbalance in the flow of electricity, the GFCI cuts off power to the outlet.

    4 Common Electrical Outlet Installations

    USB Outlets

    Wouldn’t it be convenient if you could plug your smartphone’s USB charger right into the wall directly? Well, with a USB outlet, you can! USB outlets enable you to charge electronic devices using just a USB cord.

    Smart Outlets

    These are popular products. Homeowners are installing more and more smart devices in their homes every day. From smart speakers and smart thermostats to smart doorbells and more — smart products make it easy to keep an eye on your home from anywhere in the world using a cell phone.

    Tamper-Resistant (Childproof) Outlets

    Child-proof outlets that are tamper-resistant offer more reliable safety and protection than plastic outlet covers. Tamper-resistant devices cannot be removed from the outlet, offering much better safeguarding for small children in the home.

    Switched Outlets

    A switched outlet is one half power receptacle, one half-power switch. Anything you’ve plugged into the outlet can be turned off and turned on by a flip of the switch. This option can be handy if you have a hard-to-reach device that you want to be able to turn on and off easily.

    This essential addition to modern electric outlets is there to ensure your safety. It is a ground built into the outlet to prevent contact between a hot wire and a neutral one, thereby avoiding the danger of electric shock or fire. If you move into an older house, you will need to install these outlets to replace the old ones.
