Electric outlet Repair & Installation
If you’ve noticed that the electrical outlets in your home aren’t working as well as they use to, or they aren’t able to hold the plug, it may be time to repair or replace it. Having malfunctioning outlets can be a serious shock and fire hazard. If you notice that your outlets spark when you plug or unplug an appliance, it is a sign to install a new outlet. You mustn’t try to repair or replace your outlets on your own without the help of a professional.
Each household electrical outlet consists of two three-pronged, polarized receptacles. Each receptacle has a 120-volt ‘hot’ wire, a neutral wire and a ground. Since the code requires both ground or bound wire, it ensures both functional and safe delivery of power to your household.
GFCI outlets are ground-fault circuit interrupters. These outlets contain test and reset buttons on them, and they are used to help prevent electric shocks. Codes require GFCIs in all homes, so older homes may need to update their outlets to GFCI outlets to keep their homes safe.
NC electrical code requires you to have GFCI outlets installed in bathrooms, kitchens, and outdoor areas because these areas often get wet. The GFCI outlets’ built-in feature ensures safety. For example, if you were to blow dry your hair and dropped the dryer in a sink filled with water, the GFCI outlet would shut off the circuit to prevent electric shock.
