Replacement is usually recommended when the receptacle is chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged. Replacement should also be considered if the receptacle does not meet current electrical codes. A licensed electrician can inspect the receptacle and advise on any repairs or upgrades that need to be done in order to bring it up to code. Replacement of a faulty or outdated receptacle can help prevent fires, shocks, and other safety issues resulting from electrical problems. Additionally, replacing an old receptacle with a new one can often improve energy efficiency, as most modern designs are more efficient than their predecessors. Ultimately, having a qualified electrician assess the situation and make recommendations is always the best practice.


Adding an outlet to your home can be a great way to increase convenience, but the process is complex. The cost of such a project includes both equipment and labor costs and varies greatly depending on several factors such as the location of the new outlet and how much wiring is required. To get an accurate estimate of what your addition would cost, it is best to call us and speak with one of our specialists who will be happy to provide you with all the information you need.

GFCI outlets detect a difference in the amount of current going into and out of an outlet. If there is more current going out than coming back, it is likely that electricity has gone through a person’s body and the GFCI outlet will shut off power to the outlet. GFCI outlets should be used in any areas that may possibly become wet, such as kitchens, baths, laundry rooms, outdoors, basements, garages, and workshops. Damp areas can make you susceptible to dangerous electric shock, but by using a GFCI outlet will greatly reduce the risk of injury.

Due to the electrical code, we have strict guidelines and limitations that we need to follow. However there is still ample flexibility, and this can be discussed with our licensed electricians.

Split receptacles are an easy and efficient way to add convenience to your home. By splitting a single wall outlet, you can control one of the outlets with a wall switch while the other stays hot all the time. This trick is especially beneficial in bedrooms or home offices — plug a lamp into the switched outlet, and it will turn on as soon as you enter the room! With split receptacles, it’s never been easier to add convenience to any space.

It is important to pay attention to worn-out outlets. Loose plugs are a common sign of a worn-out outlet, and they can be dangerous if not taken care of. A loose plug could lead to wiring ruin in your walls, circuit breakers tripping, or fuses blowing. In addition, when worn-out outlets are not properly connected it can cause electrical arcing and increase the risk of house fires. It is essential that warn out outlets are replaced with new ones for safety reasons. Taking prompt action can prevent more serious damages later on. Make sure you check all your outlets regularly for signs of wear and tear, such as looseness or discoloration. We can replace those worn-out outlets right away to keep yourself and your family safe from potential hazards.
