Older properties may feature outdated electrical systems that can’t keep up with our increasing technological demands. The typical household will have several appliances and electronics running simultaneously: air conditioners, water heaters, dishwashers, refrigerators, washers and dryers, as well as computers, entertainment systems, and other gadgets.
If your home has outdated electrical outlets, we can help you upgrade them so your property continues to remain compliant with current building codes. We can also install additional outlets if necessary; for example, if you are adding a tankless water heater to your home, you may need to install a dedicated outlet as well to accommodate your new unit.
Our Denver electricians are committed to your safety, comfort, and peace of mind. Every job is completed to meet and exceed the highest standards.
With the need for more technology in our homes and ongoing industry advancements, our electrical systems and outlets will also need to be updated in order to adapt to our changing demands.
Two-prong outlets are often found in older homes. These are no longer compliant with current code (unless there isn’t already a grounding wire present in the circuit that leads to the outlet).
We recommend upgrading outdated outlets to code-compliant three-prong outlets—these have a ground wire that will direct any power surges away from your home and into the ground. Three-prong outlets can help you avoid electrical shocks and provide increased safety in your home.
USB outlets look just like regular outlets, but with USB ports added in. Most outlets will feature two ports; you also have the choice to install outlets that are fully dedicated to USB connectivity. Before going forward with installation, we will determine if your home’s amperage can handle the demand of charging several devices from this type of outlet.
Other types of outlets we install include cable outlets, as well as tamper-resistant outlets (ideal for homes with small children).
AFCI breakers and GFCI outlets help you avoid potentially dangerous or fatal electrical situations.
AFCIs (arc-fault circuit interrupters) are not actually outlets, but breakers. In the event of arcing, they will cut power to the affected outlets before more serious damage or injury occurs.
GFCI (ground-fault circuit interrupter) outlets are designed to protect you from accidental electrocutions. For example, if you suddenly drop a hair dryer that’s running into a tub full of water, the GFCI outlet will sense a change in the current and trip—so if you instinctively reach in the water to retrieve your hair dryer, you will avoid an electrical shock.
We can help you install GFCI outlets in the required and recommended areas, including bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, pool areas, and garages.
