Electrical Outlet Wiring
If you are running out of plugs to power electrical devices and home appliances, it may be time to install additional electrical outlets in your home. Powering large electronic devices and appliances by using power strips may cause overloading of your circuit breaker. It is important to get the help of an electrical professional when adding additional electrical outlets to ensure that your work stays up to code and your electrical safety is not compromised in your home.
Two Prong Outlet Upgrade
Two-prong outlets are common in older homes when grounding wires were not required in electrical devices. If your home still has two prong outlets, you will need to upgrade to newer three prong outlets, or GFCI outlets to ensure that your home is safe from electrical issues, and stays up to code. Because two prong outlets do not have a grounding wire, you may be using a cheater plug to plug in three prong plugs into the wall. These cheater plugs should not be used long term and can cause serious electrical damage to your home and electronic devices.
Ground fault circuit interrupter also knew as GFCI outlet offers top of the line electrical safety by stopping electrical connections at the outlet if an electrical issue is detected. GFCI outlets are mandatory in most building codes for rooms where water is present like kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. GFCI outlets will stop an electrical shock from occurring if an electrical device makes a connection with water or if an electrical device surges.
240-Volt Outlet Wiring
240-volt outlets come in three prongs and four prong varieties, and offer additional electricity through using two, 120-volt electrical wires for the power. 240-volt outlets are commonly needed for electric dryers, electric ovens, some refrigerators and freezers, electric water heaters, and various other large appliances.

Knob and Tube Replacement
Knob and tube wiring is an older method used in homes built before 1950 that does not use fully insulated wires or junction boxes. Knob and tube wiring is extremely dangerous and can cause electrical fires and other electrical issues if not replaced with a sustainable wiring system. Signs that your home has knob and tube wiring is if you still have two prong outlets instead of three prongs, you still have electric fuses instead of circuit breakers, and lights dim when you turn on other appliances.

Installing ceiling fans in your home is a great way to circulate air and cut down on your cooling costs during the summer. We offer ceiling fan installation and replacement for both new and existing ceiling electrical fixtures.
