What Outlets are Best Suited for Your Household?
Our electricians can determine what type of outlets will work best for your needs. But in general, below are just 3 of the most widespread receptacles on the market:
- GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER (GFCI) terminals will protect you from electric shock by detecting an irregular current and preventing electricity from going to that outlet.
- ARC FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER (AFCI) terminals will protect your home from fires by detecting power arcs and halting them.
- SMART OUTLETS – These outlets are for smart devices in your home. From smart outdoor lighting to smart security, you can keep an eye on your home from anywhere in the world. Smart switches can connect to smart devices in your home and maximize convenience.
- USB OUTLETS – These outlets allow you to plug your smartphone or other devices into a USB charger in the wall. USB outlets let you charge electronic devices using a simple USB cord.
These are just a few of the more common types of outlets we install. You may not need all of these, or you may only need some. The important thing is to install the outlets that work for you and your family.
GFCI & AFCI Outlet Installation Can Save Your Life!
If you live in an older home, you probably lack the compliant, modern-day electrical outlets and receptacles with USB charging convenience. At Maitz Home Services, we offer quality outlets and receptacles to bring any old house back to the 21st Century.
GFCI outlets are mandatory in areas where there is an increased risk of shock due to electrical hazards, such as water or moisture nearby. For instance, GFCI receptacles are mandatory in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, pool areas, etc. The GFCI controls the electrical current and will shut off a circuit when it detects a current flowing where it shouldn’t be.
Consider adding new GFCI, AFCI, and USB charging outlets to your home. Call our team to discuss how we can help.
Charging your Electronics is a Breeze with USB Outlet Installation
It’s so nice to just plug your smartphone’s USB charger right into the electrical outlet, right? Well, now you can do even better. Now you can skip the charger and plug directly into a USB outlet using just your USB cord. These USB terminals are a must for any household where modern devices abound.
With homeowners now using more smart devices in their homes, such as smart cameras, doorbells, and speakers, it’s easy to keep an eye on your home from anywhere in the world.
