Electrical Shocks Are Not Normal!
Some of us have experienced a slight electrical shock when turning a device on or off, and while they’re usually not painful, it can become a dangerous situation if not dealt with quickly.
Most electrical shocks happen because of faulty wiring within the device or appliance. Calling your local residential electrician for specific troubleshooting is the best way to diagnose the cause of the shocks and correct it so it doesn’t turn into a tragic situation later.
GFCI, AFCI, USB & Smart Outlets: Which Should You Install?
Our electricians can determine what type of wall plugs will work best for your needs. But in general, below are the 3 outlets you’ll find in almost every home:
- GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER (GFCI) outlets will protect you from electric shock by detecting an irregular current and preventing electricity from going to that terminal.
- ARC FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER (AFCI) outlets will protect your home from fires by detecting power arcs and halting them.
- SMART OUTLETS – These are terminals for smart devices in your home. From smart lighting to smart security, you can check on your home from anywhere in the world.
- USB OUTLETS – These outlets allow you to plug your smartphone or other smart devices into a USB conduit in the wall. USB outlets let you charge electronic devices using a simple USB cord.
These are just a few of the more common conduits, switches, and receptacles. You may not need all of these, or you may need just a few. The important thing is to install the outlets for your needs.
GFCI & AFCI Outlet Installations For Your Safety
If you live in an older home, you probably lack the proper, modern-day electrical outlets with USB charging convenience. At Maitz Home Services, we offer quality conduits to bring any old house back to the 21st Century.
GFCI receptacles are required in areas where there is an increased risk of shock due to electrical hazards, such as water. For instance, GFCI receptacles are mandatory in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, pool area, etc. The GFCI controls the electrical current and will turn off an electrical circuit when it detects a current flowing where it shouldn’t.
