Time to Upgrade Your Outlets?
You probably haven’t given a second thought about your home’s outlets, but did you know you can keep your family safer by getting a GFCI outlet upgrade? Here are a few things to consider.
- GFCI outlets are best installed where electricity can come into contact with moisture
- GFCI outlets shut down when they experience a power imbalance and protect against shock and electrocution
- Most homes built before 1970 don’t have GFCI outlets
If you’re not sure what outlets you have or want a recommendation, call us and let us assess your home’s needs and see if you need a GFCI receptacle upgrade.
