Here’s Why You Should Consider GFCI Outlet Upgrades
If you have an older home, chances are you’re using the same outlets that came with the home. The problem is many of these outlets aren’t GFCI or ground fault circuit interrupters. GFCI outlets are safer because they shut off when they detect a power imbalance which can save lives. Here are places to consider a GFCI receptacle upgrade.
- Pool area
If you have areas where electricity and moisture mix, you need to upgrade your outlets.
Are You Due for an Electrical Service Panel Upgrade?
If your home was made in the 70s or prior, there’s a good chance you’re still relying on fuses to regulate your home’s electricity. With today’s power demands, the fuse box isn’t just inconvenient, it can also be dangerous with the risk of fire. Consider these facts:
- Circuit breakers respond more quickly than fuses
- Circuit breakers last longer and are more reliable than fuses
- Circuit breakers can be reset instead of having to be replaced as fuses do
Also, keep in mind that older electrical service panels can’t keep up with modern power demands. Call us and let us assess your home’s electrical needs.
