Should You Get a GFCI Receptacle Upgrade?
If your home is over 50 years old, chances are it still has the original outlets. While old outlets are ok, you can better protect your family by upgrading to GFCI outlets and here’s why. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets reduce the risk of shock or electrocution when electricity and water are present and can save you or your children’s lives. Here are the places to use them:
- In the bathroom
- The kitchen
- Around the pool
- In the laundry room
- In the basement
If you’re not sure if you need GFCI outlet upgrades, call us and let us inspect your home today.
Are You Still Using Fuses? Here’s Why You Should Upgrade
Many older homes use fuse boxes to regulate electricity, and while they served their purpose well back then, today’s homes with power hungry appliances require more. If your home still has an old fuse box, consider an electrical service panel replacement to a breaker panel. Flipping a tripped breaker is easier than replacing a fuse, and a new electrical panel upgrade can give your home more power to make better use of your appliances, electronics, and gadgets.
