Switches & Outlets
Worth the Switch!
We understand the hassle that comes with a malfunctioning outlet or switch. Not only is it inconvenient, but can be extremely dangerous. It can cause severe shocks and burns or even create a risk of fire.
For this reason, we highly recommend fixing any broken outlets or switches right away and investing in electrical safety protection. The most common causes of electrical fires are faulty wiring, short circuits, and overloaded outlets.
Consider having a licensed and highly trained Winstar electrician conduct a whole-home electrical safety inspection. We will check for properly working switches and outlets, detect future problems, and address current ones.
We highly recommend installing Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupters, Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupters, and tamper-proof outlets.
Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupters – arc-faulting occurs for a variety of reason including stapled wiring, worn insulation, loose connections, accidental piercing, worn-out cords, and natural exposure. AFCI outlets protect you and your family from dangerous unwanted electrical arcing. To keep your family safe and your home up to code, install AFCI outlets in all of your bedrooms, living/dining rooms, sunrooms, closets, and hallways.
Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupters – ground-faulting occurs in areas where water or moisture is present. GFCI outlets protect against electrocution by shutting off power to your outlet when it detects the presence of moisture. It is required by The National Electrical Code to have GFCI outlets installed in all bathrooms, garages, kitchens, and outdoor outlets.
Tamper-Resistant Outlets – these receptacle are necessary for any homes with young children. A spring mechanism snaps shut whenever a foreign object is inserted. The metal prongs of a plug are like the key that opens the outlet. The NEC now requires these outlets in new and renovated homes.
