Household and commercial buildings these days will have multiple appliances, electrical equipment, and devices running at once. If you have an older electrical system with outdated or faulty wiring, you may run into trouble if you are trying to install or operate heavy-duty appliances or equipment.
Older properties are most vulnerable to electrical problems. This is why, if you live in an older home or manage an older commercial building, it’s always best to have a full electrical inspection carried out before new appliances are installed. This is particularly important if you are planning on setting up heavy-duty systems such as a home backup generator, a tankless water heater, or even an electric vehicle charging station.
Our experts at Paschal Air, Plumbing & Electric are here to help with all of your electrical needs, including outlet installations and replacements. We will provide you with the right type of outlets for your NWA property and make sure the installation is completed safely to meet code.
Properties that were built before the 1960s may still have outdated electrical systems installed. This means you may still have older, two-prong outlets. These outlets are missing the third grounding wire that is designed to protect your electrical equipment from sudden power surges; grounding wires can also help protect you from getting accidentally shocked.
Although older two-prong outlets are not a code violation, they can still pose safety risks to your home or building. If you still have two-prong outlets installed, we recommend upgrading to three-prong outlets or GFCI outlets to ensure your long-term safety and peace of mind.
Your property may not need to be rewired to have these upgrades carried out. Our experts will take the time to inspect your electrical system before conducting the upgrade and make sure your new outlet installation is completed safely and efficiently.
GFCI outlets are required in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, garages, pool areas, and other areas where there is a faucet installed. These outlets are used to keep you safe from accidental electrocutions. For example, if your hair dryer falls into a tub that’s filled with water, the GFCI outlet will immediately trip with the change in current and prevent you or your electrical system from getting harmed.
Give us a call today to discuss your needs and learn more about your options for installing a GFCI outlet for your Northwest Arkansas home or commercial property.
Our experts can help you install a variety of outlets to fit your particular needs, including:
