Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Outlet

Outlets provide the essential connection between electrical devices and the power supply. However, they can pose safety risks if not properly maintained.

Over time, outlets may wear out, become damaged, or show signs of deterioration, potentially leading to electrical hazards. Here are some signs that you may need to replace your outlet:

  • Loose or wobbly plugs: If your plugs no longer fit securely into the outlet and seem to wobble or fall out easily, it means the outlet needs replacement.
  • Frequent sparking or overheating: If you notice sparks when you plug in a device or the outlet feels excessively hot to the touch, it’s a sign of a problem.
  • Burn marks or discoloration: Discoloration or scorch marks around the outlet, especially on the cover plate, suggest electrical issues and shouldn’t be ignored.
  • Intermittent power supply: If your devices frequently lose power or flicker when plugged in, it may be due to a faulty outlet.
  • Cracked or damaged outlet cover: A damaged cover can expose the wiring, making it susceptible to damage or accidents.
  • Outdated two-prong outlets: If your home still has two-prong outlets and you need three-prong outlets for modern devices, it’s essential to upgrade for safety and functionality.

Regularly inspect your outlets for these signs to ensure your home’s electrical system remains safe and functional.

GFCI Outlet Installation

The National Electrical Code requires GFCI outlets in wet or damp locations, such as bathrooms and kitchens. GFCIs are designed to protect against electrical shock by interrupting household circuits when there’s a difference between the currents in the hot and neutral wires.

Consider additional outlets for:

  • Convenience: In today’s tech-savvy world, having enough outlets in the right places is essential for daily convenience.
  • Safety: Overloading existing outlets with power strips and extension cords can pose safety hazards. Adding new outlets helps distribute the electrical load more safely.
  • Energy efficiency: By strategically placing outlets, you can optimize the use of your devices and appliances. This can lead to energy savings over time.
  • Modernization: Older homes may have outdated or unsafe electrical systems. Adding new outlets allows you to bring your home’s electrical infrastructure up to current safety standards.

USB Outlet Installation

USB electrical outlets are designed for devices that access power through their USB ports, such as tablets, smartphones, laptops, and desktop computers.

A major benefit of USB outlets is convenience: Installing USB outlets reduces how many plugs you have to carry around. Another advantage of installing USB ports is that USB outlets are universal for international travelers.

Homeowner Tips & Resources

Is my home safe from electrical hazards?

Electrical hazards that can lead to serious injury often go undetected because electricity runs silently behind the scenes.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there were 400 accidental electrocutions in 2000. Many of these involve items you unconsciously use every day. It’s important to recognize hazards before they cause a serious injury, disability, or fatality.

Am I at risk of being electrocuted?

Electrocution occurs when the body provides the most direct pathway for electrical current to reach the ground. Electrocution can be prevented if a ground fault circuit interrupter is installed in the home. A GFCI detects any change in electrical current and abruptly switches off the power before electrocution can occur.

Is your home protected with GFCIs?

GFCIs a great way to protect you from potential electrocution and the National Electrical Code requires GFCI protection for most outdoor receptacles, bathroom receptacle circuits, garage wall outlets, kitchen receptacles, and all receptacles in crawl spaces and unfinished basements.

Is my home at risk of electrical fire?

The CPSC estimates that over 165,000 fires are caused annually by faulty electrical wiring. Arcing faults are one of the major reasons these electrical fires are started. When an arc occurs, it generates high temperatures that often exceed 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit. This high-intensity heat may ignite surrounding material like wood or insulation and quickly spread fire throughout your home.

An arcing fault is a dangerous electrical problem caused by damaged, overheated, or stressed wiring, cables, or appliances. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development reports an absence of AFCIs as one of the three primary residential hazards associated with burns and fire-related injuries.

AFCIs continuously monitor electrical current flow and determine when there is unwanted arcing. Once unwanted arcing is detected, the AFCI trips the internal contacts and immediately turns off the circuit, reducing the chances of an electrical fire. Arc fault circuit interrupters are among the easiest and most cost-effective home electrical safety devices you can have installed.

What causes arc faults?

  • Pinched or pierced insulation on construction wires or cords
  • Wires punctured by nails or screws when hanging things like pictures
  • A chair leg sitting on an extension cord
  • Cracked insulation on wire or cords from age, heat, chemical erosion, or stress
  • Overheated wires and cords caused by overloading home electrical circuits
  • Loose or improper connections
  • Frayed or ruptured extension cords or appliance cords
  • Electrical appliances that have damaged electrical parts
  • Moisture or contaminants between conductors of different voltage
  • Electrical wire insulation that rodents have chewed on
