Safe, Quality Electrical Outlet Services in Huntsville
Electrical outlets are a necessary component of all residential and commercial electrical systems. Our plugged-in society has made us so dependent on electrical outlets that it’s almost impossible to complete our daily tasks without them. But because outlets have become so commonplace, we often don’t give them a second thought–until there is a problem.
For reliable electrical outlet installation and repair in Huntsville, Alabama, turn to Blake Brothers for help! Our licensed, certified electricians are always ready to provide you with prompt and quality service–24/7!
Guaranteed Safe Electrical Outlet Services
Electrical outlets provide electricity to all the gadgets and electronics that keep your home or business running, working nonstop without you ever having to think about them. Still, there will be times when issues arise with your electrical outlets.
Your home’s power outlets may be either too few or too old to support the appliances and electronic gadgets you use.
Whether you need an existing outlet fixed or additional outlets for a newly built room in your house, you can always count on the expert electricians at Blake Brothers for safe and quality electrical outlet installation and repair in the Huntsville area.
If you live in an older home, we can also help you update your outlets and electrical system as a whole for more comfort and security, as well as energy efficiency! Many electronics require grounded three-prong outlets, which many older homes still need to install. Installing three-prong outlets does take a little more time as we have to ground the outlets for safety.
Does Your Electrical Outlet Need Repair?
Homeowners often notice problems with their electrical outlets, but they consider minor issues unimportant or just part of how things work. However, problematic or deteriorating outlets are more than just an inconvenience; they pose real electric shock and fire risks.
It can be difficult to determine when to call for professional outlet repair services, especially if your electrical outlets are still functional. Here are some signs that can help you decide whether or not professional assistance is required.
- The Outlet Is Not Working.
If your outlet is no longer supplying electricity to your electronics, then it’s time to call your local electrician to repair it.
- The Outlet Is Loose.
Your plugs should fit snugly into your outlets and not fall out unless you purposely remove them. If your plugs keep falling out, contact an electrician to inspect the issue in detail and perform the necessary repairs.
- Your Appliances Keep Flickering On and Off.
When you plug a device into an outlet, does it keep turning on and off intermittently? This could indicate that your outlet’s wiring is overloaded and can no longer supply the required power.
Ignoring electrical outlet issues can result in a number of potentially serious problems and pose a greater risk of electrocution or fire. Furthermore, faulty outlets may damage the appliances plugged into them, leading to costly repairs or replacements. It is in your best interest to contact the experienced electricians at Blake Brothers if you notice anything wrong or you have concerns about the safety of your electrical outlets in Huntsville.
Is It Time to Replace Your Electrical Outlets?
Just like the rest of your home, outlets eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Investing in new outlets is a low-cost way to modernize your home, increase the safety and efficiency of your electrical system, and add features that make your life easier.
You should consider upgrading your old electrical outlets if you notice one or more of the following signs:
- Lack three-pronged outlets
- Sparks every time you plug in a device/appliance
- Burning smells while using the outlet
- Brownish/discolored outlets
- Warm or hot outlets when in use
- Loose sockets that cause plugs to fall out
You should pay more attention to old and damaged outlets. Faulty outlets can cause irreparable damage to your appliances and electrical devices and even put your entire home at risk.
If your outlets are over ten years old or showing noticeable signs of deterioration, call Blake Brothers and have them checked as soon as possible.
Our team of qualified electricians can thoroughly inspect your electrical system, and if necessary, replace your electrical outlets before they go bad and cause greater damage.
Choosing the Right Electrical Outlet
Most homeowners pick out electrical outlets based on personal preference, but it’s also important to consider the location and likely use when choosing an electrical outlet for your home.
These are three types of electrical outlets commonly used in residential spaces:
- GFCI or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter Outlets
GFCI outlets are made to shut off power immediately if they sense danger, like when water gets into the outlet. This is to keep people from getting electrocuted or shocked. These outlets are an excellent choice for any room in your house, especially for rooms with water or where young children play. They are expected and at times even required in kitchens, bathrooms, basements, garages, and outdoor spaces.
- AFCI or Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupter Outlets
Electrical arcs can start electrical fires. AFCI outlets have sensors that can tell the difference between a harmless arc and an arc that poses a fire risk and are designed to trip the circuit to prevent the latter from happening. This is another type of outlet that’s perfect for use in every room of your house.
- USB Outlets
Connectivity is more vital than ever in the digital age. This is especially important for people whose jobs require constant access to the internet and fully charged mobile devices. USB outlets have USB ports built into them. They’re handy in study rooms, entertainment rooms, home offices, and bedrooms–especially those occupied by students.
Before every electrical outlet installation, Blake Brothers’ electrical team will discuss your electrical needs and requirements with you, so we can help you pick the correct type of outlet for every space in your home. With decades of industry experience, you can be confident in our ability to safely install electrical outlets and ensure everything is up to code.
If you are worried about arcs and surges, consider installing a whole-home surge protector. Surge protectors can protect your electric system, appliances, and electronics from shock and damage.
