When Is It Time For A New Outlet or Switch?
Chances are if yours is an older Los Angeles home and it’s been awhile since an electrician has given your wiring a once over, the switches and outlets more than likely require an upgrade. However, it’s not merely the age of your home’s electrical system that matters, it’s how that system was originally installed and relays electricity today that also counts.
A switch/outlet upgrade is an immediate necessity if you have:
Builders grade outlets
Old wiring connected via “backstabbing”
Our fully-licensed master electricians can improve the safety and performance of your switch and outlets by ensuring the connectivity of the circuit no longer relies on running through the device or appliance being used. Let Express Electrical Services help you usher your switches and outlets into the modern electrical age.
Electric outlet installation may also be necessary if you are needing an outlet in a location where there is not one currently. You may also wish to explore the option of GFCI outlet installation in areas where moisture is present in order to eliminate the risk of electric shock. Finally, if your outlet is showing signs of not functioning correctly it is important to have an outlet repair or replacement performed as soon as possible.
TROUBLESHOOTING A FAULTY ELECTRICAL OUTLET
If you notice that your outlet is not supplying power like it should, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue. These steps include:
- If the outlet is switch controlled, start by making sure the switch is in the “on” position.
- If other outlets on the same wall are dead as well, it may mean that the entire circuit is dead. Go to your breaker panel, locate the circuit breaker that corresponds with the dead outlets, and flip it off then back on once.
- If you have a GFCI outlet anywhere in the circuit and it has been tripped, power to any outlet downstream of the GFCI outlet will be cut off. Locate the switch on your GFCI outlet and press the “on/off” button to reactivate it.
- If nothing has worked up to this point, there may be a loose wire in your outlet. With the power off, check to make sure that all the wires to the outlet are securely connected. If you don’t feel comfortable reconnecting the wires to your outlet, you can call a Los Angeles electrician to perform the repair.
If all the wires are connected properly and the outlet is still not functioning, you will need to have electric outlet installers replace the faulty outlet.
