Upgrading Electrical Outlets
Electric outlets can need repair from time to time, and while repairs can often get outlets back up and running, sometimes an outlet replacement may be necessary. The good news is, new outlet models, can add convenience and safety to your home, including:
- USB - Combining traditional outlets with USB ports, you can get the most bang for your buck and still enjoy quality performance for all your electronics. You won’t have to search for a place to charge your phone.
- GFCI - GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupters) outlets are designed to protect you and your belongings from unexpected surges or electrical shorts. Keep your electronics safe!
- AFCI - An AFCI (arc-fault circuit interrupters) outlet prevents electrical arcs, limiting the risk of fire or electrical damage. This can help keep your home as safe as possible.
- TRR - TRR (tamper-resistant receptacles) outlets are an excellent choice for homes with small children. They are designed to keep small objects from being inserted into the outlet.

Signs Your Electrical Panel is Damaged
The electrical panel is the center of your home’s entire electrical system and it’s where the fuses and breakers live. The electrical panel is connected to the main power line that runs into your home which then runs to your home’s devices like lighting fixtures and outlets.
Sometimes, your electrical panel may need repair or replacement, too, but it’s a complex system, so it’s important to work with an experienced electrician. Some common signs of electrical panel problems can include:
- Certain areas of your home don’t get power
- Flickering lights
- Burning smell
- The breakers are constantly tripping
- Your energy costs keep increasing
- The panel is hot or even just warm
- Burn marks in or around the panel
Most of these problems can be solved with a panel repair, but sometimes the whole panel may need to be replaced. Upgrading to a stronger amp level for your electrical panel can reduce energy costs, increase the lifespan of your electronics, and increase their efficiency, too, saving you money.
