Installation of Outlets & Switches

- Window air conditioner outlets
- Light switches
- Remote switches
If you live in an older home, you may not have Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter, or GFCI, outlets in your kitchen and bathrooms. These outlets are designed to disrupt the power to electrical outlets when heat or moisture is detected. This helps to prevent accidental electrocutions. In order to ensure the safety of your family, it is a good idea to install GFCI outlets in high-risk areas, such as kitchen, bathroom, and outdoor outlets.
How High Are Light Switches Off The Floor?
Light switches need to be placed at a height that is comfortable for everyone in the home when they are both sitting and standing. Since it's important to have consistency across buildings, the standard height for light switches is 48 inches off the floor. Depending on building codes, these heights can be different. A good example of when this height can be different is in kitchens. Kitchen light switches can be installed at varying heights to work with countertops.
Outlet & Switch Repair
Outlets and switches get the heaviest use of all electrical system components. The constant plugging and unplugging of appliances into outlets and turning lights on and off cause wear and tear over time. This can cause electrical connections to become loose. This is more than just inconvenient. Loose electrical connections can also become a fire hazard. We can send a qualified Elgin electrician to repair problem connections.
