Installation of Outlets & Switches

Do you need a new electrical outlet, hook up for a window air conditioner, or a dimmer switch installed? Amy Home Services has more than 35 years of experience handling all types of indoor and outdoor outlets and switches.

Our licensed Elgin electricians install a wide variety of electrical outlets and switches, including:

  • Outdoor outlets
  • GFCI outlets
  • Electrical outlets
  • Floor outlets
  • Window air conditioner outlets
  • Light switches
  • Dimmers
  • 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.

Are Non Working Outlets A Fire Hazard?

Electrical outlets that are ungrounded can be a potential fire hazard, especially in the event of a power surge. You can tell if your outlet is grounded or ungrounded by looking at the number of prongs. A three prong outlet is grounded because the third bottom prong as as the ground slot. Older homes may not have grounded outlets, so home owners should contact a professional electrician for an upgrade.

Outlets are not the only vulnerable part of an electrical system that could be a potential fire hazard. Faulty wiring, outdated lighting fixtures, broken surge protectors, or damaged electrical panels can all be a risk of an electrical fire. So, routine electrical maintenance and inspections are necessary to ensure your home's electrical system is kept up to date and safe to use.

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.
