Our Albany Outlet & Switch Services
If your home is more than several decades old, there is a good chance your outlets and switches need an upgrade. At Crisafulli Bros. Plumbing & Heating Contractors, Inc., we can perform a comprehensive electrical inspection to determine what condition your receptacles are in, and if they are experiencing any problems. In some cases, a replacement may be necessary because they were not made to support modern electrical usage. In other cases, it is possible damage has occurred over time for one reason or another. From rats and mice chewing on your wiring to warping from a flood, our electricians can provide you with a modern, energy-efficient upgrade. If you notice any singing around your outlets and switches, they feel hot to the touch, or have sparked recently, give us a call right away, as these are signs that something is seriously wrong with your receptacle, which could potentially put you and your family members at risk.
Switch and outlet services we provide in Albany include:
- GFCI Outlet Upgrades: Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter, or GFCI outlets are an important safety feature of modern electrical systems. In a nutshell, they exist to stop unwanted currents, or “faults,” from damaging your equipment. When a sudden electrical current occurs, it can cause a fuse to blow or a fire to start. These outlets send that current to the ground, preventing short-circuiting and other malfunctions in your electrical system. They are similar to the circuit breakers in your electrical panel but provide an extra layer of protection for your appliances. If you are wondering whether you already have GFCI outlets, look to see if there are two buttons in the middle of your three-pronged receptacles. The top one is a reset button, allowing you to get your outlet working again if a short circuit occurs. The test button simply lets you check that your outlet is working by pushing it in. This in turn should cause the reset button to pop out.
- Dimmer Switch & Timer Installation: A lot of modern homeowners prefer to customize their lighting scheme and other elements of their electrical system. For this reason, dimmer switches and timers are very popular. A dimmer switch allows you to turn any given light up or down, so it doesn’t just have one setting. Say you occasionally want to dim the lights in your living room for when you are watching TV, but want to be able to turn them up again when you feel like reading. If this holds appeal for you, you may want to install a dimmer. Timers, on the other hand, allow you to turn lights and other switches off and on. That way, if you need to leave the house, or prefer to turn off certain switches before/after you go to bed, your outlet will do it automatically.
- Outlet Repairs: To reiterate, there are a ton of reasons outlets experience damage over time. Maybe you cracked the plastic on one of your outlets while moving furniture. Maybe someone stuck something in there they shouldn’t have, causing sparking to occur. Regardless, if you no longer like the way your outlets look, we can provide repairs that are stylish and functional. If you have small children, you may benefit from upgrading to an outlet with a protective covering. Or maybe you need an outlet moved higher, to make it more compatible with a certain piece of equipment. Again, whatever repair or replacement you’re looking for, our Albany outlet installers have got you covered.
