Many homeowners don’t think much about their electrical outlets, but modern outlets are an excellent addition to your home. Newer heavy-duty appliances require special outlets, while areas of high moisture in your home need GFCI outlets. New outlet installation can help protect your home from fire and your family from electrocution. If you notice you or your family members getting suddenly shocked by your electrical outlets, you need an upgrade. Mr. Electric of Austin provides outlet installation services in Austin, TX.

Outlet Types We Install
Mr. Electric of Austin can help determine the best types of outlets for your home or business. The most common types of electrical outlets we install include the following:
- Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) Outlets – GFCIs are required anywhere in the home with moisture. They work to protect you from electric shock by switching off when they detect abnormal current flow.
- Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) Outlets – AFCIs sense power arcs and switch off to protect your home or loved ones. AFCI outlets switch off in instances like when a device overheats, an animal chews through a wire, or you drive a nail through a wire.
- USB Outlets – Many modern chargers use USBs instead of plugs. USB outlets make it easy to charge your appliances straight into the wall.
- Smart Outlets – Smart outlets connect the other smart devices in your home to help enhance convenience and security. You can program smart outlets to control everything from speakers to your lights.
- Switched Outlets – A switched outlet is a switch and a power receptacle. When you plug something into a switched outlet, you can easily turn it on or off with the flip of a switch.
- Child-resistant Outlet – A tamper-resistant outlet is a great way to boost the safety of your home instead of using plastic plug covers. The child-resistant device prevents anyone from inserting objects when unequal pressure is applied.
- 15-amp Outlets – A 15-amp outlet is your standard three-prong electrical outlet. We recommend 15-amp outlets in your guest rooms, hallways, or places without many appliances.
- 20-amp Outlets – A 20-amp outlet is the standard outlet with more power. It is required in kitchen counter areas to meet modern building codes and is best suited for modern kitchen appliances.
- 30-amp Outlets – A 30-amp outlet is used for larger appliances. We recommend installing 30-amp outlets with gas dryers.
- 50-amp Outlets – Ovens and electric dryers require a 50-amp outlet. This outlet is the largest outlet type used at most residential buildings.
