Installing Electrical Outlets Where You Need Them

Do you tend to frequently use extension cords or hunt for free outlets because your home’s electrical outlets aren’t where you need them? You might think of electrical outlets as permanent fixtures, but a highly trained and licensed electrical professional can install new outlets for safer and more convenient power use. An electrician can place an outlet by your favorite reading chair to power a lamp or behind your entertainment center to support your television, stereo, and gaming system’s electrical demands. Even if your home doesn't require more electrical outlets, you may want to install them if your current outlets are old or show signs of damage. Outlets tripping frequently or sparking whenever you plug devices into them may pose a safety hazard. More importantly, homeowners need to replace any two-pronged outlets because electrical professionals consider them unsafe compared to three-pronged, grounded outlets. Fortunately, Mr. Electric of Edmonton offers electrical outlet installation services in Edmonton and Sherwood Park, AB. You can educate yourself on the various types of electrical outlets our technicians will install for you! 

We Help You Choose Right Electrical Outlet 

After deciding to install new electrical outlets around your home, your next step is to decide which outlet types you want our technicians to install. The wide selection of outlets available to homeowners might surprise you. Some outlets feature high-tech add-ons to make power use more convenient, while other outlets have advanced safety features to protect your family and devices. You may want to schedule a consultation with one of Mr. Electric of Edmonton’s friendly and licensed electricians. We have spent decades helping Edmonton and Sherwood Park, AB homeowners understand the outlet installation process. Some outlet types our electricians regularly install include the following: 

  • Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) Outlets – Installing GFCI outlets can prevent electrocution, especially in wet areas. These outlets monitor themselves to detect abnormal current flow and cut off the power before a shock occurs.  
  • Arc Fault Current Interrupter (AFCI) Outlets – AFCIs look a lot like GFCIs with “Reset” and “Test” buttons on the receptacles. However, AFCI outlets detect electricity arcs, typically from exposed wiring, and break the power circuit before a fire starts.  
  • Smart Outlets – You can connect smart outlets to other smart devices around your home, such as doorbell cameras and security systems. Many smart outlets can help throttle your home’s electricity consumption caused by devices not in use.  
  • Switched Outlets – These outlets are half electrical outlets and half switch. You can connect your devices to a switched outlet and control them by flipping a switch.  
  • USB Outlets – Don’t let USB adapters clutter up your outlets. Adding an outlet featuring dedicated USB charging ports can liberate your outlets and make them available for other devices.  
  • Tamper-Resistant Outlets – If you have children in the home, we recommend considering these childproof outlets to prevent electrical shock and other hazards. These outlets offer more protection than placing plastic plugs in your current outlets.
  • Two-Duplex Outlets – Two plugs might not be enough. You can upgrade your outlets from two-duplex options to four places, letting you plug in more devices and appliances. 
  • 15-Amp Outlets – These three-pronged outlets are standard home outlets and are ideal in domestic areas where people are less likely to plug in and run multiple high-power-drawing devices simultaneously.
  • 20-Amp Outlets – You can spot a 20-amp outlet in your home by looking at an outlet’s left plug and seeing a horizontal slit. These outlets provide more power to support electronics like power tools and kitchen appliances.
  • 30-Amp Outlets – These high-powered outlets are often used specifically to power heavy-duty appliances like furnaces, water heaters, and RVs.
  • 50-Amp Outlets – 50-amp outlets are the most powerful outlets electrical professionals can install in residential properties. Homeowners use them for major appliances like ovens, air conditioners, and clothes dryers.
