Because there is no such thing as constant, uninterrupted adult supervision, child proof outlets protect your children and those of invited guests, preventing injuries and liability. Also called tamper-proof receptacles, these electrical outlets are so effective that as of 2008 the National Electrical Code (NEC) has required their installation in all new homes.
Sufficient electrical capacity is necessary for the proper function of electrical appliances or devices on a circuit without tripping a breaker or blowing a fuse. In some cases, circuit breaker replacement may remedy overload issues without the need for an electrical panel upgrade, effectively handling electrical needs and preventing electrical fires.
Chances are your company can’t function without its computers. To avoid tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses, Mr. Electric can install a circuit breaker that only controls your computer systems. That means that other office electrical appliances can’t take down computers when switched on.

GFCI outlets are used in areas like the kitchen, bathroom or garage where the risk of electrical shock is greater. They can be identified by the “test” and “reset” buttons located on the receptacle. These outlets help protect you from electrical hazards by monitoring the amount of electricity flowing in a circuit and tripping the circuit if an imbalance is detected. Once detected, the outlet stops the flow of electricity.
