Computers, dishwashers, TVs, refrigerators, stoves, and microwaves all require a dedicated plug in the modern home. But as we plug in more and more appliances, our electrical systems can start to lose their effectiveness. Many homes in Riverview, Apollo Beach, and Sun City, FL weren't built with modern electricity needs in mind. Especially if your home tops 40 years old, it's likely time for a professional home wiring update. Luckily, Mr. Electric of Riverview is here to help. Our team is experienced with all types of circuits and outlets, and we can make the necessary updates in no time. Count on us to help you avoid tripped breakers, electric shock, and other hazards.
You Can't Find Any GFCIs
Homes are required to have GFCI receptacles in high-moisture areas of the home. If you don't see any of these outlets labeled with "TEST" and "RESET" buttons, you likely need wiring upgrades. Thankfully, installing new GFCIs is inexpensive and straightforward. Let us know if you're missing GFCIs in the following areas:
- Laundry rooms
- Utility rooms
- Pool areas
- Outside the home
You Have No AFCIsSimilar to GFCIs, AFCIs are crucial safety measures that prevent fire. These receptacles act as circuit breakers and will automatically disconnect in the event of a dangerous arc. They're mandated in bedrooms across the United States, and some regions require them throughout the home. No AFCIs? Our electricians can address the problem.
There Are Still Two-Pronged Outlets
If you live in an older home, you may notice more two-pronged outlets than three-pronged ones. These outlets were standard decades ago, but today, they're known as a huge safety hazard. They lack proper grounding and often allow excess electricity to surge into your devices (even if you have a surge protector). Beyond damage to your devices, two-pronged outlets are also more likely to cause painful electric shocks. Let our team know if you need to upgrade, and we'll find the proper three-pronged replacements.
Appliances Aren't Running at Full Power
Many modern appliances call for special 240-volt outlets to get adequate power. Nevertheless, not all homes are outfitted with the proper four-pronged receptacles. If you need improved outlets for heavy-duty appliances, be sure to talk to our electricians.
