Signs You Need New Outlets Installed

Have you ever felt like you just don’t have enough electrical outlets in certain rooms of your Springfield, Illinois, home? Or maybe the ones you have just aren’t in convenient locations. Though it might at first seem like a small issue, not having electricity where you want it can make redecorating or rearranging your home a real hassle and limit where you are can put your electrical devices.

GFCI Outlet Installation

Not all Springfield, Illinois, household outlets are created equally. Ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets work to prevent electric shocks. They detect when electricity flows out and starts to enter the body and cut off power almost instantaneously. GFCI outlets increase the safety of outlets and are a great option to consider in homes with small children.

The National Electrical Code specifies GFCI outlet installation by licensed Springfield, Illinois, electricians in certain areas throughout the home.

  • All bathroom outlets must be GFCI
  • In kitchens, any outlet within six feet of a sink or serving countertop spaces must be GFCI
  • In laundry rooms, outlets within six feet of a sink’s outside edge must be GFCI

If any of your outlets aren’t up to code, or you would like to increase the safety of your outlets and install a GFCI outlet in place of an existing one, give the electricians at MB Heating & Cooling a call today.

Outdoor Waterproof Outlet Installation

Per the National Electric Code, almost all outdoor outlets must be GFCI. Weatherproof covers need to be installed to protect the outdoor GFCI from moisture. Outdoor waterproof outlet installation helps Springfield, IL homeowners protect against moisture intrusion while still having the ability to use the outlet when it’s raining. If your weatherproof cover broke off of your outlet, or if you need a new waterproof outlet altogether, give the experts at MB Heating & Cooling a call today.
