These are the standard type of outlets found in most homes. They are used for most regular 2- and 3-pronged plugs.
Instead of two standard receptacles, this type of outlet usually includes a light switch.
GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets provide extra security by quickly shutting off power when there is a short circuit or ground fault. GFCI outlets are usually found near water sources in your home.
AFCI (arc fault circuit interrupter) outlets protect against arcing, which is when electricity jumps from one wire to another (resulting in a fire). These types of outlets are commonly installed as the first outlet on a branch circuit.
These outlets are usually installed in areas that can easily be exposed to water, such as a patio, deck or pool area. This device is made of water-resistant material which extends the life of the device.
These outlets include one or more USB ports built in, which allows devices to be recharged via a USB cable.
A smart outlet allows you to turn on or off an appliance via a smartphone. (Note: These outlets typically require a smart home hub for use.)
Once we diagnose your electrical issue, you'll get a price to fix your wiring before any work begins—so there are no surprises.
Tell us what equipment you'd like installed, and we'll send an installation specialist to determine how much it will cost—for free.
Most outlets cannot be repaired, so you'll likely need a new one installed. (Click the next section to see the price range). If the outlet isn’t replaced soon enough it may cause wiring issues, which will lead to a more expensive electrical repair.
If old or damaged wiring needs to be replaced to accommodate the new outlet, then the cost will be greater.t.
Some outlets are more expensive than others because they require more labor to install. For example, a GFCI outlet is generally more expensive than a standard 15-amp duplex outlet.
To accommodate the new outlet, the electrician may need to replace some of the wiring if it's outdated. Replacing old wiring increases the price of the project.
It's generally less expensive to replace an outlet than to install one in a different location. (Installing an outlet in a new location requires more labor, which raises the cost.)
Schedule your appointment. If you schedule online, we'll call you as soon as we can to confirm your appointment.
One of our electricians will arrive at your home and inspect your old outlet, or the location where you want a new one installed. Based on the scope of the project, our electrician will give you upfront pricing on the cost to repair or install the outlet(s).
Once you sign off on the repair/install quote, you can sit back and relax while we do all the hard work. Repairing or installing an outlet generally takes 30 to 45 minutes.
After the job is complete, we'll make sure you have an opportunity to speak with us about how everything went. Our first priority is your comfort and satisfaction. So, if any part of the job wasn’t handled to your standards, just let us know and we’ll make it right.
