Signs You Need Electrical Outlet Repair
Electrical problems are most obvious when something stops working. However, there are warning signs that indicate you should seek electrical outlet repair services before things break down. Knowing what to look for can be the difference between a small, fixable issue and a major problem like an electrical fire.

- Dead outlets can mean damaged wires or an overworked circuit.
- Burned or melted marks typically indicate serious short-circuiting and sparking.
- Cracked faceplates let in dirt and debris and are a fire hazard.

Protect Your Family From Electrocution in Your Home
GFCI outlets, ground-fault circuit interrupter outlets, are responsible for protecting people from electrocution. They are commonly used in areas of your home near water, like your bathroom and kitchen. If a GFCI outlet comes into contact with water, its system will cut the power for safety. To maintain those features, it is important to repair or replace your broken outlet.
Our team of professional technicians are trained to maintain electrical safety in the most vulnerable rooms of your home. We will treat your home with the utmost care to make sure your electrical is in good condition and up to code.
Maintain Your Electrical Systems to Avoid Electrical Fires
AFCI outlets, Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets, are responsible for cutting the power in an overheating situation that could potentially cause an electrical fire. Age and damage to the wiring can cause issues in these outlets that signal a need for electrical repair. It is good to routinely repair or replace your damaged or broken outlet.
Smart plugs are handy for controlling your lights and electrical devices from your phone. However, if they are used improperly, they can also start electrical fires. It is important to not use indoor plugs outdoors or plug in anything that is already not working properly.
Make Sure Your Electrical Wiring is Up To Code
If you just bought a new home that is a bit of an older build, it is a good idea to make sure that everything is up to code. After all, you don’t always know who wired what before you moved in. Our expert electricians can put your mind at ease by running diagnostics on your electrical system and recommend what you can change to improve it.
For commercial properties, checking for new code updates is also important. The National Electrical Code is updated every three years by the National Fire Protection Agency. A-Lumination Electric serves both residential and commercial properties in the Orlando area.
