Upgrading Your Electrical Outlets
Whether your home is older or newer, you could benefit from upgrading your outlets. Here are a few modern kinds of outlets you should consider installing.
- AFCI Outlets: Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets protect against electrical fires by preventing electricity from jumping between wires.
- GFCI Outlets: Ground fault Circuit Interrupter outlets protect against electrocutions from water by halting the flow of electricity when a short circuit or ground fault is detected.
- USB outlets: Since most modern devices use USB cords for power, some modern outlets have integrated USB ports into themselves. It’s convenient because you don’t need to have an adapter to power your devices.

Electrical Panel Repair vs. Replacement
An electrical panel that keeps tripping and leaving you in the dark needs to be checked out by a professional. Here are a few tips on whether you’ll need to repair or replace your electric panel.
- Flickering lights: Dimming or flickering lights while using household appliances point to overloaded circuits or outdated wiring. This is common in older homes and, in most cases, requires a breaker panel replacement.
- Circuit breaker fails: Though circuit breakers work automatically by interrupting the flow of electricity when they detect overloaded or short circuits, they occasionally fail. When this happens, you don’t usually require a complete panel replacement. Having an electrician replace the malfunctioning breaker should suffice.
- A burning smell: If your electrical panel feels warm to the touch or you notice a burning smell, this could be the result of a wiring issue. Although a repair may fix the problem, the best solution would be to replace your electrical panel.
