Why Should I Replace My Old Electrical Outlets?
After years of use, electrical outlets can become worn and damaged. The contacts inside the outlet can loosen from years of prolonged use, leading to the outlet overheating and becoming a fire hazard. According the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 5,300 house fires occur each year due to faulty or overloaded outlets. Your outlets could also pose a fire hazard if they are hot to the touch due to old, worn wiring. If you notice your outlets are cracked, hot, have emitted sparks, or appear burned, call an electrician immediately.

Electrical Outlet Installation and Replacement Services
Don’t rely on extension cords or power strips to power your electrical devices. At Top Notch, we’ll install new outlets where they make the most sense, and will inspect old outlets and replace any that show signs of damage. We install:
- 120-volt outlets
- 240-volt outlets
- Tamper resistant outlets
- Floor, rotating, and recessed outlets
- GFCI outlets
GFCI (Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlets are a great choice when replacing old outlets. A GFCI outlet constantly monitors the amount of current flowing through the receptacle. If it notices an imbalance, the outlet automatically trips the circuit to avoid a fire or electrocution risk. These outlets are especially handy in the kitchen, outdoors, or in the bathroom where water is likely to enter an appliance or outlet. After the circuit is tripped, a simple push of the reset button will activate the outlet again. If you have a building permit for new construction for a new addition or other extensive remodeling project, you must install GFCI outlets to stay up to code.
