Protect Against Fires and Electrocution With GFCI and AFCI Outlets

Your electrical outlets deliver power to your appliances and devices, but they can do so much more. Outlets can also make your home safer by protecting against electrocution and fires.

Faulty electrical systems are a leading cause of residential fires in Orlando, so make your home safer with new outlets. Don’t put up with any malarky! Choose Service Minds Mister Sparky for electrical outlet installation in Orlando, FL.

Prevent Electrocution With GFCI Outlets

Ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets offer protection from electrocution caused by electrical leakage. Once installed, the outlets monitor the current flowing through the circuit and traveling back via the return path. If electricity leaks during the trip, these outlets cut off the power supply to avoid any electrocution incident.

This is especially important when accessing power around water. Salt and minerals in water conduct electricity, and electrified water can be deadly. With that in mind, the National Electric Code (NEC) requires GFCI outlets in new homes and renovations.

The NEC set the first GFCI outlet requirement in 1968 and added updates through 2005. Now, you must install GFCI outlets in the following locations:

  • Outdoors, including pool lighting
  • Bathrooms
  • Garages
  • Kitchens
  • Crawl spaces
  • Unfinished basements
  • Wet bar sinks
  • Laundry sinks
  • Utility sinks

Around 80% of Orlando homes were built before the last update in 2005. That means there’s a good chance you don’t have the protection you need. Improve your home’s safety by calling Orlando’s on-time electrician today.

Prevent Fires With AFCI Outlets

Malfunctions can cause electricity to jump instead of flow between connections. Referred to as arcing, this creates excessive heat, which could lead to a fire. Service Minds Mister Sparky installs AFCI outlets that automatically cut the power when arcing is detected.

At a minimum, it’s a good idea to install AFCI outlets in all the bedrooms in your house. An electrical fire can be deadly if you’re asleep, so this protection is vital. You can also add AFCI outlets to gathering spaces, closets, and other areas away from water.
