Whether you're planning home improvements beyond DIY projects or have safety concerns about building code standards, our highly skilled service providers can install quality outlets and other fixtures, including:
The Arlington IN BOX™ recessed outlet uses space within the wall rather than protruding out of it. Installing this practical outlet has several benefits, including:
Allowing furniture to sit closer to the wall.
Reducing safety hazards.
Making it easier to hide cables.
Recessed TV Outlet Box
Replace unsightly cords with a recessed TV outlet box that offers surge protection. Your living room will look more organized, and you can keep your TV and entertainment stand close to the wall while using your TV's coaxial cable, ethernet cord and other cables. This configuration is ideal for wall-mounted flatscreens. You can also plug in routers and landline phones without visible cords causing safety concerns.
Revisions of the National Electrical Code (NEC) in 2008 and 2011 required homes to have tamper-resistant outlets to prevent accidental electrocution and electrical fires. These outlets shut off the electrical slots using spring-loaded shutters and preventing direct contact with electricity. While tamper-resistant outlets' primary benefit is keeping children safe, homes without children are also required to install this receptacle.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI)
Ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) are installed in any area with an increased risk of shock. These settings include any wet or damp area like a kitchen counter or a bathroom. CGFIs monitor the electrical current and turn the circuit off when they detect an imbalance to reduce the risk of injury and keep outlets safe.
