Why Upgrade to a GFCI Outlet?
Protect yourself and your family members when you have a professional install GFCI outlets in your home. GFCI outlets help prevent electrical shocks, damage to electrical equipment, and the occurrence of electrical fires. They also save you money, as out-of-date outlets are less efficient than GFCIs. If you have existing GFCI outlets, consider having them replaced every 7-10 years. Orange Electric provides outlet repair services and GFCI outlet installation in Davis County.

Common Residential Electrical Code Violations
With information being so easily accessible nowadays, we’ve seen an increase in DIY electrical projects over recent years. From tasks as routine as GFCI receptacle installation to more complex electrical service panel or electrical outlet repair attempts, homeowners are sometimes tempted to tackle electrical jobs on their own to save money — and maybe even their pride. But electrical repairs, replacements, and installations probably shouldn’t be on your to-do list. Only a certified electrician has the knowledge and experience to properly perform electrical tasks, while guaranteeing safety and accuracy, which is of extreme importance when dealing with electricity.
Homeowners that attempt to solve electrical issues on their own or try to install upgrades to their electrical systems often end up with residential electrical code violations that can be irreversible and highly problematic. Code violations can be accompanied by a host of unpleasant consequences, including safety concerns, a decrease in your home’s resale value, failed safety inspections, and fines. The following common electrical code violations (and more) can be avoided when you hire a professional to provide the electrical services you require.
- Lack of tamper-resistant receptacles
- Having the wrong circuit breaker installed, or failing to install circuit breakers
- Light switches do not have neutral wires connected
- Overloaded circuits, or not enough outlets installed to meet power demands
- Leaving outdoor receptacles exposed and uncovered
- Old, outdated wiring
- Improperly configured electrical panels
