What is a receptacle?2023-07-25T11:18:48+00:00

Some refer to a receptacle as a plug. It is a device used to connect corded equipment. There are many different configurations of receptacles. The most common is the 15-20 amp duplex receptacles found around your business or home. They are used for computers, lamps, TVs microwaves, toasters, washing machines, dryers and many other devices.

What is a GFCI receptacle?2023-07-25T11:22:13+00:00

It’s the plug with buttons. A GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) is a receptacle that continually checks for a ground fault in the connected devices. You should have GFCI receptacles in the bathroom, garage, kitchen, outside receptacles, around pools and detached buildings/garages and many more locations. The purpose of a GFCI is to protect people from electrical shock and should be tested regularly .

What is an AFCI circuit breaker?2023-07-25T11:21:56+00:00

AFCI (arc fault circuit interrupter) detects dangerous arcing in an electrical circuit. There is normal arcing in electrical circuits. A vacuum motor arcs as it spins. A light switch will arc as it breaks the circuit. AFCI protection distinguishes between normal and dangerous arcing and shuts the circuit off then dangerous arcing is detected. AFCI circuits should be tested for proper operation regularly. AFCI protection is currently required in all sleeping areas and my expand to others areas as the N.E.C. (National Electric Code) has revisions every three years.

What is a circuit breaker?2023-07-25T11:21:24+00:00

A circuit breaker limits the amount of current flow on an electrical circuit. The most common circuit breakers are 15-20 amp circuit breakers. When an overcorrect condition is detected the break ‘trips”. The handle will move to the center position. When this happens check the circuit to determine what caused the circuit breaker to “trip”. To restore power the breaker must be turned to the off position then to the on position.

Can I perform my own electric repair/installation2023-07-25T11:25:15+00:00

Wiring is no hobby. You can research the internet and find countless stories of people electrocuted. There is more to it then running a wire from point “A” to “B”. Watching a YouTube video to wire something is not a good idea. Each device has a specific power requirement and each circuit has a purpose. What is the circuit used for? Does it need to be in conduit? What type of conduit is needed? What size wire is needed? What type of wire is needed? How do I know what size wire to use? How do I know what type of wire is needed? What size Conduit? Do I need a disconnect? What size circuit breaker is needed? is GFCI or AFCI protection required? Is the circuit in a hazardous location? Do I need a permit?
