Installation Of New Outlets
When moving into a new home, renovating, or redecorating, it’s essential not to overlook the electrical outlets in the given space. One of these finer details to consider is placing electrical outlets in more convenient locations.
For instance, you might decide you want to place your TV on the wall that’s opposite from where your power outlet is right now. Or, when renovating your kitchen, you may notice that the current number of power outlets is not enough.
The best solution for your safety and comfort is to hire qualified electricians to install the suitable receptacles where you need them - and make sure they are up to the Canadian electrical code.
Our power outlets installation service includes:
1. GFCI And ARC Fault Protection And Resetting - GFCI outlets are required wherever an outlet is close to a water source. They’re used in laundry rooms, garages, kitchens, and bathrooms. AFCI outlets protect against arcing, which could cause a fire. These outlets are required if you’re renovating your home or adding a new room.

2. Child Proofing Outlets - Tamper-resistant receptacles are designed to protect children from the hazards of inserting foreign objects into power outlets. These outlets feature a mechanism inside that blocks access to contacts except for two-prong plugs, eliminating the risk of electrical shock.
