Los Angeles Outlet Installation
Repairing & Replacing Broken Outlets
Have you been experiencing issues with your outlets or have you been told
that it is time to replace your outlets? If so, the Los Angeles outlet
installation experts at Brentwood Electrical Contractors can help. Many homes, especially
those which were built several decades ago and have not been
upgraded, are still fitted with older outlets.
Although many of these outlets do not experience issues, some have trouble
keeping up with the demand for newer electrical appliances. At
Brentwood Electrical Contractors, our Los Angeles electricians can assist you with the repair and installation
of new outlets.
Signs Your Outlets Need To Be Repaired
The most obvious sign of a need for outlet repair is when you plug something
in and it simply won't work. However, there may be lesser signs which
may indicate a need for an electrical inspection and
repair. It is important that you never attempt to open an outlet yourself, as
it can be extremely dangerous without the proper training and tools.
A Few Signs Your Outlets May Need To Be Repaired Include:
- Sparks fly when you plug something in
- Your devices aren't working at full capacity
- Plugs fall out of your outlets easily
- Outlets are difficult to put plugs in or out of
Why Do Plugs Fall Out of Outlets?
There are two possible reasons your outlets won’t hold a plug: the
plug’s prongs are misshapen, or the outlet’s contact points
are damaged. Try multiple plugs; if they all fall out of the outlet, then
it’s likely the contact points. Outlet contact points are designed
to hold plugs in place, but they do wear out over time. However, they
also go bad due to bad wiring, which give off heat that damage the contacts
until they’re useless.
Repairing loose outlets is an issue of safety, not just convenience. If
you do have bad wiring or sparking inside your outlets, a straightforward
replacement will allow our Brentwood electricians to take a look at what’s
going on in your electrical system to solve the problem for good.
