Switch and Outlets Uprades
Consumers who need a Miami electrician today should call B & I Electric for inspections of your power outlets, any short circuits, wiring emergencies and power losses!
Switches are used to turn the power on and off. Outlets, or receptacles, are usually mounted on a wall or floor to supply electricity through a cord and plug to appliances, lamps, TV, etc. These are the key points in our electrical systems that give us our first line of control to our electrical use and are critical connection points. With time and use, these connections can become loose, creating potential hazards.
- Check to make sure outlets and switch plates are not unusually hot to the touch. If they are, immediately unplug cords from these outlets and do not use the switches. Have a qualified electrician check the wiring as soon as possible.
- Look for discoloration as another indication of potentially dangerous heat buildup at these connectors.
- Check that all outlet and switch cover plates are in good condition so that no wiring is exposed. Replace any missing, cracked or broken cover plates.
- Be sure to use safety caps with unused outlets.
Of all the repairs that you may do around your home or business, the most potentially devastating mistakes are in faulty electrical wiring!
Countless fires are caused by poor wiring techniques, substandard materials, faulty extension cords, or defective electrical appliances. The trouble and the trap is the apparent simplicity of electrical work. Small mistakes can cause quick and severe consequences. Poor wiring techniques can cause shock hazards that may not be evident until an accident happens.
Over Current Protection and Wiring Sizing
Building Wiring and Switches come in a variety of types and sizes. The importance of choosing the appropriate wiring or device cannot be overstated. Wiring that is not sized appropriately can be detrimental to the appliance it operates.
In today's high technological environments, undersized wiring can lead to intolerable voltage fluctuations that can harm or impede the equipment or its application. Similarly, safety switches may operate motors, equipment, computers, lighting, processes, and a multitude of other applications. When a switch is not installed in the exact appropriate manner for its design, electrical codes, and the installation application, the switch itself can affect the life of the equipment attached and even create a hazard. Whether your connection needs are simple or complex, B. & I. Electric as an Electrical Company will find the best solution to provide a value added installation for your needs.
