Upgrading switches & outlets
Add style to your room
Today's homes utilize sophisticated lighting schemes. Grouped into three categories: general, task, and accent—lighting when thoughtfully placed—can add comfort, beauty, and drama to a house. All-Tech Electric can install ceiling fans, chandeliers, wall-mounted fixtures, sconces, recessed lighting or track lighting. We can enhance the work areas of your home with additional task lighting in kitchens, utility areas or offices, add accent lighting to create drama in your home by spotlighting focal areas, artwork and architectural details.
Upgrading outlets is a simple way to enhance your home. A wide range of designs to complement any décor is available with coordinating wall plates and switches. Beyond traditional models are tamper resistant styles to protect young children, weather resistant models to help prevent corrosion and combination outlets with switches built-in, or energy saving automatic LED light sensors.
Protection Against Shock and Electrocution
A ground fault happens whenever electricity escapes the confines of the wiring in an appliance or light fixture and takes a shortcut to the ground. If that shortcut is through a person, the results can be deadly. About 200 people in the U.S. alone die of ground faults each year, accounting for two-thirds of all electrocutions occurring in homes.
To prevent these accidents a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlet monitors the amount of current flowing and trips the circuit if it senses more electricity coming into the outlet then it's sending out. Building codes require that a GFCI outlet to be used in all wet locations such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundry areas and in exterior receptacles.
