Fall for Your Home’s Electrical Services – Part 2


As discussed in Part 1, winter brings the most electrical dangers so doing needed electrical work during the fall will help give you the peace of mind from living in a safer home. Part 2 will cover four more important fall electrical services for your home.







3) Bathroom and Kitchen GFCI





To ensure bathroom and kitchen safety, the NEC requires GFCI protection for every new bathroom, as well as for kitchen outlets that are six feet or less away from the sink. The addition of ground fault protection to existing circuits will improve safety in every bathroom and the kitchen in your home.





4) Outdoor Lighting





Installing safety and security features such as pathway lighting and motion sensor lighting will prevent accidents and help protect your home from intruders. Exterior lighting can also beautify your property by highlighting the beauty of your landscaping and home’s architecture during nighttime.





5) Outlets and Switches





Two-prong outlets are now considered unsafe, and they should be replaced with dependable and safer three-prong outlets. Over the years, outlets and switches can suffer wear and tear and may become faulty and/or hazardous. Those that are in poor condition should be replaced for safety.





6) Whole-Home Surge Protection





Power surges occur in only milliseconds, and they often go unnoticed. When they happen, your lights may flicker. An appliance such as microwave may also reset its digital clock, which indicates a loss of power. Over time, the little spikes by the current within your home’s electrical wiring can eventually damage the components of expensive electronic devices.  





The insurance claims filed for damage caused by power surges are in a similar category as lightning strikes. Altogether, they amount to more than a billion dollars in losses in the U.S., averaging insurance claims of $4,500. Fortunately, the installation of whole-home surge protection can help prevent damage from power surges and electrical storms.

Fall for Your Home’s Electrical Services – Part 1


When you put off replacing the outdated electrical features of your home, the greater the risk of danger as time passes. Faulty electrical components result in deadly hazards, including electrocution, fires, and power outages.

NEC 2020 Code Raises Standards for GFCI Protection


National Electrical Code (NEC) approved revisions to GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) protection, which significantly decreased the dangers of electrical hazards and shocks. Most notable for homeowners is the expansion of GFCI protection, improved basement protection, and increased outdoor outlet safety.







These GFCI updates of the NEC 2020 Code increase the electrical safety of homeowners and their families significantly. Work with a licensed electrician to install GFCI outlets wherever necessary at your home. Consider having a professional conduct an electrical safety inspection as well to keep your family safe.





Expansion of GFCI Protection





Due to several tragic electrocutions involving children, the 2017 Code was considered inadequate because it only applied to “125-volt, single-phase, 15- and 20- ampere receptacles.” Expanding GFCI protection, NEC 2020 states: “All 125-volt through 250-volt receptacles installed in the locations specified in 210.8(A) (1) through (11) and supplied by single-phase branch circuits rated 150 volts or less to ground shall have ground fault circuit interrupter protection for personnel.”





Improved Basement Protection





GFCI protection for dwellings with finished and unfinished basements was expanded. Typically, other areas of a home are better maintained than basements. In addition, basements are often damp and wet, and a moisture-filled environment is a conductor of electricity. The 2020 code updates help decrease or eliminate major factors of accidents such as water contact or leakage of electrical current.





Increased Outdoor Outlet Safety





The NEC 2020 update involves outdoor outlets powered by single-phase branch circuits that are rated 150 volts to ground or below at 50 amps or below. The significance of the update is that the GFCI requirement goes beyond outdoor receptacle outlets by including all outlets. Thus, the revision covers all hard-wired equipment outdoors.
