When Should You Replace Outlets & Switches

Some homeowners will often take outlets & switches for granted. After all, when they’re used so many times a day, it can be easy to forget just how inconvenient it can be when they stop working altogether. Not only will it prevent you from using the lights and appliances you rely so heavily upon, it can also make your home that much more unsafe.

Common Signs You Need Outlet & Switch Replacement

However, you must know when the time is right to replace, and Allgood Electric is here to help you pick up on the common signs. As far as we’re concerned, faster identification means quicker response time when it comes to calling us for assistance, so take note of any of these common signs:

  1. Two-Prong Outlets: If your home is still equipped with two-prong outlets, your home is still living in the past, as two-prong outlets are unable to keep pace with today’s demands. Three-prong outlets are much more adept at handling today’s electrical demands can last you much longer. If your home is still living forty to fifty years in the past, please call Allgood Electric today!
  2. Extensive Physical Damage: Are you noticing your current outlets & switches looking worse for wear? While physical damage doesn’t necessarily spell the end for your electrical fixtures, it can become a problem when damage proves extensive enough that it starts negatively impacting their performance.
  3. Flickering Lights: Your switches may be turned on, but your lights may still be flickering. It can be highly disruptive for life in your home. Replacing your switches is exactly what you need to ensure more consistent electricity so you can relax in your home without any interruption.
  4. Older Wiring. It’s incredibly dangerous to keep wiring in your home that is either older or frayed as you’re only risking the chance of electrical fire, power outage, or electrical shock. Outlet & switches will need to be replaced and you may want to consider home rewiring as well.
