What causes outlets and switches to need repair?

The need for outlet repair comes from people switching lights on and plugging in/unplugging lots of appliances each week. Electrical outlets and switches cause the most wear and tear on electrical systems. In fact, each time a device gets plugged in or unplugged, outlet connections in homes get increasingly weaker. This is problematic because loose electrical connections are not only a nuisance when a device stops working, they also may become a fire hazard.

Ground Fault Receptacles (GFCI's) Purpose

Electric panels deliver energy through wires to be accessed through electrical outlets. This flow of energy can be extremely dangerous if it comes in contact with heat or moisture. Wiring circuit interruptions can halt power supply to electrical outlets and other items, or lead to fires and shock. This is where ground fault receptacles or ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI's) come into play.

Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI's) Purpose

AFCI stands for Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter. While the GFCI is designed to protect against shock and electrocution, AFCI receptacles / outlets are designed to protect against fires caused by rapid escalations of electric power known as "electrical arcs". Electrical arcs can cause overheating and electrical currents to spill out from their intended pathways which can lead to fires. Electrical arcs are one of the main causes of electrical fires, and electrical fires are the main causes of property fires period, so the importance of AFCIs cannot be overstated.
