Nipper Electric offers a variety of electrical outlet styles and upgrades. While it may look like they’re all the same at first glance, each type of outlets serves a different purpose. From specialized upgrades like LED Night Lights and Recessed Outlets, to new options like USB Outlets, we’ve got the options you need to power your appliances.
LED Night Lights: Rather than plugging in a nightlight, these special outlets have the light built in. With a twenty year life expectancy, they’ll give your children that sense of safety they need for as long as they need it.
USB Outlets: From cell phones to handheld gaming consoles, more and more devices are making use of USB ports in charging. Modern homes are often equipped with USB outlets directly, allowing you to bypass the need for a charging block, and the cost of making such an upgrade is likely lower than you think.
Recessed Outlets: If you’ve got plugs sticking out everywhere, you might want a recessed outlet to help tidy out. These specially designed outlets are set further into the wall, keeping the plugs hidden and safe from tripping feet.
AFCI (Arc-Fault Circuit Interruptors): Part of the latest in safety technology, an AFCI detects when your wiring is overheating and shuts down the power to that outlet before serious damage can occur.
Child Proof Outlets: More reliable than sticking a plastic stopper into the socket, child proof outlets are an excellent choice for anyone with children or who can expect children around the home often. The built in barrier on these outlets prevents children form touching the outlet directly or sticking objects into the socket.
GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters): A GFCI monitors the flow of electricity in a circuit and, if any sort of interruption or problem occurs, shuts that outlet down. It’s an inexpensive upgrade that greatly raises the safety level of your home, so consider preventing electrical hazards by having one installed today.
