While an electrical outlet may seem like a basic device, it’s best installed by a licensed electrician. An electrician can ensure your outlet is installed according to code, walk you through any additional requirements of your project, and pull any needed permits from your local authority.
It’s usually a simple job to replace an existing outlet with an equivalent. But if you’re adding a new circuit to your electrical panel or installing a single outlet for a specific use, you should consider the wiring and specific code requirements involved, such as GFCI protection, dedicated circuits, amperage requirements, and the distance between outlets.
Additionally, the installation of a new outlet is the perfect time to consider using a receptacle with special features, such as swiveling outlets, tamper-resistance, USB charging ports, or a weather-proof cover. Your electrician can present different options and help you choose the best solution for your project.
