Switches And Outlets

Switch Installations or Relocations

An switch installation is when a switch is added to a space on the wall that is empty with no existing switch device, while a relocation is when an existing switch is moved to a different location on the wall.

Condition of the walls and distance from the nearest power source will be the biggest cost factors when it comes to labor. Working on exposed walls without drywall or insulation takes less time and work for an electrician. Finished walls may require additional work and drywall repair, increasing the total project price. Consult Spotlight Energy for an exact estimate on moving a device.

Switch Replacements

A switch replacement is necessary when there is a need for a repair to an existing outlet on the wall. Replacements can also be necessary if the property owner has the need for a change in look, style or functionality of an outdated switch device.

If there is no need for a repair diagnosis, a simple replacement of a switch can be your most affordable switch install.

What We Handle

Types of Outlets

  • Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) Outlets – GFCIs protect people from electric shock by sensing abnormal current flow and stopping electricity from flowing to the outlet.
  • Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) Outlets –AFCIs protect homes from house fires by sensing power arcs and stopping them.
  • Smart Outlets – Homeowners are installing more smart devices at their homes all the time. From smart speakers to smart doorbells, it’s easy to keep an eye on your home from anywhere in the world. Smart outlets will connect to the other smart devices in your home to enhance security and convenience.
  • USB Outlets – Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just plug your smartphone’s USB charger right into the wall? Well now you can! USB outlets allow you to charge electronic devices using just a USB cord.
  • Switched Outlets – A switched outlet is half power receptacle, half power switch. Whatever you plug into the outlet can be turned on or off by flipping the switch. This option can be handy if you have a hard-to-reach device that you want to be able to turn on and off easily.
  • Tamper-Resistant (Child Proof) Outlets – Child-resistant outlets provide more reliable safety and protection than plastic plug covers. The tamper-resistant device cannot be removed from the outlet, offering small children better safeguarding from electrocution.
  • Two-Duplex Outlets – Instead of having just two plug spaces available, double it to four with these handy outlet upgrades. Two-duplex outlets are especially useful for home offices, kitchens counters, and entertainment centers.
  • 15-amp Outlets – The standard three-prong outlet is best suited for hallways, guest rooms, and other areas where you probably won’t have to plug many things in at once.
  • 20-amp Outlets – This beefed-up version of the standard outlet brings kitchen counter areas up to modern building codes. You can tell them apart by the horizontal slot coming off the 20-amp’s left wire plug. Your 20-amp outlets are best suited to high current kitchen appliances, like toaster ovens and blenders.
  • 30-amp and 40-amp Outlets – These are intended for use with items such as gas dryers and RV shore power outlets.
  • 50-amp Outlets – These are the biggest outlets installed at most residential buildings. The 50-amp outlets are required for large appliances such as ovens and electric dryers and at-times electric vehicle chargers.
