North Port Electrical Safety
The electrical and building codes for North Port and Florida are continually updated when potential safety risks are identified and new work methods are implemented. That means that even if your home was properly constructed, it may not be as safe as it could be if its electrical system hasn’t been kept up to date.
One of the biggest changes over the past few decades is how much electricity residential homes use. Gone are the days of gas-powered stoves and one or two lights. Now homes are loaded with microwaves, dishwashers, washing machines, clothes dryers, multiple high definition TVs, and all of the other latest gadgets. With all of these additional electrical needs, can you be sure your home’s electrical system can safely handle the load?
North Port Electrical Panel Upgrades
The electric panel is the brain of your home’s electrical system. Its job is to route power throughout your home while making sure your wires don’t become overloaded. In older North Port homes, the electrical panels were only designed to provide a few circuits for basic lighting plus special circuits for your kitchen appliances. If you find your circuit breakers keep tripping when you use your electronics or newer appliances, it may be time to upgrade your electrical panel to a higher capacity.
GFCI Outlets in North Port
GFCI stands for Ground Fault Interrupter Circuit. This is a special type of outlet that can instantly cut off power if changes in the electrical current are detected due to contact with water or the circuit being overloaded. This is a key safety measure that prevents fires, serious injuries, or even death from electrical mishaps. GFCI outlets are now required to be used in any outlet located in a bathroom or kitchen or within six feet of any water source. However, many older North Port Homes lack this important safety feature.
