What Determines Electrical Outlet Installation Costs?
There are a number of factors that affect the cost of an electrical outlet installation. They include:
Childproofing. Childproofing is a feature you can add to your electrical outlets to keep the children in your home safe. It will add to your installation expense, because technicians will install tamper-resistant receptacles, which are a bit more expensive than normal receptacles. That said, your home will be more safe if you opt to install this feature.
Location. The location of the outlet you wish to have installed can also be a cost determinate. If the desired outlet location is in a difficult-to-access location, that can add-on to installation cost. In addition, installing floor outlets rather than wall outlets can add to a homeowner’s installation expense, as it can be more time consuming to install floor or ceiling outlets.
Type of Outlet. There are a few different variables that can describe the type of electrical outlet you are installing. Those variables can include; whether the outlet is 2-prong or 3-prong, whether it is a specialty outlet, and/or and the amount of amperage and voltage the outlet provides.
Wiring. If there is not existing wiring that can be used for your new outlets, new wiring will have to be installed and will likely add to the installation cost.
Regardless of your home electrical outlet needs, Mattex expert electricians will determine your needs before any work is done, so you can make the best decision possible for your family and your Champaign, Illinois home.
What Determines Light Switch Installation Costs?
Light switch installation can be an easy task for a professional electrician. However, it is often still best to have a professionally licensed electrician at Mattex install your light switches to ensure they are up to code and safe for your home. Here are some cost factors involved in determining what the price will be for your light switches:
Labor. Light switch installation labor costs can vary largely depending on wiring. If usable, existing wiring exists, labor costs are likely to be lower than if there isn’t.
Type of Light Switch. The type of light switch(s) installed will likely be the key price determinant for any light switch installation. The more fixtures a switch controls or the more switches there are for a single fixture, the more expensive those switches will be to install.
Wiring. Wiring costs can vary widely on an electrical installation process. If complicated wiring is too difficult to access, switch locations are required, and wiring installation cost will be high. If existing wiring to the switch locations exists, then the wiring cost is likely to be lower.
No matter your Champaign, Illinois home’s light switch needs, Mattex light switch installation technicians will determine what’s best for you and your home before any work begins.
When to Replace or Repair your Outlets or Switches
Determining whether to replace or repair the outlets or switches in your home can be difficult. You may want to do so for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you need a repair for safety reasons or perhaps you want a replacement for functionality reasons. Here are a few telltale reasons to keep an eye out for and consider when it comes to replacing or repairing your outlets or switches:
Cracked Plates. In the event that the plate protecting your outlet or switches cracked, you should have it repaired by Mattex immediately. A cracked plate could lead to exposed wiring which can pose a safety hazard and be dangerous for those in your household.
Discoloration. If you have noticed streaks or general discoloration on the plate protecting your outlets or switches, you need a repair from a licensed electrician at Mattex. Discoloration is a sign of power surges or overheating which can lead to a fire.
Relocation. Do the locations of your outlets or switches in your home no longer make sense for the space? If so, it’s probably time to relocate them. This can be a consuming process, but the experts from Mattex have the know-how and ability to relocate them to make the space work best for your home.
Sparks or Smoke. If outlets or switches in your home ever spark or begin to smoke, you should stop using them immediately and contact a professional electrician. A professional electrician can safely repair the issue before any further damage can be done to your home electrical system.
Deciding whether or not it is time to repair or replace your home’s outlets or switches is an important decision to make as a homeowner. Thankfully, the experts from Mattex can help you through every step of the process to help you make the best decision for your Champaign, Illinois home.
