Frequently Asked Questions

What is GFCI?
A GFCI, or ground fault circuit interrupter, is an outlet that quickly disperses an electrical current with leakage into the ground. In essence, it helps to protect you from electrical shock. GFCIs are primarily seen in bathrooms or kitchens where water is consistently present, but you can have them installed in all areas of your home.
Why Do My GFCI Outlets Keep Failing?
If your GFCI outlets seem to keep failing, then you might have wire connector issues.

Failed internal socket connections are fairly common in older outlets. For example, have you ever noticed how your phone charger easily slips out of an outlet? That often signifies a loose wire or a failing internal socket connection.

You could fix this by cutting off power at the breaker box, opening the outlet, and fastening the connections.

But if the outlet has this problem, it will eventually loosen up again. We recommend calling an electrician and ordering new parts for an outlet. As we’ve said, a fully-functioning GFCI outlet is the first line of defense to protect your family and home from electrical fire and shocks. This isn’t something to skimp out on.

Can I Do My Own Electrical Work In Colorado?
Colorado is a state with many regulations. The electrical code, for instance, can be found in Title 24 of the Colorado Revised Statutes. It states that only qualified residential electricians can work on wiring and other parts of an electrical system.
Why Should You NOT Do Your Own Electrical Work
There may be several reasons why you should not do your own electrical repairs and wiring, including the need to obtain a permit and insurance. Professional electrical repair ensures that someone else can take responsibility for any damage caused by faulty wiring. Additionally, if something goes wrong with the wiring, a residential electrician will know how to fix it properly.

Without proper training and equipment, you may not be able to complete the task successfully. In addition, a lack of resources can lead to frustration, injury, and expensive repairs when something goes wrong with your attempt to be an electrician.

Professional residential electricians have the experience and knowledge necessary to complete any task. You do not have to worry about paying for additional repairs or incurring fines from your municipality if they discover wiring problems.

Finally, hiring a residential electrician will ensure the fast completion of work. Professional electrical work means that your house is safe and up to code while ensuring it will not take longer than necessary. Taking too long would increase the costs associated with them completing the job.

Signs It’s Time To Call Your Local Electrician

While there are plenty of home projects suitable for do-it-yourself approaches, electrical work is rarely among them. Your home’s electrical system is highly complex, often difficult to access, and, most important of all, hazardous. It is important for your local electrician to keep you safe.

Today, most homes have about 220 to 240 volts coming in from the main power line, with an amperage of between 100 and 400 amps, depending on the house’s age and the electrical system’s nature. It takes only 0.01 amp to create a painful shock and 0.1 to 0.2 amps to kill a person.

  1. Age of Home
  2. Panel Deterioration
  3. Outlet Update
  4. Heat and Sparks
  5. Makeshift Insulation Check
  6. Insufficient Outlets
  7. Overly-Burdened Outlets
  8. Electrical Failure
