How Does a Socket Work?
AC electrical sockets allow electricity to flow via alternating current to any piece of equipment plugged into it.
Sockets vary by the following criteria:
- Current rating
- Voltage rating
- Type of connector
Your GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) Outlet
A GFCI is typically installed in outdoor areas or in damp areas in your home. Your GFCI will detect when a current is flowing through an unintentional path, such as through a person or water. It will then shut off the electric power circuit that is providing electricity to that outlet. These types of outlets are used to prevent electric shock, which can cause bodily harm or some fires. Your Katy, TX electrician can safely and efficiently install one of these in your home.
Electric Vehicle Chargers
When you made the switch to a clean electric vehicle (EV), you need a power source to keep up with your car’s demand. Having a dedicated EV charger installed on your property can help you make the most out of your car.
Our team will install Electric Vehicle Service Equipment (EVSE) that fits your needs. A general rule of thumb is having EVSE that can handle higher amperage will provide more mile per charge, per hour. That is, 30-amp capacity equipment will add 30 miles per hour of charge. However. these higher amp units also require a dedicated circuit breaker so they do not disrupt the normal flow of electricity in your home.
