Difference Between an Installation and a Replacement.

The more popular electrical services that are regularly requested are ceiling fans,  lighting fixtures, switches, and outlets installation and/or replacements. When you get a new ceiling fan,  lighting fixture, switch, or outlet you usually request an installation price because it is a new install. However, 99% of the time it is a replacement. If you already have or had another ceiling fan,  lighting fixtures switch, or outlet there, it already has an electrical box so there is no need to run wires and install a new electrical box. An installation costs 2 to 3 times as much as a replacement so please make sure you choose the correct one.

Electrician electrical boxThe electrician uses an Electrical Box to house electrical wire connections and properly support fixtures. Also called outlet box or junction box.

if you need to install or replace additional switches

We categorize outlets in four different price groups, and their cost varies depending on the switches you choose. 

 

Combination Outlets – There are many combination outlets on the market for child safety and convenience. No matter the combination type the price for installation or replacement is based on the five types of outlets we discussed below. 

Tamper Resistant Receptacle Outlets (TRR) – The ultimate in child safety and required since 2008 by the National Electrical Code, TRRs feature built-in safety shutters that block foreign objects from being inserted into the outlet. The outlet will usually be marked TR or TRR.

USB Outlets – With modern outlets you get the opportunity to have a wall socket with one or more USB ports built in. This Allows you to leave regular outlets free for use by other appliances while recharging other devices direct from USB cable. 

Switched Outlets 

It integrates a socket and a connected switch and controls the power to a connected appliance without removing the plug from the outlet.

It is extremely important that you check the power specifications when you are purchasing or changing an appliance. Some appliances like electric dryers, ovens, or fireplaces may require even more power requiring 30A or even 50A outlets. 

Regardless of the outlet you choose, keep in mind when replacing one type of outlet for another type of outlet, you may incur an installation cost and not a replacement cost. This is because the size of the gauge of your wires on the circuit may be too small to handle the power or you may need a bigger breaker. 

Standard Outlets 110 to 130 Volts

15-Amp Outlet | 14 Gauge wire | 15 Amp Breaker

Notably, the cheapest outlets can be a two-prong ungrounded connection with two long connection slots commonly found in older houses, or a three-prong with a ground pin which helps prevent electric shock and as an extra vertical slot.

 

20A Outlet  | 12 or 10 Gauge wire | 20 Amp Breaker

These electrical outlets are for bigger appliances such as dishwashers, space heaters, or kitchen gadgets that require more power. You can tell them apart from the 15A small horizontal slot alongside the vertical ground slot.

Installation $334/outlet                 Replacement $134/up-to 2, $84/additional

Addon Installation  $250.50/outlet    Addon Replacement  $67 1st outlet, $50.25/additional

Heavy Duty Outlets 125 to 250 Volts

30Amp to 50Amp Outlets  | 10 to 6 Gauge wire | 30Amp to 50Amp Breaker

For Large appliances like dryers or air conditioners, you may need to install a heavy-duty outlet. When replacing an outlet that was previously a 125 Volt Outlet with a 250-volt outlet, a double-pole circuit breaker must be installed in your main panel by an electrician. The charge will then be for an outlet installation, NOT an outlet replacement.

Safety Outlets

AFCI Outlets

The main purpose of AFCI is to protect against fire caused by heat created through arcing. Arcing is caused by damage to your electrical wiring by rodents, pounding nails in your wall to hang painting, overheating appliances or other  faults that loosens contact points in your electrical system. This causes the electricity to jump between connections creating massive heat that leads to an electrical fire. When arcing occurs, the Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) outlets detect it, and the integrated breaker deactivates the outlet. 

 

GFCI Outlets 

A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlet is marked with Test and Reset buttons and protects you from severe life threatening shocks from electrical appliances, dryers and gadgets.  They are placed in bathroom, kitchen, laundry and basement areas that are moist or near water. GFCI outlets constantly track the current flow and trip (or cut off power) upon sensing a spike or leap in the current. The interrupter circuit immediately kicks in the moment it detects a dangerous power surge. For example, if you accidentally drop a live hair dryer into your bathtub when it’s full of water the GFCI would kick in and cut off the power.

Installation $334/outlet                 Replacement $160/up-to 2, $84/additional

Addon Installation  $250.50/outlet    Addon Replacement  $84 1st outlet, $63/additional

If you do not currently have an AFCI or GFCI breaker installed in your circuit panel, you should also consider upgrading to an AFCI or GFCI breaker for full protection because AFCI or GFCI outlets only protect downstream from the circuit branch they are installed.

Energy Efficient Outlets

Smart Outlets

 

Modern, innovative smart outlets feature built-in mechanisms for monitoring power usage. They can also switch on or off following a program or schedule. For things you want to run on a set schedule, like lawn sprinklers or drip coffee makers, smart outlets can be great. They can also prevent power leakage and help make your home more energy-efficient.

Many smart outlets also feature remote control using Wi-Fi, Zigbee, or Zwave protocols. You can operate and track these remotely with your phone or through voice assistants. Hands-free operation is also possible through Google Home and Amazon Echo smart speakers.
