What Are The Different Types Of Electrical Outlets?

  1. As mentioned earlier, the standard electrical outlet is a 15 amp three prong outlet. Three prong means it is grounded.
  2. 125 volt 20 amp outlet is typically used for two power kitchen appliances that require more amperage
  3. 250 V 20A outlets that include heavy load appliances, and maybe even power air-conditioners.
  4. Another outlet type includes tamper resistant receptacles. An internal power source can be utilized to restrict the entry of a foreign object. This is found in many of the codes of Virginia.
  5. GHIC electrical outlets are often referred to as a ground fault circuit interupter. When remodeling a basement crawl space, these GHIC electrical outlets are required by not only the electrical code of Virginia but the NFPA 70 (National Electric Code) better known as NEC
  6. AFCI electrical outlets are typically used in areas such as laundry rooms, bedrooms, and for appliances that tend to overheat. Little's Quality Contracting is familiar with these types of electrical outlets and how to not only repair and install this type of electrical outlet.
  7. Switched electrical outlets are all the rage when it comes to the green community. We install switched electrical outlets in many Virginia homes because of their energy efficiency.
