What is the difference between a two-prong outlet and a three-prong outlet?

A two-prong outlet has two slots - one for the 'hot' wire and one for the 'neutral' wire. A three-prong outlet, on the other hand, has a third slot for a 'ground' wire, which provides an additional path for electrical current to return safely to the ground and reduces the risk of electrical shocks.

Can I replace a two-prong outlet with a three-prong outlet?

Yes, you can replace a two-prong outlet with a three-prong one for improved safety. However, this process should be done by a professional electrician to ensure it's done correctly and safely.

What is a GFCI outlet and where should they be installed?

A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlet is designed to protect against electrical shocks by sensing when an electrical current is not balanced between the 'hot' and 'neutral' slots. When an imbalance is detected, the GFCI outlet will quickly cut off power. They are required in areas where water and electricity can potentially mix, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and outdoor areas.

What is a dimmer switch and how does it work?

A dimmer switch controls the brightness of your light fixtures. By adjusting the voltage that reaches the fixture, it allows you to customize the level of light in your space for different activities or moods.

What is a three-way switch?

A three-way switch allows you to control a single light fixture from two different locations, like at the top and bottom of a staircase. They can be very convenient for larger rooms or spaces with multiple entry points.

What is a smart switch and what are its benefits?

A smart switch is a device that connects to your home's WiFi network, allowing you to control your lights remotely via a smartphone or voice-controlled device. Some of its benefits include scheduling capabilities, integration with other smart devices, and potential energy savings.

Why do my lights flicker when I use the switch?

Flickering lights can be a symptom of various issues. It could be a loose bulb, a problem with the switch, or a more serious issue with your home’s wiring. If you notice this problem persisting, it's best to consult with a professional electrician.

How often should outlets and switches be replaced?

Outlets and switches can last a long time – often several decades. However, if you notice any signs of wear and tear, like cracking or discoloration, or any symptoms of electrical issues, like sparking or frequent tripping of the circuit breaker, it's a good idea to have them inspected and possibly replaced by a professional electrician.


At First Choice Electric, we understand how frustrating it can be to search for a plug that's never where you need it. Whether you're setting up outlets or switches for an unfinished room or simply upgrading your current electrical access, we've got you covered. Our skilled team is highly proficient at installing both outlets and switches, often completing your larger projects in less than a day in most cases.
