Outlet Repairs

Outlets are used very frequently, so it doesn't take long for them to experience some serious wear and tear. If any outlets in your Baton Rouge home become loose, you might notice that anything that's plugged into them will flicker, or they may not get any power at all. These needs to be repaired or replaced immediately to keep your home both functional and safe.

You should also probably replace any two-pronged outlets in your home, and you should make sure that you have GFCI or AFCI outlets installed where they are necessary.


Our Baton Rouge electricians can help you install, repair, and maintain the following light switches:

  • Single pole switch: used to switch lights on from only one location.
  • 2-3 way electrical switch: used to turn lights on and off from 2 different locations.
  • 3-4 way electric switch: used to switch lights on and off from several locations.
  • Time clocks and photo cells: used to turn lights on automatically.

We can also work with dimmers and other specialty switches, and we'll always guarantee your satisfaction with our services.

GFCI Outlets

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets are safety receptacles installed around water sources to protect the homeowner from electrical sock. They work by monitoring the difference between hot and neutral wires, and they will instantly break the circuit if an imbalance is detected. These devices can prevent serious injuries in the event of a malfunction with any piece of electrical equipment.

Our Baton Rouge electricians can work with you to install GFCI outlets wherever they're needed to help you keep your home as safe as possible.
