AC power plugs and sockets are devices that allow electrically operated equipment to be connected to the primary alternating current (AC) power supply in a building. Plugs and sockets for household portable appliances started becoming available in the 1880s. Today there are approximately 20 types in common use around the world, and many obsolete socket types are still found in older buildings.
To reduce the risk of users accidentally touching energized conductors and thereby experiencing electric shock, plug and socket systems often incorporate safety features in addition to the recessed slots or holes of the socket. These may include plugs with insulated sleeves, recessed sockets and sockets designed to accept only compatible plugs inserted in the correct orientation.
AC Socket Replacement.
No matter the type of receptacle, whether it’s a conventional AC duplex socket, a 240-volt socket, a GFCI socket or a child proof socket, over time AC sockets can become damaged or broken. Without AC socket replacement, the damaged socket can cause an electrical fire or electrical shock. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission electrical AC sockets are involved in 5,300 fires annually and they claim around 40 lives.
AC sockets can deteriorate from frequent use. As a result, plugs can begin to fit loosely into the electrical sockets. AC sockets can overheat and become potential fire hazards if not replaced. In addition, AC sockets may have poor internal connections or faulty wiring. This can also cause the socket to overheat and emit sparks. Give us a call to replace your damaged, deteriorated or malfunctioning AC sockets to guard against electrical fires and electrocution.
