Signs You Need an Electrical Outlet Upgrade

They Aren’t GFCI Outlets

All outlets in residential homes and commercial buildings should have GFCI (ground-fault circuit interrupter) outlets. If you don’t you need to call an electrician immediately.

Your Outlets are Sparking

If your electrical outlets are sparking when you plug in an appliance or device, it needs to be replaced. You also might have overloaded your outlet with too many plug-ins.
