Types of outlets
Not all outlets are the same. At Electricians Ottawa we are happy to assess your needs and make
the appropriate recommendations.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) – This senses abnormal current flow and will immediately stop the electricity flow.
Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) – This senses power arcs and stops them immediately,preventing fires.
Smart Outlets – These will connect you with your smart appliances, doorbells, speakers, or other devices. This means you have access to security no matter where you are.
USB Outlets – USB outlets let you plug your electronic devices directly into the wall for recharging.
Switched Outlets – This is a hybrid power receptacle and power switch. Whatever is plugged into the outlet can be controlled by a switch. This is particularly handy if you have something that is difficult to reach to plug in or out.
Tamper-Resistant Outlets – Child proofing should be more than just plastic covers. This tamper-resistant device helps protect even the most adept and curious children from being harmed.
15-amp Outlets – This is a standard three-prong (grounded) outlet for areas that won’t need much use.
20-amp Outlets – This is designed for appliances like toaster ovens and blenders. They are distinguished by a horizontal slot from the 20-amp’s left wire plug.
30-amp Outlets – These are for higher powered appliances like gas dryers and RV shore power outlets.
50-amp Outlets – These are the largest residential outlets and are used for ovens and electric dryers.
