You may see a need for more outlets in conveniently located areas around your home so that you’re able to plug in everything you need to without fear of overloading your circuits and putting you in danger.

The best solution is to give Dayton Services a call so one our well-trained professional electricians can help assess your power needs and install an outlet or switch that will fulfill those needs.
Your outlets may require repairs if:
- Wires are “backstabbed”

- Panels or receptacles are bent/loose
- Switches or outlets are unresponsive
When it comes to electrical wiring, it’s best to avoid DIY techniques and instead have any repairs or installations done by an electrician who is an expert in the field. Dayton Services has exactly what you need and will you save you the hassle and danger of trying to do your own repairs.
Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupters are outlets that can detect any sort of irregularities in power and shut off the supply before the circuit overloads or catches fire. They are useful in all areas of your home, but particularly in:
- Bathrooms-With the use of appliances like hair dryers so close to areas of water, GFCI outlets can prevent electrical shock.
- Kitchens-Large appliances often used in the kitchen require a lot of electricity and increase the risk of overloading the circuits.
- Outdoors-Wires can become frayed over time, exposing them to the elements and making them hazardous.
