Switch & Outlet Services in Portland
Providing Reliable Services Throughout Clackamas, Multnomah & Washington Counties
Of all of the many various components of your electrical system, there may not be any that are more commonly-used or important than your many various outlets and switches found throughout your home. Outlets are what allow you to plug your devices in, giving them access to electricity to operate. Switches make it so these outlets work or not, making it simple to turn them on or off. We use both of these devices so commonly every single day that we more than likely just don’t even think about them.
However, they’re not immune from wear and tear, and over time they may need to be repaired or replaced. At A-TEMP Heating, Cooling & Electrical, we offer a full range of switch and outlet services in Portland so that you don’t have to stress about a worn-out socket or intermittent switch. We care for your home, and that’s why each of our services is designed to achieve your complete satisfaction with quality work and professional-grade components. Whether it’s replacing every outlet in your home, or simply getting a broken light switch to work, you can depend on us to get to the root of the problem and repair it properly so everything works as it should.

While some devices are wired into our home like ceiling fans and light fixtures, the overwhelming majority of our devices need to be plugged into an electrical outlet in order to operate. This means it’s important to not only have working outlets, but many of them. Outlet placement is also crucial—having an outlet in an unreachable place does no good, nor does it do you any good to not have an outlet where you need one.
Today, modern outlets are so much more than they used to be. While the premise is essentially the same, you can even purchase outlets which have additional features, such as LED lighting for night visibility or a USB port for phone charging without hogging a much-needed plug.
We Can Help With Each of the Following Outlet Services:
- Outlet replacement
- New outlet installation
- Outlet relocation
- Outlet testing & maintenance
We even install, service, and maintain ground-fault circuit interrupter outlets, or GFCIs for short. These important devices should be installed on every outdoor outlet, as well as anywhere else water may be present like kitchen outlets and bathrooms.
When Is It Time to Upgrade Your Outlets?
Given their steady, reliable performance delivering electricity to our appliances and devices, it’s tempting to take our outlets for granted, but they do have a lifespan.
Why should you care? Old outlets can turn into safety hazard. Sometimes, the wires connected to the outlets become loose or frayed, creating an immediate fire danger – but this can be prevented by installing new outlets.
The easiest way to know when you need to update your outlets is to have an electrician inspect your home. There are also other warning signs that can clue you in when it’s time to make a change:
You May Need an Outlet Replacement in Portland If:
- You live in a home that is more than a few decades old
- There are visible sparks when you plug in your devices
- The circuits in your home get tripped frequently
- Sockets in the outlet become wiggly or loose
