Protect Your Home With GFCI/AFCI Outlet Installation in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, Texas
GFCI outlets are designed to protect against electrical shock by stopping the flow of electricity to an outlet if there is a change in current. AFCI outlets are designed to protect against fire by shutting off power to an outlet if it senses heat (overheating) or arcing. Both of these devices are important for your home’s safety, and we can install them for you!

· Power Surge Protection
If you have a home with an older electrical system, it’s likely that your outlets are unprotected against power surges. Power surges can occur when heavy appliances like computers, televisions or refrigerators suddenly draw more electricity than they normally do, or when the electrical grid experiences a sudden change in demand. These surges can damage both your appliances and your outlets’ wiring, causing short circuits or even fires if left unchecked.
· Lightning Surge Protection
Lightning is another major source of power surges, which can also cause damage to electronics. When lightning strikes close by, it can disrupt the flow of electricity through your home’s electrical system and cause damage to electronic devices and appliances. McBride Electric offers lightning surge protection by installing new GFCI outlet for your home’s electrical system so that you can protect yourself from these dangerous events.
GFCI/AFCI Outlet Installation FAQs
How much does it cost to install a new GFCI outlet?
The cost of installing new GFCI outlet depends on what kind of outlet you have and what type of circuit breaker you need. If you have an existing GFCI outlet, we can simply replace the cover plate and test it to make sure it works. If not, we can quote you for the cost of installing a new GFCI outlet in your home.
Do I need an electrician to install a GFCI outlet?
If you are planning on installing new GFCI outlet yourself, it is best to have an electrician do the work for you. This is because there are many places that require professionals to work on electrical systems. It’s also important that your wiring is done properly so that your home stays safe from electrical fires and other hazards.
How much do AFCI outlets cost?
AFCI outlets are more expensive than standard GFCI outlets, but they are worth the investment. An average GFCI outlet costs around $15-25, while an average AFCI outlet costs around $30-40. However, the higher price is justified by their ability to protect your home from electrical fires and prevent electrical shock.
How long does it take to install a GFCI outlet?
The time it takes to install a GFCI outlet depends on the complexity of your setup and how many outlets you need to be protected. If you’re installing an outlet that is already wired, then it will take less time than if you need to install the wiring yourself. We can provide an estimate for installation costs when you call or email us with details about your project.
How many outlets can a GFCI protect?
A GFCI outlet can protect up to 15 circuits at once, as long as they are connected to one another through 20-amp or smaller breakers. The maximum number of outlets that can be protected by a single breaker is four; however, if you have more than four circuits connected in series, the second circuit will not be protected by your GFCI protection.
