A worn outlet or switch may show several different signs that it needs to be replaced. If the switch or outlet feels loose, or fails to perform it's appointed function, it most likely needs replacement.
• Some switches may produce a cracking sound, and the lights may flicker when you attempt to
use the switch.
• A worn outlet loses it's ability to hold on to an appliance plug. You will see this in outlets that
are ordinarily used for vacuum cleaners or electrical yard equipment.
• If you have an older home with several two-prong outlets that do not accomodate modern
three-pronged plugs, they need to be replaced for safety reasons.
For both outlets and switches, always consider the age as well as traffic use. If you suspect your outles and switches need to be replaced, please call us here at Pingston Electric, LLC. The experienced hands of one of our electricians can replace the outlets and switches while also addressing any underlying fire hazards within the wiring, therby making your home safer.

Pingston Electric is awesome. I used them for my renovation work and was really pleased with the work and suggestions they offered. John the owner is very accommodating and had some great suggestions. Gabriel was the electrician they sent and he was fantastic - quick, neat and did a fantastic job. He worked on about 20 fixtures and I am so happy with the way they all turned out. Didn't even need to break out my vacuum when he left. Even Roxanne the office help, was great to deal with. I would highly recommend them and will be using them for my bathroom renovations.
