Your electrical outlets are an essential part of your home, but they may not be in convenient locations that match your needs. At Acosta Heating, Cooling & Electrical, we can install and wire new outlets for your home, including GFCI and USB outlets. Our skilled and courteous electricians show up on time, perform the service quickly and safely, and ensure you’re happy with the work before they leave.
GFCI Outlets Wiring
When it comes to your home’s electrical wiring, safety is a top priority. GFCI outlets provide a higher level of protection and are required in critical areas throughout the home, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and anywhere a water source is present. Acosta performs GFCI outlet wiring and outlet installation services that keep you, your family, and your home safe.
With over half of the homes in the U.S. built before GFCI outlets were introduced, you might need to install or replace one or more standard outlets in your Charlotte, NC, property.
USB Outlet Installation
With people now using their digital and mobile devices in every room of the house, USB outlets have become increasingly popular. Whether you want to install USB port-equipped outlets into existing fixtures or put entirely new USB outlets where they’re needed, the Acosta team has you covered.
We’ll install single receptacle, duplex receptacle, or four-port USB outlets or chargers in any room of your home and give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing the work’s been done safely and efficiently.
Outlet Replacement & Repair
Need electrical outlet replacement or repair services? Common issues we address include:
- Outlets that don’t hold plugs firmly
- Non-functioning outlets
- Outlets that are vibrating, making strange noises, are warm, or show signs of burning.
- Outlets that spark when an appliance or other device is plugged in
While some electrical outlet issues are minor, others can signal dangerous problems, so it’s essential to have a professional inspect, repair, or replace any faulty outlets.

FAQs About Outlet Wiring
Can I replace any outlet with a USB outlet?
Except for switched outlets or outlets dedicated to a single appliance, you can replace any outlet with a USB one. USB charging receptacles install similarly to standard outlets, so your electrician can make the exchange for you.
What should I do if my outlets are loose?
If the outlet is old or worn out, it’s best to replace it with a new one. As loose outlets can expose the people in your home to direct voltage, sparks, or other electrical hazards, it’s crucial to have them repaired or replaced as soon as you notice the problem.
