Description

Ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets are required for areas with potential exposure to water and moisture to reduce the risk of electric shocks and fires. The hall bathroom GFCI is not functional and needs to be repaired. The kitchen south wall outlets are not GFCI protected, but this is ok because they are not near the sink.

The outlets installed above baseboard heaters are a fire hazard. There is a risk that a plugged-in electrical cable is heated up enough to catch fire. These outlets should ideally be moved. Short of that take extra precautions to keep wires clear of the baseboard heaters.

The weather cover for the exterior outlet does not fully close when it’s in use, making it vulnerable to water/weather intrusion. This is easily corrected.

There is an open junction box in the attic that needs to have a cover installed.

If Not Addressed

Safety is the main concern here. Electrical accidents tend to be extremely hazardous and should be avoided at all costs.

Estimated Costs

We estimate this project will cost about $100-$150. It could be combined with the more high priority electrical panel project for a discount. These costs will fluctuate based on the actual conditions the electrician encounters. Request quotes from at least 3 professionals.dollars.
