I had Triad come and install a Tesla wall charger. They are extremely professional. Showed up to quote the job on schedule, and came to the installation a little early. EV installation/inspection for Duke EV credit is taken care of by Triad. The only item for me to take care of is sending in the paperwork to Duke to get my credit. They made everything easy for me.

Triad Electrical services provided an EV charger installation and we are satisfied with the entire experience. It was easy working with them: good communication throughout, professional, great customer service, and reasonably priced. To begin with, all the information regarding the service are clearly listed on their website making it super helpful to follow along the process. They were prompt with contacting us, and we were able to schedule an inspection site soon and an installation without any delay. Our main concern was that our outdoor and indoor breaker was full and other vendors were recommending various additional tasks, but they were able to get the job done without any trouble. Thank you for providing a smooth service!

Many thanks to Triad Electrical Services and especially Nick and Frank. I would highly recommend Triad and these are the reasons why: It is easy to schedule an appointment, they are always on time, thorough in their trouble shooting taking time to explain and answer questions, they resolve the issue and their prices are reasonable. I have used them twice and will call them again if another electrical issue arises.

The installers were polite and their work was very professional. They completed the EV installation well ahead of my expectations. The first company told me they would have to cut a hole in my drywall but they would not fix it. Triad installers ONLY fished the cable through a clean small hole where they installed a junction box. Thank you Triad.

Highly recommend!!! Setting up the appointment was straightforward and Chris was good about talking through the options for the EV/Hybrid charging outlet. We had several lighting issues inside/outside plus asked for the EV/Hybrid outlet installation. Technicians were on time, professional, and courteous. They kept me informed throughout the servicing. They worked hard all day and Chris came out to pitch in to finish - we ended up replacing all the fluorescent lights in closets with LED recess lights instead of trying to fix the builders grade old fluorescent tube lighting. In the end, we had all indoor/outdoor light issues fixes (broken outdoor light with bad connection and an indoor switch that wasn't working), new LED recess lights in all closets, and a new EV/Hybrid outlet installed in the garage. Appreciate they were upfront about costs. Will definitely use Triad Electrical Services again.

Had Triad install my EV charger. Wanted it hardwired and they came out, provided an estimate and explained what they were going to do. Had other estimates but Triad was the most professional and took the time to discuss the install process and their experience with the Duke Energy rebate program. Installation was great…in and out in 1.5 hours. EV Charger works great and we’re awaiting the City inspection so we can submit our rebate forms. Definitely recommend Triad!

Replacing Switches and Outlets: Your Options

Replacing a switch or outlet may seem to be a simple DIY project, but most people who are unfamiliar with how electrical systems work should stay away from working on any activated outlet or switch. Our electricians will evaluate the condition of the switch and ensure it is replaced safely. Along with safely replacing your outlets and switches, you will discover many other benefits with our professional outlet installation repair service.

Save Money and Time – Another reason to hire an electrician for outlet repair is that it will save you time. You may even save money as well by letting our Triad electrical professional perform your outlet repair service. Our team has repaired countless outlets, which means we know exactly how to get the job done and can do so as quickly as possible. 

Protect Your Appliances – Another good reason to hire an electrician to handle your outlet installation repair is that messing with your wiring can cause damage to your circuits, or the appliances connected to them if the wiring is faulty or just old. Our electrical experts know how to deal with temperamental wiring without letting it cause further problems.

Safety – Staying safe is the most important reason to have an electrician handle your outlet repair needs or any other electrical issues you may have. Electricity is dangerous, and a faulty outlet repair could leave you with a serious risk of electrical fires–not to mention the risk of serious injury if you are shocked.

If you need help with repairing or installing your electrical outlets, give our Triad professionals a call today.

Our goal is to be the electrician you rely on throughout all the years ahead, and we perform all our services with honesty, integrity, and skill:

Any outlet that is near a water source, whether in the kitchen, bathroom, garage, or shop, should be replaced with a GFCI outlet to protect against electric shock.
If you have an outlet that no longer functions, gets hot, or only intermittently works, it is critical that it is repaired and replaced at once. The risk of fire is increased when an outlet is past its prime, contains aging wires, has decayed wire insulation, or other problems.
If a switch in your home no longer works, we can install a new, more attractive switch, including toggle switches, rocker switches, push-button switches, touch light systems, timer-equipped switches, smart switches, and every other option.
Backstabbed outlets were installed without screws to hold the wires in place, a common practice in past years. Over time, the wires can loosen, causing a short that burns the circuit, leading to a more costly repair or fire risk.
Automate your home with lighting features you can control from your smartphone.

What Are the Common Outlets Found in Homes?

AC electrical sockets allow electricity to flow through an alternating current to any piece of equipment plugged into it. If you need an outlet installed in your home, there are a variety of different types that may be a good fit for your needs.

20A Outlets – These outlets are designed to handle more demanding devices. So, this means that this strong outlet can handle devices without tripping the breaker. The 20A outlets will usually be installed where heavy appliances are used like utility closets and kitchens.

Switched Outlets – These outlets are used to replace one of the receptacles with a switch. 

USB Outlets – Used primarily in modern homes, USB outlets provide receptacles for USB cords alongside two normal receptacles.

Smart Outlets – These interesting outlets can be hooked up to your smartphone and turned on and off through that device.

AFCI Outlets – Known as “arc fault circuit interrupters”, AFCI outlets prevent electricity from jumping between wires and starting fires.

GCFI Outlet – This particular outlet is typically installed in outdoor areas or in damp areas in your home. Your GFCI will detect when a current is flowing through an unintentional path. After discovering that your electricity has flown through the wrong path, It will then shut off the electric power circuit that is providing electricity to that outlet.
