Garage Electrical Installation Safety

Installing electricity safely in your garage is a beast on its own, and without the right guidance and know-how, can be dangerous. Our Monmouth county electrician is here to provide you with the professional staff you need to get the job done right.

Too often, garages are treated with less precaution than the inside of your house when it comes to electricity, and that can lead to big problems down the road.

Garage Electrical Outlets

First and foremost, make sure you’re using the right type of outlets in your garage. Since many garages are vulnerable to flooding and moisture, it’s necessary that you install Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter safety outlets. They will prevent you from being electrocuted if you come into contact with any water while operating power tools–something a lot of us do in the garage.

Garage Electrical Wiring

Since our garage often becomes our workstations, it’s important to keep in mind the type of wiring you use depending on how many tools you plan to have running at once. Our professional-grade team can set up your garage for 240 volts with higher-gauge wiring, which will help keep your breakers from tripping and reduce the amp draw from your tools.

Garage Lights & Motion Sensors
