Types of Electrical Switches
Single Pole - Most common, they turn something on or off from a single location.
Double Pole - Used more in industrial situations, they can handle a higher power load than single pole.
Decorative (or Rocker) - Larger, and more flush against the wall, these switches are easier to use and have a more streamlined look.
Dimmable - A rotary switch that can be used to adjust the intensity of lights.
Push-Button - As the name implies, this doesn't have a "switch" but instead uses a pair of buttons, one for on and one for off.
Proximity - Energy efficient, this type of switch uses a motion detector to recognize someone entering a room and turns the lights on automatically then shuts them off a short time after they leave.
Photoelectric - This switch has a sensor that can detect light levels. Often used for exterior lighting, they can detect lower light levels as the sun goes down and turn on when they do.
Types of Electrical Outlets
- 15A, 120 Volt - Your typical outlet, they come in either two-pronged or three-pronged versions. The three-pronged version includes a ground pin to help avoid electric shock.
- 20A, 125 Volt - Used for larger appliances such as kitchen equipment that might require more power.
- 20A. 250 Volt - These are used for the most energy hungry equipment in your home, like air conditioners, washing machines, dryers or electric vehicle charging stations.
- Tamper-Resistant - These outlets feature a physical barrier which prevents objects other than two-pronged or grounded plugs from being inserted, making them safer for curious children.
- Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) - These outlets track current flow and can break the connection if a sudden spike is detected. Good for bathrooms as they can detect surges caused by water.
- Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) - AFCI outlets are able to detect "arcs," or electricity jumping between loose connectors. Arcs can generate a lot of heat, making them a fire hazard, so if this outlet detects one it shuts down.
- USB Outlets - Many of our modern devices are powered through USB cables; these outlets feature USB connections so you can plug your devices in even if you're missing their power "brick."
