Electrical Outlet Types
The Canadian electrical code demands a specific outlet, depending on the location.
GFCI outlets (ground fault circuit interrupter):
Are needed where an outlet is close to a water source. They are utilized in basements, outdoors, kitchens, and bathrooms.
AFCI outlets (arc fault circuit interrupter):
Protect against arcing (which can quickly cause a fire). Most dwellings built after 1999 have AFCI circuit breakers installed at the circuit breaker box. Still, if you own an older property, you can have AFCI receptacles installed at the beginning of each circuit, so all receptacles following in that circuit are safe. If you are refurbishing your home or adding a new room, new circuits need to be AFCI by code.
Tamper Resistant Receptacle:
Designed to help protect children from the dangers of inserting foreign objects into electrical outlets. A shutter device inside the outlet blocks access to the contacts except when a two-prong plug is inserted. Foreign objects will be locked out. Canadian Electrical Code demands Tamper-resistant outlets in new and renovated residential construction.
Standard 15 Amp decora outlets:
The most common electrical outlets are 15–amp decora receptacles in modern homes. 15–amp outlets are made to receive standard plugs for most small appliances, lamps, and electronics.
20 Amp Outlets:
20A circuits and breakers are often found in kitchens, laundry rooms, and garages, which is where most of the power-heavy appliances are used.
Are outlets or receptacles that are controlled by a wall switch. Used primarily when lamps were more prevalent instead of center lights like today.
Plugs that have USB ports located on the front sides of the outlet. Handy for tech-savvy homes
It can be controlled by a smart home system or from an app. It can be integrated with many different designs.
Weather Resistant Outlet:
Typically refers to a weatherproof cover used to withstand the outdoor elements.
Recessed Wall Outlets:
Usually found behind TVs. Used anywhere a plug end protrusion would cause problems.
