The outlets in your home get a great deal of use every day, but many homeowners never consider whether or not the outlets they are using are as safe as possible. Just like you update your electronics after a certain period of time so that they follow the latest standards, you should also have your electrical outlets replaced. What are some of the benefits of doing so?
Many modern electrical outlets include USB ports, which make it simpler to charge anything that you need to without a charging block. Having an additional port or two for USB charging also means that you can use both plugs in your outlet while also charging your tablet or phone. We can help you choose the best outlet for your needs, including ones that include four or more USB ports in convenient locations in your house.
Older electrical outlets tend to get loose or wobbly when you plug things in. While this is not always an immediate hazard, it can lead to a greater risk of sparks or plugs falling out when they are not supposed to. Loose outlets will occur naturally due to normal wear and tear. The good news is that they are very easy to replace, and a new outlet could also contain a lock that prevents plugs from being ripped from the wall. This can improve the lifespan of your electronics and the outlet itself.
Do you rely on extension cords and power strips to have outlets where you need them? This is an acceptable solution for a day or two, but it can lead to a major electrical fire risk in the long term. An electrician can visit your home to help determine where additional outlets can be installed to improve your convenience. As a rule of thumb, every appliance should be directly plugged into an outlet instead of a power strip. Additionally, you should never use an extension cord for more than a temporary solution. We can help install new electrical outlets in convenient and safe locations for your needs.
