Do you have enough outlets in your home? Many older homes only have one or two outlets per room, which is not nearly enough to accommodate today’s high-tech homeowner.
The use of extension cords in homes is the number one cause of household electrical fires. Building codes have since been amended to add additional outlets but many homes still lack the proper number of receptacles needed. We can install an electrical outlet anywhere in your home; right where you need it the most. We install additional outlets for flat screen TV’s, holiday lights, ironing boards, table lamps, and floor lamps, etc.
Ungrounded outlets lack a ground wire to protect you from electric shock. A ground wire provides a safe path away from you back into the ground if there is a short. Grounding also protects appliances from electrical damage. This is why many appliances have a three prong plug.
A two-prong outlet signifies that there is no ground wire and prevents a homeowner from plugging in an appliances or electronics that require grounding. In some cases, uninformed persons will replace a two prong outlet with a three-prong outlet without adding a new ground wire. This creates a major hazard and is potentially dangerous to anyone using that outlet. This is why replacing a two-prong outlet with a three prong outlet without running a new wire is illegal in Georgia.
Tamper Resistant outlets are designed to prevent injury or death to children by preventing the insertion of any device (pen, paper clip, etc.) into the outlet other than an electrical plug. The new outlet now has a special cover and looks like a regular outlet. These outlets have been used successfully in doctor’s offices, schools, and nurseries. Georgia now requires tamper resistant outlets in residential dwellings. Many electricians ignore this new code and continue to install the cheaper, outdated outlets to save money. We only install tamper resistant outlets. We will never install an inferior outlet in your home. Check your outlets for the “TR” label to make sure your home is as safe as it can be.
