additional outlets

At Breakwater Electric LLC, we help clients from Connecticut with their residential electrical needs.

Is your home equipped with three-prong receptacles? The third prong on a typical electrical appliance plug that provides an extra measure of safety against electrical shock. Two-prong outlets, often found in older homes, may not be grounded correctly and should be upgraded. Do your lights dim when your appliances start?
Appliances such as air conditioners, clothes dryers, refrigerators and furnaces use extra electricity when they start. An overloaded system can damage the equipment. If you use outlet strips to make up for a lack of electrical outlets, you may be creating more demand than a single outlet or electrical line can handle safely. Outlet strips are not the answer. You need additional outlets and possibly new wiring to service these outlets.
