Why Should You Replace Two-Prong Outlets?
If your home is equipped with two-prong outlets, it’s time to find a licensed electrician to upgrade your home’s wiring. There is a significant danger in keeping those old two-prong and builders-grade outlets installed in your home. In fact, older homes with these outlets and switches are at a higher risk of power outages and home fires. Three-prong outlets have become the new standard, and with help from the team at Beacon Electrical Services, you’ll successfully upgrade your home while receiving service from one of the best electricians in town.
Here’s how outlet and switch upgrades can help you:
- Enhanced Power. When you invest in outlet and switch upgrades from Beacon Electrical Services, you’ll notice a huge improvement in home power. We’ll ditch those two-prong outlets in favor of three-prong outlets that guarantee enhanced power for all appliances. With upgrades, you won’t have to worry about power outages during work-related sessions on your computer, an important scene on your favorite television show, or cooking a meal in the microwave. Our outlet and switch upgrades ensure one major thing: No-frills, ever-reliant power.
- Better Compatibility. Good luck plugging your laptop charger or plasma screen TV into your old two-prong outlets. Two-prong outlets are a thing of the past, and most of today’s electrical devices can’t even use them. There’s nothing more annoying than having to search the house for an appropriate outlet or buying adapters every time you need to plug something in. Upgrading your outlets will make your life instantly less complicated.
- Lowered Chance of Electric Shock. According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International, more than 300,000 Americans receive non-fatal electrical shocks every year, and that’s not including the number of electricity-related deaths. Many of those incidents are caused by using outdated outlets. Using older outlets increases your risk of shock as well the chances of your home experiencing power outages and electrical fires.
- Improved Energy Efficiency. As with safety, older outlets simply can’t compare to the kind of energy efficiency provided by modern three-prong outlets. Two-prong outlets often need more electricity to power appliances, and they simply weren’t made to handle the demands of today’s high-powered electrical devices. All that extra energy means your energy bills are higher than they need to be. Updating your outlets is an effective way to lower your monthly electric bill and save money in the long run.
