Plugging too many items into outlets is the cause of many house fires. Outlets are designed to handle a certain amount of current.
Power strips or extension cords are often used to allow several different electrical items to pull power from one outlet. If an outlet is overloaded, it can cause issues with the breaker box. In the worst cases, outlets can spark and start a fire. Keeping outlet load at a reasonable level is one of the electrical safety tips that can save lives.
If you need more wall outlets in your home, a professional electrician that adheres to electrical codes should install it to keep you and your family out of harms way. Contact your trusted First Aid Electric Calgary electrician today to get your outlets installed!
