Need New Electrical Outlets? Call E.T. Lawson!

- 10:55 am - December 21st, 2020

We’re sure this has happened to you all at some point in your lives: You go plug your vacuum cleaner or some other portable appliance in only to realize that there are no electrical outlets available because they’re either all taken or there aren’t any installed in the area. What do you do?

There’s just one safe solution – and that is to have E.T. Lawson’s expert electricians install new electrical outlets where they are needed!

But that might not be where the typical Hampton Roads homeowners’ mind goes. Here are some things you should avoid doing for safety reasons when you find yourself short on electrical outlets:

  • Avoid using extension cords, especially for prolonged periods of time. Not only are they not meant to be used permanently, they create tripping hazards.

  • Avoid using outlet adapters that allow you to plug in multiple devices in a single outlet. These are dangerous and can cause electrical fires.

  • Avoid forcing plugs into mismatched outlets. Things like removing the grounding prong on a plug can increase the risk of electrical shock.

  • Avoid using power strips for…

    • Refrigerators and freezers
    • Microwaves
    • Coffee makers
    • Toasters
    • Slow cookers

We want you to be safe, while having access to your home’s electrical system where and when you need it - but don't put yourself or your family's safety at risk! Contact us today or call to discuss adding new outlets in convenient places throughout your home.
