Safety Moment
According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), the following tips will help when trying not to overload electrical outlets, which is a common cause of household electrical problems:

  • Do not use extension cords or multi-outlet converters for appliances.
  • Only plug one heat-producing appliance into an outlet at a time.
  • Hot outlets should be checked by qualified electricians.
  • Remember that power strips only add outlets. They do not change the amount of power the outlet receives.
  • Smart plugs can be used to monitor outlet power loads and even shut off appliances should an outlet begin to overheat.
