Adding extra outlets will give every electronic item a home when it comes time to charge the device or need the outlet for a stationary electrical appliance. It increases the convenience and usability of your space.
Common Light Switch Problems
Have you noticed something different with your switches? Here are early warning signs that your switch may need to be replaced.
Popping or cracking sounds when flipping the switch – these sounds indicate live electricity arching inside the switch, which over time could cause a fire or other hazardous situations.
Switch plate is hot – plates often run warm, depending on the type of switch installed. But if the switch is clearly hot, it is a good indication that there are more serious issues going on like too high of voltage running through the switch, or problems with the wiring within the walls.
Delay with the light turning on – a delay from when the switch is flipped on to when the light actually turns on, most likely the switch itself is worn, and needs replaced.
