Electrical outlets are essential to any home to keep appliances, electronics, chargers and much more running smoothly. Be sure your home has enough outlets to power all the devices and appliances you want to use. Whether you're just changing up the faceplates on your outlets or you want to completely change the decor in your room, you can find outlets to match your preferred style and put the right finishing accents on your home.
When it comes to home use, the three-pronged outlet is standard. Just like you can find various dimmers and switches that include faceplates, you can find full replacement outlets at Sears. In certain rooms of your home, you'll want to look for an electrical outlet with fault protection built-in. These are best for bathrooms, where hairdryers, curling irons and other devices will be in use at the same time. The moisture from the environment mixed with a heavy electrical pull can cause surges more frequently. Having a fixture with built-in security can save both you and your appliances from shocks and spikes in power.
You may run into certain instances around your home when a standard plug won't be able to do the job. This can be the case when it comes to large appliances like your washer, dryer or range. They may have different voltages and unique plug configurations. These appliances require specialized outlets that can handle the greater voltage and amperage needed to run them. For outdoor electrical use, you'll want to get an outlet that has a sturdy and weather resistant cover. This will keep out all insects as well as moisture, while giving you easy access for connecting power tools like leaf blowers and buffers.
Using your electrical outlets may require a few accessories. Often, you're going to be plugging in more than just two devices at a time. Investing in a power strip will give you more outlets and most models offer surge protection. For simple organization, try standard power strips with multiple outlets. If you need to arrange a variety of devices with unusually shaped plugs, some power strips include outlets that can be rotated so that all your devices fit.
