Electric Outlet Upgrades
To avoid overloading your circuits and prevent the risk of electrical fires, outlets should be upgraded to have the appropriate electrical capacity in each location of major appliances and other large electrical devices, including home theatres, security systems, specialty lighting and computer systems.
Electrical circuit overloads happen when more amperage (the strength of an electric current) is transferred across an electrical wire than the circuit can handle.
Circuit overloads can be caused by loose, corroded, or faulty wires and connections. However, most circuit overloads occur when you draw more power than the outlet’s maximum capacity.
For example, if you plug a heaver appliance into an outlet and you don’t have enough amperage to support the device, a circuit breaker may be tripped or a fuse will blow. All devices using that circuit will be turned off.
