If you have small children in your home, you’re probably no stranger to the hazards of a standard electrical outlet. Perhaps one of the most important thing you can do is make sure that any outlets within reach are protected from tampering, with installation by an experienced and licensed electrician.
JVD Electric can install tamper resistant and childproof outlets for the benefit of everyone in your home, securing you and your family’s peace of mind.
The Benefits of Tamper Resistant Receptacles
While the immediate role a childproof outlet plays is rather obvious, there are many other benefits that go along with their installation, such as:
When you plug an appliance in, sometimes you can walk away from it without even thinking twice. This can pose a fire hazard or leave it exposed to children. The mere decision to have childproof outlets installed will increase your awareness of the outlets in your home and prevent careless use.
The danger of harm to children doesn’t just exist in the outlet itself. By emulating adults, a small child can potentially plug in a dangerous appliance, meaning that even “proper” outlet use in the wrong hands can be dangerous. The right outlet will instill safe habits all around the house.
Children aren’t the only ones crawling around your home. Curious pets can benefit from the protection of a covered or protected outlet, meaning that everyone gets to enjoy a properly powered home.
