The lowly electrical outlet. When was the last time you gave those plugins a second thought? Maybe it was when you tripped over an appliance cord in your kitchen? Or struggled because a cord isn’t long enough to conveniently reach an outlet? If that happens, chances are someone didn’t do their job right when they wired your home. All we want from outlets is to plug a device in and get electrical power. But Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air wants to remind you the type of outlets in your home and their location are very important.
Depend on Dixie
Whether it’s outlets, electrical panels, or rewiring, Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air has the licensed electricians to do the job. You have our assurance that all work done will be according to local code, on time, and on budget.
You’ve likely heard about these but aren’t really sure what they mean. The codes govern electrical wiring. They are comprehensive and are not written arbitrarily. A great example is what we just mentioned: Outlet spacing. Kitchen outlets should be four feet or less away from each other. This is not based on a whim, rather it is the average length of cords found on most small kitchen appliances. The code is written to keep homeowners from stretching cords too far and creating hazards. The same principle applies living rooms, family rooms, and bedrooms, but in those locations the outlets should be no farther than 12 feet apart.
If you’re wondering if your home is up to code, contact us today.
