The safety of our customers and their children is always a top concern for your Peoria Electricians. Today I want to talk about updating your home with a tamper resistant outlets and how it will cost you less in the long run. As per the National Electrical Code all new homes built are required to install temper resistant outlets. These outlets will only work when a plug is inserted correctly. They will not work if something is inserted into one of the openings of the outlet, so a child putting an object into one of the openings will disable it and protect the child. Many parents have used the plastic plug covers that work great until your toddler figures out how to pull them out, then they become another choking hazard. Don’t waste money on plug covers when upgrading your outlets to the tamper resistant will protect your family and increase the value of your home.
