It isn’t hard to install new electrical outlets, but it’s important to prep your home accordingly. To avoid any strange scenarios, check out the three tips below:
Tip One: Turn Off the Breaker
Before adding a new outlet, you’ll need to make sure your breaker panel is turned off. Double-check that your breaker is turned off with a voltage tester. If you don’t have a voltage tester, plug in a lap to the nearest-available socket. Additionally, it’s a good idea to test the new socket directly by plugging the excess length into an electrical application.

Either way, lighting upgrades are a relatively inexpensive way to change the décor of your house and make it feel like a personalized home. You’ll have the new lighting for years to come, so it’s worthwhile to take some time and consider what you’ll be happy with before starting the project.
