Two-Pronged, Ungrounded Outlets
When you think of a modern outlet, you picture the three-pronged ones.
Homes built before 1962, however, often have two-prong ungrounded outlets. These put residents at a higher risk of electrocution. And, they may damage electronics when power surges happen.
If these reasons aren’t compelling enough, consider the fact that most modern electronics require three-pronged outlets. So, if your home has two-pronged outlets, you’ll want to upgrade to three-pronged outlets.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) prevent electrical shocks and overheated circuits. They do this by halting power flow between electrical and grounded sources.
You should have GFCIs in specific locations throughout your home. If you have a missing GFCI in your kitchen/bathroom/etc., you should get a new one installed.
