Tamper Resistant receptacles have gated ports preventing foreign objects like hair pins or keys from entering the slot on the plug. This child friendly technology became mandatory on most receptacles throughout new homes and businesses built after 2009. Consider upgrading your older non-Tamper Resistant receptacles to modern code compliant plugs. Receptacles throughout newer homes are now required to have AFCI protection. This is important to install on all new installations or can be added to your existing home. Call Cochrane Electric today.
