Electrical outlets are a distribution point for electricity. Most people plug things in, or leave things plugged in, every single day. There are many types of electrical outlets. They make outlets for regular things like tv’s, radios, coffee pots, hair dryers and toaster ovens. They also make heavy duty outlets for dryers, ovens, welders and generators. Many outlets have a certain configuration so you can only plug in devices made for it. You can’t plug a range into a dryer outlet and you can’t plug a dryer into a range outlet! It’s designed that way for safety. Make sure you get the right outlet for the job!
