Do I Have Too Many Things Plugged In?

In today’s day and age, we tend to be always powered to our devices. When living in a home, we forget that even when our devices are plugged in and not being used, they still can cause issues to the circuits. This is what we call a circuit overload. There can be many problems when you plug in too many things in your home. Your home can’t handle too much all at once, so it’s important to be smart when using electronics and other appliances.

Overloading of Power Boards

What happens frequently in homes is the overloading of power boards, which then causes circuit tripping. If you have several electrical outlets in use doing quite a bit of work supplying power to entertainment units, power strips with many things plugged in, and other big items, this can easily cause circuit tripping in your home.

How do you avoid this problem?

  • Remove all devices that aren’t in use (charging chords still draw power when not connected)
  • Don’t over burden a single circuit. Spread out your devices
  • Pay attention to the necessities. Unplug things after you use them
