One of the most common things home workers need is extra outlets. If you are using extension cords, then you need a wiring upgrade. Extension cords are not meant as long-term solutions. They are not safe, they are not attractive, and they are a sign that you need added infrastructure. What’s more, when we add outlets, we can add USB outlets too.
Computers are more sensitive to electrical signal changes and more sophisticated than most things that are plugged into your home. By adding a dedicated circuit, your computer equipment is isolated from other devices you have on other circuits, like your fridge and heater. No matter if another item draws excess electricity, your dedicated computer circuit will not be affected.
You have likely seen surge protectors on power strips, but you can actually install a whole-house surge protector. It is installed near your electrical panel and can help protect anything plugged in throughout your home if there is an electrical surge.
Along with installing a surge suppressor, we can also install a power conditioner. Think of this as a cheap form of insurance that helps make sure that the current that goes to all of your devices is stable and reliable. Today’s devices are refined and sophisticated – and that will only become more true as time goes on. A power conditioner allows for better fuel.
Wi-Fi is handy for many reasons, but it does not offer a connection as stable as a hard-wired internet connection. If you need a lot of bandwidth for things like video conferencing, then having a hard-wired internet connection can be essential. This is especially true if you have several people using the same connection.
