Looking for ways to declutter? Installing a USB wall plate is a swanky feature that can help you do just that. This small electrical fixture provides additional plug-in features while removing the need for multiple adapters dangling off your wall. If you are like me and have multiple devices, from cellphones, to iPads, laptops and Kindles, this is music to your ears! These outlets will also help eliminate the many power strips that may be cluttering your floor space, as well.
Several of these state of the art outlets even have an energy efficient feature. Electricity is regulated by sensors to output only the energy needed for the specific device that is plugged in. Also, spring-loaded safety shutters helps prevent any harm to the little ones with exploring hands or by incorrectly trying to plug in the wrong device. These safety shutters also eliminate wasted standby power when nothing is plugged in. A night light is not standard, but can be found on some of the USB wall plates.
Our craftsmen are skilled in installing these wall plates and can inform you of any rewiring that may be needed. A deeper space is required to install these wall plates that may not be present in some older homes, but a benefit is that you will have a smoother finish against the wall. (Older model wall plates tend to stick out a bit further.) Let us know your interest in these during your walk-through and we can check to see if this is an option for your home and have this quick update modernize your home.
