How To Details

Criteria 12 – Four-plex Outlet Locations: Placed in master bedroom, home office, garage, and recreation room.

In most homes you only have two outlets beside the bed. One is usually a switched outlet that lets you turn on a light beside the bed from a switch beside the door, and the other outlet is used for your clock radio. If you have electric blankets, cell phones, electric beds, foot-warmers or other accessories where do you plug them in.

Bedrooms are where you commonly see a lot of accessories vying for too few plugs. Being SAFERhome requires a 4-plex outlet on either side of the Master bedroom bed location. That’s right, 4-plexes on both sides for a total for 8 outlets within easy reach.
