The first question usually asked is, 'What is the difference between a receptacle & a plug?'
 
The receptacle is the normal utility grade outlet that is common in most households & businesses. A plug is the actual end of the cord that you insert into the receptacle.
 
 
The next question commonly asked is what is the difference between grounded & ungrounded outlets?
 
A grounded outlet looks like a smiley face because it has three holes instead of two. An ungrounded outlet only has the two basic holes parallel to one another.
 
 
Another question is question is when should you upgrade your electrical service?
 
The answer is if your home is over 25 years old & has not been upgraded since it was built. Innovations have occurred since then & so now the electrical system may be inadequate & possibly hazardous. To be safe you should call us & have a thorough inspection to make sure your home is up to today's electrical code standards.

There was a time before 120 volt AC was the standard for electricity delivery in Southern California?
 
Thomas Edison developed direct current (DC), this process continuously runs electric current in one direction i.e. battery or fuel cell. During his time DC became the standard in the US. The problem was that DC does not convert easily to higher or lower voltages. Conversely, Nikola Tesla believed alternating current (AC) would be the solution to this problem. AC reverses direction a certain number of times per second making is easier to convert to different voltages using a transformer. Thomas Edison, concerned about losing the royalties from his DC patent embarked on a campaign to discredit Tesla & his AC transformer method. This was the beginning of what was known as War of the Currents.
 
During the height of the Current War in 1893, the Chicago World's Fair was held. General Electric (GE) bid using Edison's DC for $554,000 but lost the project to George Westinghouse who bid using Tesla's AC for $399,00 to light the fair. Also that year, Niagara Falls Power Company decided to award Westinghouse the contract using Tesla's AC induction motor patent. Although people doubted that the falls could light up Buffalo, NY Tesla believed it could light up the entire Eastern United States. On November 16, 1896 Buffalo, NY was lit up by the AC using Niagara Falls. In “light” of these events, General Electric converted to the AC method.
 
With all this considered it appears that AC won the war, but with recent events, that is not necessarily true. Computers, LED's solar cells & electric vehicles run on DC power. Today there are methods available to convert DC to higher & lower voltages. The stability of DC has companies searching for ways to use high voltage DC (HVDC) to transport the electricity long distances more efficiently.
 
It looks like the War of the Currents is not quite over, & it appears that a combination of AC & DC will be the outcome that will be best for electricity use. We have to thank Edison's & Tesla's genius for making our electrical uses possible.
