Benefits of Multi Utility Connections

Multi Utility Connections are a great way to power your lights, TV, and a variety of other appliances with just one outlet. Some homes are built without outlets in the areas where they would be most beneficial. This is not a problem if your home has a garage or basement, but most homes do not come equipped with these luxuries.

Benefits of Multi Utility Connections

  1. No matter where you are in the house, it’s easy to find a way to power your lights with one multipurpose provider.

This is especially helpful when you have multiple rooms that require a power source, such as a bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom.

  1. Many of these outlets are available in many colors and styles.

You will be able to find the perfect outlet cover to match your decor at varying price points depending on quality and materials used. If you don’t have a particular color or style in mind, it shouldn’t be difficult to find one that is close enough.

  1. These outlets can be installed in any room of your house by skilled professionals.

Depending on the size and complexity of the area, a professional can install one outlet for about $100. With this price, you’ll be able to work with a pro that has extensive experience with home remodeling, repair, and construction projects.

  1. It’s easy to identify which device is connected to each outlet.

With most devices such as lights and televisions that have individual breakers, you will only need one multipurpose source to power them all at the same time. This saves money as well because you don’t need multiple individual outlets for each device when all you need is one multipurpose source.

  1. You can use any device that needs an outlet to be plugged into these “devices” for power.

This is great for remote controls, battery backups, and other devices that need a power source. Most of these devices are designed to work well with a single multipurpose source, but many of new appliances have their own AC power source and will not work with anything else. With Multi Utility Connections you can tap into the wall outlet to provide your device with some juice without the use of any external AC power grid.

  1. These outlets typically don’t take up much room in your home since they are often small in size.

You can typically install them in places where other outlets would be a problem or where the space is limited.

How to use Multi Utility Connections:

Different manufacturers and different standards have been developed that are needed to use these outlets.

The most common is UL 1777. This standard allows you to plug in any device that has a dedicated breaker built into it so it can safely be plugged into the multi outlet.

If your device does not have a dedicated breaker, you’ll need to look for an outlet that uses the same cable type as your device, (18-2), which was also developed for this purpose.

These outlets can even be used with a TV, stereo, and other devices that are plugged in to a wall outlet, but don’t have either of these standards.

They have to be manually switched by the person being charged and only apply power to the device that is currently plugged into it. Many of these units are very cheap and you should look for one that has an on/off switch built in rather than one that you would have to activate manually. They use a simple adhesive mount system that can usually be applied without cutting into your wall, but sometimes will require some preparation work before installation.
