If you own ten or more electric .appliances, you are, probably as up-to-date a? you can .be — that is, if you also have adequate wiring to handle the load. Without enough power, your appliances cannot work to their full capacity. Electrical appliances were invented to make your life easier and more, pleasant, but they are not doing the job if they don't have the power to work fully. Do some preplanning with your electrician ... to prpvide wiring not only for your needs today — but to handle your power load in the future as well. Live better electrically!
