too few outlets
Licensed Commercial Electricians in Ottawa
If you need more outlets than are installed in your home or office, don’t try to increase the usage with extension cords. An overloaded power outlet will increase the risk of electrocution and fire. Circuit breakers will be tripped more often
Items that generate heat like hair dryers, space heaters, toasters, etc. should always be plugged directly into an outlet and not through a power strip or extension cord.
Power strips and extension cords have value but only for short term use. The best way to get access more electricity is to have a licensed electrician install more outlets. It is possible that the current breaker or electric panel is not sufficient to handle the additional power and the electrician should address that issue as well.
