Im new here, but not necessarily new to the forum world. Im installing a new outlet and I wanted to bounce the idea off some people and hopefully someone will know if what Im trying to do is safe/correct.
I just mounted a LCD to the wall in my bedroom and I installed a new 2 gang box to hold the coax and an outlet. The outlet is wired and I have the 14/2 running down through the wall about 3 feet and out a cold air return. I plan to drill through a stud since there is an outlet on the other side, about 6 inches away. The outlet is switched, top is hot and bottom is switched controlled. The outlet was installed with the push in wire connections on the back as opposed to the screw terminals. My question is this: Can I tap on to the top plug screw terminals for my new TV outlet with the romex I plan to run through the stud? Or is this unsafe for some reason? Im not sure how many outlets are currently on this breaker, but Im assuming it is just my bedroom which is 4 outlets, one of which is used. 15A circuit.
Thanks for any help!
