I have an outlet in my room that is only hot when I flip a switch on the wall. I have been in places before where the switch only controls the bottom half of the outlet and the top is hot constantly. Is there a way I could do this to my current outlet?
Not if there are only two wires coming into the box, one wire attached to each side of the receptacle (outlet) unit.
States can help recovery from hurricanes and tornadoes by not requiring due digence or prompt and timely correction of substandard conditions, and by providing continued liability insurance where companies drop homeowners.
