Re: Air Flow Thru Outlets
Another fix is to caulk the openings in the boxes (you can use any inexpensive caulk). This requires shutting off the p0wer to any circuits entering the box and removing any devices (switches and outlets). Plastic boxes are much easier to seal than metal boxes because there are fewer holes and no seams. This task is best done by an electrician or someone familiar with electrical wiring, since it may require disconnection of wires to complete.

The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
