Re: Electrical Outlets
1.Grounded outlets do not protect you from lightening.
2.GFI outlets protect you.
3.Surge suppressors and some electronic equipment need ground to filter electrical noise.
4.Highly capacitive loads can trip GFI's.
5.Check the wiring in the outlet boxes. Even though the receptacles may not be grounded you may have the ground available in the box. If not you can run new cables or run a bonded wire to the outlet.
6.A missing ground will not burn out equipment.
7.Ground bonding is a safety feature but is not required for appliances to operate.
8.Most small appliances and lamps only have 2 prong plugs so adding a ground will accomplish little.
