What Is the Difference Between Electrical Outlets & Switches?
Electrical outlets and switches are both used to control the flow of electricity to a specific area of your home. Both of these devices are connected to a breaker panel or fuse box, which allows them to receive electricity from the power company. The main difference between these two types of electrical devices is that outlets are used to power appliances and switches are used to control lighting.
Outlets provide electricity to lamps, coffee makers, televisions, and other appliances that don't require human intervention to work. A switch, on the other hand, is used to control the flow of electricity to a lamp or light fixture. When you flip a switch, the light turns on. When you flip the switch again, the light turns off.
