Question about adding add'l outlet
Having just built our home we we not sure of the placement of some items so did not allow for enough electrical outlets. One area in particular is in the bonus room where I plan to have the following that needs a power source:
-Possibly a subwoofer unless I install elsewhere
I currently have one outlet in this built-in area. Can I simply connect a power strip(s) to the outlets to power this equipment? I'm not sure how much total power it would be pulling and don't want to overload the circuit or cause a fire! If not, would installing a new box with four outlets and the existing feed wire make a difference or do I need to string a new line to this area?
Not sure what's totally involved as I have limited electrical experience and any work needed will be done by an electrician.
Thanks in advance.
