- 2-prong Outlets: How old is your home? Old enough to have 2-prong outlets? If so, it’s time to upgrade. Older, 2-prong outlets are completely outdated in today’s electrical systems, having been replaced with newer, more efficient and safer 3-prong varieties. Although they are from antiquated systems, these 2-prong outlets are a common issue in many homes and should be updated this spring to improve electrical efficiency and lower chance of electrical mishap in your home.
