ReEnergize Pittsburgh Outlet Caps, Outlet & Light Switch Covers


The potential energy savings from reducing drafts in a home may range from 5% to 30% per year, and the home is generally much more comfortable afterward.




Did you know that drafts can get into your home through outlet and light switches on exterior walls?

Electrical outlet and light switch covers help reduce drafts in your home. They are incredibly easy to install and fit right inside the plastic covers that are on your light switches currently, adding an extra layer of insulation and stopping those drafts. Electrical safety caps can both stop drafts and protect outlets. They plug directly into wall outlets easily, and are an added layer of protection!
