The neutral wire carries electricity from the outlet back to the electrical panel.

Updating 2 prong 3 prong outlets

You see, both two-prong and three-prong outlets have a hot and neutral wire.

The hot wire carries electricity from your electrical panel to the outlet.

Yes, if you have a two-prong outlet it’s an “ungrounded” outlet and is unsafe.

A 3-prong outlet, on the other hand, is a “grounded” outlet and is a much safer upgrade for your home and family.

That ground wire is incredibly important because it provides a safe “exit” route for any extra voltage that the outlet might receive.
