Can I plug the large artic king window air conditioner into a average adapter or a power surge?

Just moved into a home where there is no 3 hole plug ins anywhere. What can I use to make it safe to plug in my air conditioner to the wall so no fire starts?

Re: Can I plug the large artic king window air conditioner into a average adapter or a power surge?

Hi there, ar19.

 

Welcome to our forum. You ask a great question. From what I understand, it is not recommended to connect an appliance of any sort to a 2-prong outlet as it is not grounded and, as you suggest, it can cause significant damage to your home. My best suggestion would be to speak with your landlord and see if this outlet can be grounded, as that would be far safer to use with an air conditioner or any other item that draws a lot of power.

 

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions I can answer.
