I want to replace the receptacles in my home and when I removed some old receptacles I noticed that many of the wires are very short making replacing the receptacles quite difficult as most of the wires don't reach out of their respective receptacle box. Is there anything wrong, code or otherwise, with connecting new 12 gauge wire (color coded to match existing wire color) to the receptacles and splicing that in to the home wiring with push in connectorspush in connectors? Thank you.

Splicing new wire into existing home wiring
