I am trying to add an outlet behind my tv by picking off the outlet below it. When I took off the outlet cover I noticed its in the middle of a run and the builder (house built in 2000) had used 14-3 Romex. I'm a bit confused since its not tied to any switches. There are two lines of Romex coming into holes in the box, so each twist is bundling three wires (two hots + pigtail) and (two neutrals + pigtail), same with the ground.
I want to run 14-2 Romex out the top of the box to my new tv outlet and I'm wondering:
A. Can I just attach the new new Romex to the sides of the duplex outlet? (Of course I'd have to bundle the grounds).
B. Or should I just get new twists (yellow? beige?) that accommodate 4 wires and attach the new Romex that way, instead of connecting to the outlet?
C. Is it even safe to have this much wire stuffed into a single box? Thanks for any advice.
