Extra electrical outlets

Increases in modern technology use mean we use around four times as many appliances and gadgets as we did 20 years ago. This trend has resulted in our homes electrical systems being under greater stress, as each device fights for wall socket space and power.

Many older homes were only designed with one electrical socket per room which back when they were built, was plenty. However, modern demands on ageing electrical systems can lead to overloading power points with multiple double adaptors or power boards which can cause overheating and potentially fire.

Adding extra power sockets to the area's of your house with high demand, like the kitchen, media room or bathroom, makes for a safer more appliance friendly home.

Replacing faulty sockets

Never use wall sockets which show signs of overheating or damage. Watch out for:

  • burn marks
  • melted areas
  • exposed wires
  • lose or broken wall plates
  • broken switches
  • sparking

Contact a licenced electrician to check or replace unsafe electrical sockets as soon as possible.
