How old is the electrical wiring in your home?
Would it meet current electrical regulation standards if tested?
Older properties were not wired to support all the gadgets and appliances in the modern home. Most rooms may only have one or two sockets and you may be using extension leads to enable you to use more appliances at the same time. But circuits can become overloaded, leading to a greater risk of fire.
Check if you are overloading your sockets by using this calculator from Electrical Safety First:

Having your property rewired with new circuits and a new fuse board will improve safety and reduce the risk of fire hazards. Such work, however, needs to be carried out by a qualified and competent electrician to ensure that it meets all requirements of the current IET Wiring Regulations and Part P of the Building Regulations. Elite Power have over 20 years experience in the industry and our electricians are 17th Edition qualified. Any rewire work undertaken will come with an EIC report, test certificate and all the necessary Part P Building Regulation notifications required for new installations.
