Internal Sockets

Older properties were not designed for all the gadgets that come with modern living. That is why you’ll find most older properties will only have one or two sockets per room. To get round this, people start using extension leads to increase the number of appliances that they can plug into a wall socket.

However, although there is space to plug in four appliances, this does not mean it is always safe to do so. Overloading a socket can lead to overheating and possibly cause a fire.

If you regularly use extension leads in your home, perhaps you ought to consider having additional sockets installed so that you aren’t running the risk of overloading. Elite Power’s experienced domestic electricians can visit your home to discuss your requirements with you and advise as to the best solution within your budgetary needs.
