It is cheaper and easier than you think to add additional power sockets in your home
Electrical installations in older properties are often unable to meet the demands of modern living. Their designers simply did not envisage that homeowners would have so many different electrical appliances in their homes in the future. Consequently, plug adapters and extension leads have become a way of life for a lot of households in the UK.
It is both unsightly and dangerous to have extension leads trailing throughout your home; such cables are a trip hazard and are liable to overheating when overloaded, which can cause house fires, especially if they are on a reel and that reel is not totally extended during use. In addition, because extension leads are used to transport power across thoroughfares in your home, they are liable to become crushed or damaged, which can cause the exposure of live parts and increase the risk of fatal electric shocks.
Some Local Authorities predict that up to 10% of house fires are caused by the inappropriate and excessive use of extension cables in domestic properties.
