Replace Double Adaptors & Multiboxes by Adding More Power Points

WARNING = DOUBLE ADAPTORS – MULTIBOXES

I go into homes all the time and see multiboxes running multiple appliances and double adapters plugged into each other and then plugged into 1 power point.

Quite often there are extension cords running off through doorways (or secured around the door frame using household pins) into other rooms with another multibox plugged in. This is a recipe for disaster.

When too many things are plugged into one outlet you start overloading the whole electrical system.

Overloading and loose connections are two major causes of electrical fires in New Zealand. The more connections there are between the switchboard and the appliance the more chance of overheating and then catching fire.

You only have your loved ones and friends in your home so why risk it.

The solution:

  • Swap that single power point for a double or quad power point.
  • Install another power point where you need one and eliminate the extension cord.
  • Have an electrician check to see the fuses or circuit breakers are rated to do there correct job.
  • Balance electrical loads so not too much is on one circuit
  • If you use an extension cord don’t use it rolled up as this causes overheating as well
