“The Electrical Safety Council has provided this interactive socket overload calculator.
They created the calculator following concerns raised by Fire & Rescue Services about the risks associated with householders overloading their electrical sockets. They have tested the calculator with a number of FRS and the response from them has been fantastic. Feedback included: “It looks good and will be really useful for sharing with people – we’ve found it an incredibly hard issue to explain to people in words alone. ”
