Besides improving the style of the room, additional power points are also an added benefit from an electrical safety point of view. Extra power points eliminate the need for power leads. These are often exposed and can have dangerous consequences such as electric shock. Another advantage of installing additional power points is that it helps to spread out the electrical stress of the circuit between more power points. This means than you are not concentrating the electrical load on a smaller number of power points. This reduces the chances of blown fuses and fire hazards.

Causes for faulty power points
There are several reasons that could cause your power points to become faulty. In some cases, you would be able to rectify the faulty power point without the services of an electrician. However, it is important to ensure that you turn off the power to the particular circuit on which you are planning to work on. Some of these situations are discussed here.
It could be that the circuit breaker has tripped. There are occasions when circuit breakers seem as though they are in the “on” position but they have actually been tripped. Once you have located the correct circuit breaker for the particular power point, try turning it off and on again to see if that solves the problem. If you are unsure as to which circuit breaker is the correct one for that power point, then it is advisable to simply turn off all circuit breakers and then turn them on again and check whether the issue is solved.
Power Point Failures
Your power point could have become damaged due to a ground fault. One of the most common reasons for the occurrence of a ground fault is water. For example, if someone sprinkles water onto an electrical component by accident or in case of rain. Such an instance could result in a ground fault which could take several days to dry out.
Another common reason for faulty power points is simply the deterioration due to usage over time. Each time that you plug in and unplug appliances from the socket, the power point deteriorates. Over time, this degradation continues and results in the power point eventually becoming damaged after years of usage. Therefore it is recommended to replace power points every few years, before they reach this defective state.
In some cases, power points will not work due to loose or badly connected wires. This is even more likely in the case of power points which have not been mounted correctly. When your power point works only sporadically and at other times it gives trouble, this could indicate that the wires are loose and need to be tightened. As a result of this kind of wiring, your power points could become overheated. This could even result in sparks in some cases.
