Adding more sockets

Postby Basil20 » Tue May 15, 2007 6:44 pm

At the moment i have two double sockets in my attic room, i want to add four more doubles to the room,
the sockets in the room are protected by a 16 amp fuse, it is a radial circuit, so can i keep the 16 amp fuse & radial circuit, or will i have to change to a 32 amp fuse & ring circuit.
There would only be a computer, printer, T.v and three table lamps in the room.
