boiler circuit

Postby m1691 » Tue Jul 10, 2012 5:50 pm

Used to have a boiler and immersion heater but now only smaller boiler. There are 3 outlets next to boiler, two used by it but the third one, also of blanked type with fuse, is not in use. Can I convert this third outlet to a normal switched 3 pin plug suitable for plugging in a deepfreeze. They are all on a circuit breaker 15A circuit as far as i can see as they are all in the boiler room which had nothing else in and all next to each other and the fuse box says immersion and heating for that circuit.

In all probablity yes but you need to get someone in to check the wiring behind the faceplate.
