Hi Forrest Fire

We certainly would not recommend powder in a living space, a dry water mist would be a lot more appropriate (good for all common risks incl 230V electrical equipment with minimum damage to room). Not sure if I would go as far as to throw all existing powder extinguishers out, though. Maybe more a case of replacement when it comes to 5 years of age rather than re-filling at that point.
