Probably a lesser problem in the UK because our winters are less cold than in many parts of the USA, our electrical boxes are smaller and less numerous, and our walls are more solid.

Still worth considering though.

Think twice about applying extra thermal insulation in or around electrical boxes, remembering that UK regulations allow much higher cable loadings, and thus higher operating temperatures, than are allowed in the USA.

If designing my own home I would place electrical outlets on inside walls so far as possible.
