Naturally when thinking of any bathroom upgrade or renovation work, your mind automatically turns to plumbers; however having an expert Edinburgh electrician on your project team is vital in terms of safety and compliance. There really is a surprising amount of electrical work required for any bathroom remodel project, even more so when you are looking at upgrading to a higher specification and adding in any SMART tech elements. Electrical showers require their own circuit and as such, most have some of the highest electrical demand out of all of your household appliances. When putting together your bathroom budget, it is wise to factor in shower installation costs. Your Edinburgh electrician can advise you but your existing consumer unit may need upgrading to make sure that it is fully compliant with the most up to date safety standards. Any alterations to existing circuits may require building control notification. This would ensure that all bathroom rewiring and electrical installation work would be carried out to the highest standard by your local expert Edinburgh electrician.
