Edinburgh Electrician’s Guide to Kitchen Rewiring

With the electrical safety of our customers being our utmost priority, making sure that all residential and commercial properties in the Edinburgh region are safe and compliant is our number one aim.

Did you know that more than half of all accidental house fires start in the kitchen? Mixing elements such as flexible cables, electricity and water can prove to be a dangerous  combination which is why it is more important than ever to make sure that you get an expert Edinburgh electrician to work on all elements of your kitchen home rewire project.

Why would you need to embark on a kitchen rewire at your Edinburgh property? If you are looking at making changes to your kitchen layout, adding power sockets, adding in LED down lighters or looking to install some future proof SMART home services, then it is likely that a full or partial kitchen rewire may be required. You may also have an issue with your existing home rewire system and electrical installation. These may have begun to deteriorate with age and with use and therefore may not be fully compliant with the most up to date safety regulations.

If there is noticeable damage to sockets or fitting in your kitchen or you have an appliance in your Edinburgh property that is repeatedly tripping out then we strongly recommend having your electrics checked as soon as possible. This is a situation where having a trusted, expert Edinburgh electrician on standby is an essential.

If you are looking at embarking on a kitchen refurbishment, a partial or full kitchen rewire may be the best and most cost effective option rather than looking at trying to add to your existing electrical system. Kitchens are classed a high risk location in terms of electrical or require work so it is always imperative that any work undertaken is done so by a fully qualified and certified Edinburgh electrician. 

There are certain aspects of electrical work carried out during a kitchen rewire that will require building control notification. This is to ensure that the correct and appropriate safety standards are met.
