Extension Electrical Advice from your Edinburgh Electrician

You love your property but need more space, it’s a common issue faced by many Edinburgh homeowners. Extending your property or renovating up into your loft area is a popular solution which will not only enhance your living space but also add value to your property too. We are helping more and more customers across the Edinburgh region with the electrical side of their home improvement projects. Having an expert electrical engineer on your property project team is a must and our fully certified experts electricians here at DC Electrical Edinburgh are only too happy to help.

There is a strong chance that your new extension or loft space will require quite a lot of electrical work, in some cases a full or partial or home rewire may be the best solution. A full home rewire, while disruptive, is a good choice if you are looking at upgrading your current electrical system at the same time as completing your extension or loft conversion project.  We know renovation work of any kind can be disruptive but working with our expert electrician team can help deliver your project on budget and on time while keeping disruption to a minimum wherever possible. Planning is the key so by consulting with your expert electrician team prior to starting any project is key to setting budget and project goals going forward. This planning stage is also the best time for Edinburgh homeowners to consult with the relevant authorities and confirm if their planned works fall under permitted development regulations or would require planning permission. This planning stage is also a great time to discuss with your Edinburgh electrician what extra power and lighting requirements your project will have. One of our Edinburgh electrician team can conduct a visual survey based on a property tour and advise if a new consumer unit would be required or if any additional power and lighting loads can be routed through your existing circuits. Advice from an expert Edinburgh electrician is especially important if you are looking at installing a new bathroom or shower room in your renovated space.

 It is imperative that all electrical work carried out by your expert Edinburgh electrician complies with building regulations. This is of course something one of our Edinburgh electrician team can advise on. As fully accredited NICEIC electrical contractors, we are able to self certify any electrical work we complete for you and contact your local building control if required too. Once your electrical project is complete you will be issued with a  Building Regulations Compliance Certificate. This confirms that all the work has been carried out to the required standard and is especially important if you are ever looking to rent out or sell your house in the future.
