With working from home here to stay for the foreseeable future and all of us spending more time at home and in our gardens than ever before, our expert electrician team have seen first hand the rise in popularity of garden rooms and home office spaces across the Edinburgh region.
Here we can take you through our advice on what to consider and what we feel is worth knowing & bearing in mind from an Edinburgh electrician’s perspective.
Firstly, it is important to remember when pricing your garden room project to remember to account for electrical work and connection when putting together your budget and project plans.
There are many companies now in the Edinburgh area specialising in home office / garden room design & installation. Unless you opt for the full service, turn key installation it is highly likely that you will need to secure an Edinburgh electrician for all subsequent wiring and electrical connection to your mains electricity supply.
There are a number of companies servicing the Edinburgh region that supply garden offices which will be delivered pre wired ready for your Edinburgh electrician to do the rest. These garden office rooms come with electrical sockets and lighting points but you will still require an Edinburgh based electrician to connect, install and test all electrical elements for maximum efficiency and of course safety.
In most cases an armoured cable will carry the electrical supply required from the main fuse box in your property to your garden office. The armoured, heavy duty cable will need burying in a concealed place underground and will be protected, often with a layer of stone and marker system to avoid any accidental digging through at a later stage.
All of this specialist work is of course something one of our expert Edinburgh based electricians can help you with. As well as the mains connection and cabling, one of our expert Edinburgh electrician team will look at adding an earth rod to your outside structure so that the building is fully earthed. Once the cabling is in place and connections are in then all the highest standard safest checks will be completed by one of our Edinburgh based electricians both for building control and of course that DC Electrical peace of mind guarantee. The electrics in every garden room will need to comply with building regulations and we will ensure that one our friendly, expert electrician team will provide everything required to ensure full regulation compliance.
You may be looking at using your garden structure as a gym, an outside bar or a home office but whatever choice the chances are you may require further data cabling for services such as broadband and TV. We can advise you regarding all of these requirements prior to installation to get your job completed efficiently and get your new space up and running as fast as possible.
