Your Edinburgh Electrician’s Guide to Extension Electrics

Whether you are looking at adding more living space to your existing Edinburgh home or looking at purchasing a property which requires renovation, you will require the services of a fully qualified & certified Edinburgh electrician.

Any renovation work you are looking to undertake will surely add value to your property but projects of this nature are big jobs and taking into account the nature of the work involved, they can also be disruptive. Getting a trusted Edinburgh electrician on board at the earliest point of your project planning will help to ensure that your renovation runs smoothly and stays on track & on budget.

When first approaching your project, booking in an electrical project survey with one of our  expert Edinburgh electrician team will help us to ascertain what your additional power and lighting requirements are. It could be the case that your additional lighting and power requirements can be supplied using your existing circuits or it may very well be the case that a new consumer unit is required. Either way this is something that our Edinburgh electrician team can advise you on. As we fully NICEIC registered Edinburgh electricians, consulting with our team before the commencement of any electrical refurbishment or replacement work will help to confirm that you are working with the correct and most appropriate advice applicable to your project.

If you are looking as part of your project, to install any extra showers or indeed baths within a loft conversion or additional bathroom, then extra electrical precautions are required. One of our Edinburgh electricians can go through all these requirements with you and this is especially important as water and electricity can be such a dangerous mix. Due to this dangerous combination, electrical bathroom installations are considered special locations and are subject to extra safety checks and regulations. By using one of our Edinburgh electrician team here at DC Electrical Edinburgh, will ensure that a NICEIC domestic electrical installer will carry out the work on your home project to the highest professional standard.

Whatever the size of your extension or renovation project, it will be extremely likely that building regulations will be required for some aspects of the build and certainly for the electrical work. One of the added benefits of using an NICEIC Edinburgh electrician firm such as ourselves is the help we can give you all paperwork required when undertaking an extension or renovation project at your Edinburgh home.

Due to the disruptive nature of the work involved with a home rewire, it may be a good idea to ascertain at the time you are planning your extension or renovation if the rest of your property’s electrics are up to modern requirements and safety standards. It may be the most cost effective solution for a full or partial rewire at your Edinburgh property to take place at the same time as any other building work in order to minimise disruption and save money in the long run.

As Edinburgh’s premier electrician team, we strive to be the number one choice for all domestic and commercial electrical work across the Edinburgh city region so get in today and let us be part of your next project.
