FAQs

How to add new power sockets to a room?

If you’re thinking about adding new power sockets to your room, then you’ve come to the right place! This task can be a very tricky one especially if you don’t know how to go about it. If you don’t have the skills or experience necessary to pull this off, then we’d strongly recommend you hire the services of qualified and licensed electrician who can guarantee the best results for help. In this guide, we’re going to take you through the numerous steps you’d have to take to make sure your new power sockets is added successfully. Let’s take a look!

  • All the power to the working area at the primary electrical panel should be turned off.
  • Identify the cut area for individual electrical box.
  • Pilot saw blade by drilling corner holes
  • Drill into framing for wiring, if required
  • Connect electrical wires to the electrical panel from the outlet box holes, pulling four feet through the wall.
  • Attach white wires to silver screws as well as black wires to brass screws and also the ground wire.
  • Incorporate electrical tape to tape around the box
  • Connect the box to the wall and cover with the outlet plate
  • Carry out the process for individual outlet needed
  • De-energize the entire electrical panel by shutting off the house’s main breaker
  • Fit an arc volt breaker by connecting white and black wire to the breaker
  • Connect white wire from the new breaker directly onto the neutral bar of the electrical panel
  • Finally, you can turn the main breaker back on.

 

How much is a new fuse board?

Also commonly referred to as a consumer unit in recent times, a fuse box is responsible for controlling and allocating of the electricity in your home. They hold the power any time there’s an overload in one of the circuits which in turn, prevents fire as well as electrical damage. Fuse boxes are often incorporated in homes but consumer units are very rapidly replacing them. Therefore, when your fuse box breaks down, it’s always a smart decision to replace them with consumer units due to the fact that they’re safer and also comply with building regulations while also being a lot easier to use. If you’re extending your home, upgrading to a larger capacity model enables you to make use of more power with the power overloading. In this post, we’re going to cover the amount you’re expected to pay to replace or install a new fuse box or consumer unit as well as the factors that may affect the cost.

 

For a 10 way dual RCD consumer unit, the typical cost range will be between £250 to £600, meanwhile 15 way dual RCD consumer unit should cost within the range of £300 to £700. Overall, the smaller the house, the fewer the circuits that’ll be needed, hence the difference in the aforementioned prices.

 

There a number of factors that can affect the cost of replacing a fuse box. These factors includes the the size of the house in question ( the bigger the house , the more the circuits there are and the bigger the fuse box needed), the location ( for instance, places like London where there are higher demands are likely to be more expensive than other regions ).

Does rewiring a house add value?

Rewriting a residence adds so much greater than financial value. It includes comfort, safety, resale value when you concern sell it. If you have 2 homes in the very same road both of very same dimension, comparable spec as well as style yet one has electrical wiring from 1970/1980's and also the various other one has been rewired in the last 5years it will be picked up on study the potential customers and also their solicitors will undoubtedly try to obtain a ₤ 5-10k reduction in cost due to the fact it will require rewriting. So although no financial gain will certainly be seen quickly when it comes to sell it will be self noticeable plus your home will be extra attracting clients.

 

Rewiring a residence will add worth when you come to sell because when a land surveyor involves check your home and sees that he is most likely to state this to there customer which subsequently after that makes the house better. Most individuals when buying a residence would like to know has it been re-wired lately as well as this results from the high price included and also the upheaval that is really felt when a house has to be re-wired. But in general I would say that rewiring a home if it requires it is most definitely a worthwhile task obtaining done.

how to rewire a house?

For most homeowners, rewiring a house is always a sore subject they’d prefer to avoid especially when they think of the expenses they’d have to incur or the mess and complexity that the project involves. However, this is a subject we’d all have to face sooner or later as an old wiring poses a lot of drawbacks, while an improper wiring can also prove to be more expensive and even cause more damage as it can lead to not only electrical shorts but also electrical fires. When a wire triggers a spark or a current overload, this can cause fire and the entire house may be down in ashes within a couple of minutes. Hence, one of the several reasons why house rewiring is just too important to ignore.

In this FAQ, we’re going to take you through the house rewiring process so as to ensure that your project is done to perfection. However, if you do not feel confident enough to pull this off, we’d strongly recommend you get in touch with a reliable electrical professional who can guarantee that a safe and effective work is done.

  • Firstly, you’d have to upgrade the main service panel to a minimum of 100 amps
  • Fit dedicated circuits in the service panel for all the home’s major appliances.
  • Allow for a space of about 6 to 8 feet between electrical outlets throughout the house in order to cut out the need to run extension cords which could be a fire hazard.
  • Install only three-prong type to avoid electrical shocks when fitting new outlets.
  • Using ground fault circuit interrupters, fit outlets in the bathrooms, kitchen as well as outdoors. These outlets will shut themselves out so as to prevent electrical shock when wet.
