Delivering the Complete Domestic Electrical Service Solution
Whether it’s a new build or an older property, inside or outside, we will guide you through all the practical and legislative considerations for your lighting installations.
Firstly, if your home pre-dates the 1960’s, your lighting installations are likely out of date and not fit for purpose. Domestic lighting circuits did not have Earthing until 1967. Earthing is necessary to prevent shocks and fire hazards, providing a path to automatically disconnect dangerous currents. Since 2005, all domestic electrical work must comply with part ‘P’ of Building Regulations. In order to comply, all electrical work, including hard-wired lighting, must be carried out or tested by registered professionals. Lighting circuits in modern properties are required for each floor and are separate from the main circuit. Consequently, if this is not the case in your home, you may need to consider re-wiring.
It is useful to talk to a qualified electrician before you begin upgrading your lighting. A professional can talk you through the placement of your fixtures and fittings, how many switches and what design options are available. In addition, we will advise on how you can keep your installation and maintenance costs to a minimum. Perhaps you want discreet undercabinet lighting, mood lighting, wall lights or a mixture of different installations throughout your home.
