Planning electrics in an extension
Adding an extension to your home is an increasingly popular choice for Huddersfield homeowners. An extension allows you to stay in a home and area you love without compromising on space. Your extension can have many intended uses and each extension is unique. Perhaps you want a larger kitchen, a guest suite or maybe a home office. The electrics in your extension will need to reflect your specific use and be tailored accordingly. An experienced electrician will work with you and your builder to create an electrical installation for you extension that meets all your needs. They will ensure you have sufficient sockets and position lighting in the right places so you can use your new extension effectively. If your electrics are poorly planned, you may find your new extension can be a source of frustration as you hunt for a socket to use!
Your electrician will also look at your current electrical system to ensure they can handle the additional demands of the extension. Sometimes a new fuse board or consumer unit will be needed to increase capacity. It is also worth considering the age and condition of the wiring in the rest of your property. If your wiring will need replacing soon, then it may be advisable to rewire whilst the extension electrics are underway to minimise further disruption. By choosing an experienced electrician you can be sure that all possibilities will be considered before work begins and that there will be no expensive surprises along the way.
Choosing an electrician for your extension
A new extension is a huge and exciting project to undertake and will involve multiple trades working together to create your new space. You will want to find tradespeople who are adept at working together and have experience of working alongside others. JP Electrical have worked on numerous extension projects and understand that clear communication is key to successfully working with other trades. When installing the electrics in an extension we liaise with the other trades involved to ensure work is completed in a timely fashion.
Each area of your extension project will need to comply with the relevant building regulations. All electrical work must comply with Part P of the building regulations. As such electrical work in an extension must be carried out by a competent, registered electrician. They can self-certify the work and notify your local council control body. Registered electricians will also be fully insured, giving you additional peace of mind.
