Home renovation

During a home renovation or as part of developing a property, the socket situation should be considered. This is because it is always easier to plan and fit all additional sockets at the same time. It will save you time and possibly money. As a result, you should consider carefully the number of sockets you will need in each room and always include two additional sockets, as it is much more beneficial to have extra than not enough.


Having said that, retrofitting sockets can be a possibility, by adding sockets onto an existing circuit ring. To make sure that this is safe and legal, contact a professional and qualified electrician to retrofit your additional sockets. This will keep you and your property safe, and prevent electrical fires or shocks from occurring through faulty installation.
