6 reasons to think over the electrician beforehand.
Why is it so important to create an electrical plan for the repair?
Save repair time
Plan layout of sockets, switches and lighting is better to think in advance. This will help to save repair time – builders will lay the wiring during roughing works and you will not have to wait for delays.
If you do not plan the plan in advance, the deadline will have to be postponed and the builders should be paid for downtime. Even worse, install sockets and switches, when the finishing is ready – the work will have to be done again. And for this, too, you need to pay.
Install the Smart Home system
We used to think of “Smart House” as a system of the future, not applicable to a standard apartment. This is a common misconception. Even in a typical apartment, there are many scenarios that can be controlled by several buttons from a mobile phone or tablet.
What is the advantage of the Smart Home system?
- It’s comfortable. One system manages all the rooms in the apartment or house.
- You and your house are safe. Simulate the presence of a person in the house when going on a long vacation or turn on the alarm.
- It’s economical. You can reduce the cost of electricity and heat consumption.
- This is modern. Open and close the curtains without getting up from the couch, or adjust the brightness of the lighting with a single button – this and much more is really possible with the help of the Smart Home system.
Conveniently arrange furniture
The switch behind the cabinet or the socket behind the cabinet in the kitchen. Familiar? If you plan the arrangement of switches and outlets in advance with furniture arrangement, such inconvenience will not be.
And think about household scenarios
Consider the location of outlets and switches based on your lifestyle. Where do you read? Where is it more convenient for you to use a hairdryer? Do you want to get out of the sofa every time to turn off or turn on the light?
There will be many such questions. Ask them yourself and family members and draw on the plan the desired location of the electrician. Lay the number of outlets and switches with a margin, so as not to spoil the interior with extension cords.
