Now that we have all been home a bit more with the cooler weather, have you been staring at those four walls wishing you change a few things? Now is the time to start planning that renovation and thinking about your electrical needs.
Planning out your electrical needs and wants before your renovation with a professional electrician ensures your needs are ticked off, wants are factored in, and other elements you may not have considered (USB outlets on the kitchen bench for charging smart devices!) are discussed.
When planning your home renovation, taking your outdated electrical into account in the planning stages ensures your updated living space will be more comfortable, enjoyable and usable for years to come.
Factors to consider when renovating your home:
1/ Electrical outlets
Properly placed outlets can make a world of difference. Imaging having USB outlets beside your bed to charge your phones, wall mounting your smart TV to gain some space back in your living
room or selling your extension cords as you no longer need to use them since you have enough outlets!
2/ Smart home automation
The list is endless for adding smart home technology. You can go full-tilt, adding everything at once during your renovation or add smart devices into your home slowly. Whatever you prefer can be done if you make sure your home is electrically set up for smart home automation. Adding extra media devices such as smart TVs, automated lights, or a smart thermostat are easy adjustments you can make to improve your home.
Our homes are not only our most significant investment; they contain almost everything we care about – our people, our fur babies, our ‘stuff’. Adding extra lighting outdoors, a smart doorbell or a CCTV camera, you can boost your home security quickly and effectively.
One thing we find homeowners don’t think is how unsafe outdated electricity is. Electrical circuits have a finite capacity. When you exceed the capacity of your electrical circuits, you experience problems such as blackouts and electrical fires. Upgrading your circuitry and electricity means your home can handle more appliances, smart devices, not to mention preventing electrical issues.
