    Hi I wondered how much it would be for 4 new spot lights in my bathroom? I have a single light at the minute

    Asked by Aimee on 18th Jul 2019

    Due to renovations in my home, I will need some additional electrical sockets installed in a bedroom. Currently we have electrical sockets on the wall directly opposite where we want the new electrical sockets. The room itself is approximately 9ft squared. Is this sort of installation something I can do myself and if so, what considerations will I need to take into account? Could I install the new sockets and use a connection to the existing sockets for the power and will it be safe? I want to be very sure that everything will be safe. Any advice from electricians with experience of this type of scenario would be appreciated! Many Thanks John

    I would like to install more switches at two different doorways within the same large room. Ideally both switches could be used independently of each other without any conflict. Is it feasible for me to install the additional switch and make adjustments by myself or is this more for a professional electrician to complete? In either case, is it likely that I will need to repaint or plaster around the switches afterwards? Any advice on this project would be great!

    Hi, Keeping it short here, I had a bottomless hole which I filled in with expanding foam with no issues. However, under that foam is some wires I wish to add a backbox and cover that with a blanking plate (So, it will act as a wire junction box) but how can I insert a backbox into foam? I have had two ideas 1, cut a hole and glue the backbox into it or 2, remove the foam and start again but this time was holding the backbox in place as I foam around it. Thanks!

    I have added a new double socket above an original one, and now it's time to plaster in the gap (which was used to get cables in), but do I need to trunk the wires before plaster them? I get mixed answers on this topic. And if so, what sort of trunking should use. Thank you!

    Hello I am moving home soon and will be brining my electric cooker to the new house. Do I need a qualified electrician to disconnect in my old house and reconnect the cooker in the new house, or would I be able to do this myself?
