The Process of new socket installation
Planning the Placement: New sockets can replace old ones in the same spot or be positioned in new/additional locations as needed.
Power Shutdown: Prior to starting the work, the power supply to the installation area must be turned off for safety. This is usually done at the fuse box or circuit breaker.
Preparing the Surface: For new installations, a hole might be necessary in the wall to accommodate the new socket. A wire may also need to be routed from the power source to the new socket location. Wiring the Socket: Our electrician will connect the wires to the new socket, which include a live wire (brown), a neutral wire (blue), and an earth wire (green/yellow).
Socket Fixation: Once the wires are connected, the socket is securely attached to the wall. Our electrician will ensure all screws are tightened and the socket is level.
Testing: With power restored, the socket undergoes thorough testing to confirm proper wiring and safety for use.
