You should prepare a work plan first. Without a plan, repairs take place in constant agreements, throwing around the city with the return of goods and the purchase of material. As a result, at the end of the work, depending on the temperament of the owner and the conflict experience of electricians, the parties parted to some extent dissatisfied and unpleasant precipitations from the disputes/scandals. Even a simple plan allows you not to be distracted by the work of electricians.
What is an introductory machine
An input machine is a circuit breaker through which an input cable is connected. It is necessary to switch off the whole power supply in case of accidents, repair work, etc. The automatic feeder is usually installed immediately after the meter. If the automatic inlet dispenser is placed in front of the meter, as in the case of outdoor installation, it must always be sealed. There is a rule: all electrical equipment that is placed after the jukebox is the responsibility of the room owner. And all that is located before the vending machine is the property of the energy supplier.
Advice on the choice of electricians
It is advisable to commission a home electrical repair service. Workers that are working on complex repairs, as a rule, don’t have enough knowledges in some specific directions, because their main volume – finishing. It makes no sense to keep an individual electrician in such teams, as he will be idle to a greater extent. That’s why complex brigades attract electricians from outside or have a compatible electrician in their staff. There are also services that specialize in a large number of works and can deal with such issues as electric repair in a professional manner.
Do not rush to order an electric installation at the beginning of repair. The vast majority of sockets and switches offered by the trade have a single standard for installation. If the plug and socket boxes are installed correctly, you can install any electrical fittings you like in them. Let the electricians first install the boxes and scout the cable. The inside of the socket should be put in place before final painting or gluing of the wallpaper. In this case the frames will fit tightly against the wall and the switches will not “fall off”. The front part of the installation and the frame should usually be installed after all repairs.
Before bidding with teams of electricians the first thing to do is to draw a very detailed plan of placement of all your sockets, switches, chandeliers, boilers, electric ovens, etc. In the plan it is desirable to specify the exact location of each point: the height of the floor and the distance from the nearest wall. It is not necessary to draw on paper placement of wires, electricians will do it themselves. If you think that laying the cable in some place is undesirable, indicate it in the plan. If you have suspended ceilings, it is better to conduct basic communications under the ceiling without laying the cable in ducts: this is a simpler and cheaper way.
Electricians shouldn’t have to fill in ducts after themselves. By default, this is plastering work. Which is quite logical: an electrician can plaster so much that a specialist will then redo it at a double tariff. The more detailed your plan is – the sooner you agree on a price and the less problems you will have in the future. But even if you have a plan and the price is finally agreed – talk about the cost of installation of each unit and cable laying in case of additional work. If you find a quality service, as a result you can expect that the work will be performed responsibly.
