How much would it cost to re wire a 2 bedroom house in Dagenham essex please
Currently vacant but bathroom work ongoing.
Move in date 12/10. What work complte by then.
How do you wire a intermediate switch iv got 3 door ways 2 enter a room, all with I switch at each door way all to operate the same light.
To add an extra light to a room, I assume you will need to chisel out a channel from the existing light switch in order to lay the extra switch cable.. Is there an easy way to do this without damaging the existing switch cable or is it best to just assume you're going to damage it and replace it?
i've had an outside light installed recently. However i used a 40 watt light bulb and hence it's not that bright. Is there a wattage that is recommended for an outside light? I was thinking of replacing it with a 100 watt bulb. I've looked at the manual and the maximum wattage is 100 watts.
I've just bought a 1970s house and am doing some refurb work, which will include new spotlights etc.
I was wondering whether it is likely that a 1970s house would require rewiring and, if this is likely, how I go about instructing a PIR and who is registered to carry it out (Wokingham, Berks area).
Thanks for your help
We want an bathroom extractor fan fitted but our flat is 4th floor, is this possible at reasonable cost?
We need an extractor as severe condensation is causing damp in the ceiling (small bathroom with shower, windows double glazed). Is it possible to fit the exterior part of an extractor fan by leaning out of the window perhaps, i.e. without having to pay for scaffolding? How much would this cost? Thanks
