Being a property developer comes with many responsibilities and multiple factors to take into consideration. As a property developer, you want your property to have great aesthetic appeal, drawing in potential buyers or tenants. Alongside this, it is also important to consider the practical elements of property development which are essential for a functional living space. One of these vital factors is home electrics. Do the electrics in the property run smoothly? Is the house and/or flat energy efficient? These are important questions to ask yourself when developing a property.
At the Handy Squad, our electrician London can help with all your electrical needs and queries, so you can stop scanning the internet for “electrician near me” and instead give us a call! Here, we have put together some of our best tips and tricks for preparing your property’s home electrics.
Give attention to plug sockets
When building a property from scratch, you will have to assess which areas in your house require a plug socket. How many do you need? What style do you require? These might seem like small touches that don’t matter too much but they can have a huge impact on the buyer’s living experience.
For instance, in the bedrooms, think of the key areas where a plug socket is needed – near the bed, by the mirror, next to the bedroom furniture – this is particularly important if you are staging the property for a show home. At the Handy Squad, you can hire an electrician to install plug sockets for your every need. Whether that be USB ports, rose gold double sockets or simply replacing/installing some wall sockets, we are on hand to help.
How can I make my development energy efficient?
Another element that is becoming more prominent than ever is creating an energy efficient home. With energy bill prices on the rise and climate change becoming a growing issue, this is a vital aspect to review. An excellent starting point could be simply using energy efficient light bulbs to bring down costs and usage. We can change light bulbs as well as help with larger jobs like light fittings and installations. Not only this, but by connecting plug sockets to an outlet, this makes it easier to switch off appliances at the end of a day. Rather than individually switching off every energy source in the property, you can do it all with the click of a button and our electricians can install a suitable outlet to help.
Types of lighting
When developing a property, you will need to factor in which lighting you want in each room. Looking for a bathroom light pull switch? Looking to add outdoor lighting? Perhaps you want to add motion sensor lights in the bathrooms? Maybe you want to add beauty lights in the bedroom. There are thousands of different types of lighting that you can choose from.
We also offer electrical installation condition reports, which are highly recommended for property developers and landlords (both existing and first time), particularly if the electrics have not been tested in the last 5 years. This work is carried out by fully qualified Part P 17th Edition electricians, providing Electrical Safety Certificates.
Electrical installation condition reports are an important legal requirement which our team can help to complete, preparing your property for sale. We also offer this service for businesses, commercial properties, and residential customers too, so if this is something you are interested in, give us a call today on 0800-0-12-12-12.
Not only this but our team of London handyman can help with smaller odd jobs like cable tidying, ensuring your property looks pristine and tidy. Why not get our team to install new cabling? We can hide TV cables in the walls for example or advise you on other cable-free options to help create this sleek, fresh look.
