What do electrical installation services include?
Electrical installation services include all the tasks needed to install electrical wiring into your home or property. This service is indispensable to installing wiring during home construction, renovation, or even adding a new feature like a home theatre.
The service includes following the wiring layout, installing junction boxes, making holes in walls or ceilings as needed, inserting and connecting wires, securing the wires and testing the connections.
Following the wiring layout
Your electrician follows the wiring layout set by your electric service company and your commercial or residential electrical contractors. As this is approved and already complies with state regulations, building codes and safety standards, your hired expert follows this to the letter. They can use the layout to plan the installation and implement it in the fastest, safest and most efficient way possible.
Installing junction boxes
Most rooms of your home or property require several electrical outlets. Installing junction boxes make it possible to multiply a single power conduit into several connections. Before the drywall panels are in place in the rooms, your electrician attaches the appropriate type of junction boxes. These can be installed on the wall’s timber frames at the prescribed height or in ceilings or rafters as indicated by the wiring layout. Your hired electrical expert can secure these boxes with their included screws or other fastening equipment.
Cutting holes for wiring
With the wiring layout as a guide, your electrician cuts or drills holes to prepare for the wire installation and connection. This can be done throughout the structure or for a specified room or area, depending on the scope of the job.
Inserting and connecting wires
Once the appropriate holes have been cut out or drilled on walls and ceilings, your electrical installation expert proceeds to connect and insert the wires. With the power turned off, they attach the live and neutral wires to the appropriate circuit breaker, main circuit breaker, earthing line and neutral line.
They then plug the individual circuit breaker into the circuit bus and ensure that all connections are snug and secure. On the other end, the wires are pushed through the appropriate holes in the ceilings or walls, then connected to the corresponding junction boxes. These are done for all connections.
Finishing up the wires
After the wires are connected to their corresponding junction boxes, your electrical expert may strip off some of the cable insulation to expose the colored wires. They may install the wires with an excess of 12 centimeters or so for each wire, then strip off the insulation. This enables easier inspection, repairs and future connections. They finish the wire installation by placing connectors on the wires. Some experts may mark or label the wires to make it easier to tell them apart.
