The step of preparing the basics of electrical connections is one of the most important steps in finishing the house, because any mistake in it will result in catastrophic problems later on, and may force us to incur double costs to repair it.
In order to ensure the completion of the electrical installation in an ideal manner, the decorator, Sayed Wael, gave “Youm Seven” some tips that you should know when installing the electrical connections to the house.
Locating pieces of furniture
The decorator said: “It is necessary to determine the places of the pieces of furniture, such as the bed, the sofa, the place of the TV, and the air conditioning, and it will be a horse cam. Will the gypsum board work or not? For example, when installing electricity in the bedroom, the electricity must be placed to the left and right of the bed, for the lampshades or charging the mobile phone, and so on. One of the ways to use it, as well as in the salon room and the kitchen, and if you make a gypsum board with spots, it must be located from the first, because it must be sanded with a hose over the spots during the foundation process to prevent cracking afterwards.
Purchase of materials
The decorator indicated the necessity of purchasing materials from a trusted store, especially wires, and making sure that they are original, so as not to cause problems inside the house.
He continued: “The electrician begins to break in order to install the electrical cans, and after that, he extends the hoses and begins to make a network between the cans and some of them, and tightens a wire between them, and collects the panel and installs the switches of the main panel, and a wire outlet works in any place that needs a wire, like the bathroom mirror and the cooker hood.”
Tips when installing electricity
Tips to make sure the electrician works
The decorator said: “You must make sure that the lower cans are all at the same level, even in the eye, and you must follow the electrician while he is working. One leans over the other, and it will not look nice.”
And when buying wires, it is necessary to know that the air conditioners’ wire is preferably 6 mm, the socket wires are 4 mm or 6 mm, the sockets and switches are 3 mm, and the spots are 1.5 or 2 mm.”
Lighting Distribution Review
And the decorator continued: “You must make sure that the lighting is worn as you want, while making sure that the cans and hoses are not protruding from the old oyster and are well-installed, so that when you bring an oyster bleacher, he works as a bleacher in the place of the cracker. In a red brick apartment, we have to remove the oyster bleacher to make something called “poog,” which is a rectangle that is made with a mixture of mortar in order to make the surroundings equal.
Kitchen and bathroom electricity
Concerning the kitchen and bathroom, the decorator said: “Kitchen and bathroom cans prefer not to be installed, because if you want to move them after that at the time of finishing the apartment, making sure of the level of the electrical cans, and the level is the height of the can from the floor, the keys are 90 cm from the floor, and the bottom sockets 30 cm from the floor, wall panels 180 cm from the floor, and cabinets and kitchen and bathroom switches 120 cm from the floor.
He added, “If you do a jacuzzi, you need to know the electrician so that you can use his electrical outlet and forget the ground wire, and the benefit of the individual is that if there is electricity that leaks into the jacuzzi and a person is in it, the electricity will not be connected.”
He continued: “You must check the locations of the showers, telephones, sockets, and switches, with checking the prices of raw materials, and knowing the opinion of the electrician or engineer in the wires, to ensure their quality.”
