Outdoor Power & Lighting
Outdoor & Garden Lighting and Power
There’s nothing like carefully placed, professionally fitted lighting to help you make the most of your garden, whatever the season. And lighting not only adds another visual dimension, it increases security too.
Pennington’s NICEIC approved electricians can help with planning and installing light and power in your garden, whether it’s for outside lighting or to bring power to a hot tub or home garden office.
Lighting and Security
Newly installed lighting with modern specifications improves the look of your garden and makes it a more versatile space. Outdoor lighting with motion or light sensitive sensors can add considerable security, while an outdoor lit wall can set off the rest of the garden for maximum impact.
Outdoor and garden lighting also now benefits from LED bulbs, for economy and longevity. With expert advice, garden lighting ideas gleaned from wide experience, and practical solutions for outdoor electrics, Pennington’s will be happy to provide a free quotation for what you have in mind.
Garden Offices and Cabins, Garden Office Pods
Garden offices are now a far cry from a converted shed. And, to receive the full benefit from your additional space, proper lighting and heating will make your new office more comfortable and increase its usability – and the independence of whoever is using it. And if your new office arrives ready made, pod-style, it will still need connecting to the mains with a power source installed to meet all current regulations. Call us to explain what you need and we’ll advise on the best options.
Hot Tubs, Sheds and Outside Sockets
Like an independent garden room, many other outdoor features need electricity. Whether it is a hot tub, a pond, a shed that needs better lighting, or simply a couple of new outdoor sockets, Pennington’s know which safety issues need consideration, such as weather conditions, distance between the mains and sockets, proper coverings, safety measures and even the depth and type of cables being used to supply the electricity. Whatever your requirements, we’ll provide accurate advice, and the correct equipment in the right place at a fair price.
Part P of the Building Regulations requires anyone intending to have any electrical work installed outside to notify the Building Control Authorities. They must use a Part P registered electrician to carry out the work and heavy fines can be incurred if electrical works do not meet the standards that have been set out.
Pennington’s are fully qualified to carry out all outside and garden electrical work, and we’ll also know when regulations change or are updated. If you’re planning to install or replace outdoor lighting or power, please give us a call. We would be happy to visit your home to see what work you need.
