Electric Solutions for the Outdoors
The outdoors brings its own challenge – the weather.
Outdoor electric installations must be carefully planned and installed. When considering your plans for the garden, be it large or small, remember that as far as your outdoor electrics are concerned the garden is the most dangerous place in the home environment. According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA), around 300,000 people will be injured in their gardens this year and a significant proportion will be related to electrical injuries. External electrics are particularly hazardous due to the presence of water, damp, humidity, lack of clothing, and the extremes of weather, which can make equipment deteriorate faster.
Whether it’s power to your shed, garage or water feature, the latest LED lighting in your decking with wireless remote switching, or simply adding a single security light to your home, Bayfield Electrical can advise you of all the available options and provide a solution to meet your needs with full certification.
How Part P Affects you & the plans for your garden
Part P of the building regulations now effectively bans garden enthusiasts from installing their own electrics in ponds, sheds, garages and greenhouses, which means that all electrical work in the garden must be carried out by a government-approved electrician registered with the NICEIC.
According to the regulations, gardeners are allowed to maintain and replace existing equipment. However, because the risk of electric shock is far greater outside, a government-approved electrician who can provide a certificate, such as one registered by the NICEIC, must undertake all other work. That’s where Bayfield Electrical can help you.
Part P applies to garden lighting, pond lighting, pond pumps, swimming pools and saunas, along with outbuildings such as sheds, detached garages and greenhouses.
