Wiring and installing all the electrical elements and outlets for a new home requires careful planning and the services of a licensed electrician. The electricity for your home is sourced from the mains, which is typically accessed via a cable from the street, where the meter is situated. It then is routed to an electric panel or switchboard in the home. This contains contact breakers, fuses and a safety switch. The contact breakers are designed to protect the wiring in your home from surges or leakages, while the safety switch is there to shut down the system to protect you or your family from electrocution. The electricity is then routed via the switchboard to all rooms in the house.
An electrician can customise the wiring and power points in your home to your specific needs. This may include advanced wiring systems for your home/office or facilities for a home entertainment centre. Planning and consultation with your builder and electrician is essential to ensure the layout is to your specification.
