Whether you want an outdoor light as an aesthetic feature or to improve your security, there are a few things to consider before you install one. You need to keep the local building and electrical codes in mind and make sure you have enough space to mount the fixture. You also need to find a power source to tap into.
Since the installation of an outdoor light involves working with electricity and your home’s wiring, it’s best to get a Part P qualified electrician to help you. They’ll do the work safely and in line with the latest regulations.
Your electrician will check if the mounting height and location correspond with the local building and electrical codes. They’ll switch off the main power and isolate the circuit. They’ll feed the cable through, connect it to the right terminals and place the light in position. After installing the switch and turning the power back on, they’ll test your new light and all its features before they go.
Only a Part P qualified electrician is certified to work with electricity in and around your house. With hundreds of these professionals on our platform, you don’t have to spend hours searching for someone in your area. Just tell us where you are and we’ll match you with a Local Hero in minutes.
