With an outdoor socket, you no longer have to run extension leads from inside the house when you’re mowing the lawn or drilling outside. If you’re thinking of getting one installed, we recommend asking a Part P qualified electrician to help. They’re certified to work with electricity and will assess the size of your garden or drive and the supporting wall before installing the socket.
Your electrician will also suggest the best type of outdoor socket and make sure the amperage is right. They’ll turn off the main power, place the back box against the wall and mark up where to drill. After attaching the box, they’ll secure the conduit and supply cable and make all the relevant connections. Finally, your electrician will switch the power back on and test your outdoor socket before they go.
If you’re thinking of installing an outdoor socket, you want someone who can do it as quickly as possible and safely too. That means finding a tradesperson that’s local to you. With hundreds of professionals on our platform, we can match you with a Part P qualified electrician in your area in minutes.
You can coordinate diaries and decide on a date that suits you both. Your electrician won’t have to drive far, so there’s no need to factor in travelling costs and you can book them for emergencies and any other non-urgent jobs too. They’re also fully up to date with national regulations. It’s never been easier to find a reliable Local Hero.
