2 gang switch - lighting query


Postby markymark31 » Wed Aug 22, 2007 4:02 pm

I am looking to connect a Lighted Mirror in my bathroom to be controlled by a two gang single dimmer switch. The Bathroom lighting is connected via a loop in system. What would be the best way of connecting this together? I was hoping to connect the mirror into the loop rather that run it straight into the CCU but the ceiling rose has no spare terminal blocks. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

To Markymark31.

Please re-check with the building control department of your local council. The Part P regulations simply state that alterations to an existing circuit or addition of a new circuit in a bathroom, unless it is on a like for like basis require the work to be certified. The bathroom is treated as a special zone to make it safe and if your home insurance could easily be nullified by unqualified or certificated work in a bathroom.

i am an electrician and have been practicing for a four years. I would be carrying out the work through my company which is NICEIC registered. I always like to check with other electricians on how a job might be done beforehand. Just bouncing ideas really.
