I would like to put electric heating into my existing double garage.. I have basic electric supply out there but need to upgrade in order to run the 6kw heater which will heat the radiators.
I am told that I will need armoured cable capable of taking at least 24 amp.. but who do you wire the cable up . I assume you would need a comsumer unit. Can anyone recommend which type ..
1)Basic electrical supply? what is it?
2)Is the garage part of the house or detached?
3)What is your basic supply, suppling?
4)and has this supply got a garage CU or connected straight to CU in house?
5) are you aware of part p requirements?
