Recently had a local company come and give me a quotation to lay a new drive and fit a garage door.
So far, the drive is progressing well and looks very professional. With this in mind I asked him to recommend an electrician to carry out the following:
2 outside lights operated by switch.
3 double sockets (for freezer, lawn mover and the odd power tool).
3 internal fluorescent lights.
The builder has come back to me and said he can do this:
10m run PVC twin & earth from FCU in kitchen to garage consumer unit (40A/30mA RCD) â€“ cable protected by PVC conduit, buried in ground.
3 x 13amp 2 gang switched socket connected to 16A MCB.
2 x outdoor lanterns connected to 6A MCB and switched (10A, 1 way, 1 gang).
3 x fluorescent batten fitting (58W) connected to 6A MCB and switched (10A, 1 way, 1 gang)
I do know that my kitchen circuit, where the FCU is located, is on a ring and this connects directly with my consumer unit (I canâ€™t remember what amp the MCB is without looking).
Iâ€™m not entirely comfortable about letting the builder go ahead with this and would be grateful of your opinion. Is there anything I should be looking out for if I decide to have another estimate?
