Hi, I'm going to have my house rewired by a qualified/registered electrician but just wanted to double-check some things for my own peace of mind.
I'd like to have electric underfloor heating in my main bathroom and en-suite shower room. The electrician has told me that it is safe to have the thermostatic control and fused switch spur for the underfloor heating situated in the bathroom itself. Moreover, he says that the fused spur switch for my manrose extractor fan can be housed in the bathroom too!
I've always thought that apart from a pull cord for the ceiling light and shaver socket, all other electrical light switches and fused spurs in the bathroom were a definite 'No' and had to be located outside the room.
However, the electrician says that regulations have changed and you can now have controls/switches/spurs in the room - providing they are at least 60cm away from a shower cubicle/basin and further away from a bath.
Is this correct?
Thanks in advance for any advise offered.
