The Electrical Upgrades That Can Add Value To Your Property
Although your house’s primary function is to provide shelter and security for you and your family, it makes sense where possible to implement changes that can add value to your property. The typical ideas and concepts that people focus on involve bathroom or kitchen upgrades, replacement double glazing, or possibly an extension.
The vast majority of those upgrades can involve a significant outlay and are not necessarily something within everyone’s reach, but that doesn’t mean that there are not upgrades you can undertake that will deliver benefits in addition to increasing the value of your home. Let’s take a look at some of those benefits in greater detail and hopefully give you some inspiration.
In addition to increasing the value of your property, any electrical upgrades will deliver a further range of benefits.
Cost Saving Efficiency – Technology particularly within the electrical industry has moved forward leaps and bounds over the last few years. By investing in energy-efficient lighting systems, and smart home systems, you can effectively save money year after year on the running costs of your home. The team at More Heat have installed hundreds of new lighting and smart home systems over recent years and will be more than happy to guide and assist you in the decision-making process.
Improved Safety – Another important benefit of upgrading your electrical systems is the improved safety this will provide. Electrical systems will age over time, and if not regularly checked or upgraded old wiring or faulty plug sockets have the potential to cause electrical fires or shocks. Investing in a house rewire will increase the resale value of your property, and the paperwork provided by More Heat will help you to validate to potential buyers that the work has been completed.
Modernise Your Home – The last time you had your house rewired it is highly likely that your family maybe only had one of two mobiles phones that needed to be charged overnight. Now with the plethora of mobile devices, modern plug sockets come with USB A or USB C outlets built into the plug sockets. This delivers a much more convenient and efficient experience and for the majority of families delivers excellent value for money.
Potential Electrical Upgrades You Should Consider
Converting Your Lighting To LED
A quick and easy way to save money on your electrical bill is to upgrade your lighting system to LED Lighting. LED lighting is much more energy efficient than carbon filament bulbs, it typically lasts longer and delivers a brighter and better source of illumination. This type of lighting can improve your home’s look, making it more appealing to visitors or potential buyers.
Upgrading Your Circuit Panel Breaker
In much the same way that electrical wiring can deteriorate over time, the same applies to your circuit board or panel, arguably the most important safety feature in your electrical system. By replacing your fuse board with a new modern fuse board you are likely to benefit from improved safety and additional electrical capacity. This could prove beneficial as more and more electrical appliances are used in the home.
Get A Video Doorbell Installed
Another quick and easy way to increase the value of your property is to install a video doorbell. This errs more on the side of increasing the security of your property, but also adds further benefits such as integration with other smart devices such as lights, and locks. If you are away from home and a delivery arrives, it also offers you the ease and convenience of being able to talk to the delivery driver and advise him or her where to leave your package, ensuring you get your deliveries on time and without the need for added trips to a collection point.
An Electric Vehicle Charging Port
Another way in which you can increase the buyer appeal of your property and help to future-proof it would be to invest in an electric vehicle charging port. As the demand for electric vehicles increases, and with the impending cessation of new petrol and diesel vehicles for sale, having an electric vehicle charging port installed in your property is a shrewd and relatively inexpensive option. This is another service that More Heat can provide and one that is sure to prove beneficial to anyone who currently owns an electric vehicle or intends to invest in one in the future.
Adding Outdoor Electrical Points
For anyone whose property has a garden or decking area, another electrical upgrade to their home would entail adding outdoor electrical power points. These electrical sockets are encased to ensure they are waterproof, but they offer the benefit of providing a safe and adequate power supply for items outside of the home such as lawnmowers, hot tubs, electrical barbecues, fans or heaters. Many of our customers regularly comment to us that their biggest regret about not fitting external power sockets was that they didn’t do them sooner because they have proved to be so beneficial.
If any of the above upgrades appeal to you, and you live in or around the Torquay area then the team at Moreheat would be more than happy to help you implement the process. As a family-owned and operated company, we take great pride in our work and are committed to delivering outstanding work that in turn encourages you to recommend us to your friends and family. It is this attention to detail, work ethos and exemplary customer service that we have built the company on.
