As a rule, the standard number of sockets, which was originally installed in Soviet-style apartments, does not meet the needs of modern people. Today, a three-person family needs many times more outlets than a few decades ago. For example, you need to charge smartphones, tablets. In the summer, one outlet may be occupied with mosquito repellent. To this also need to add household appliances. Therefore, it may be necessary to increase the number of outlets. This work can be done independently. However, if you do not have any skills in electrical engineering, then you should trust experts to take the cable from the junction box, or from the electrical panel to the place where you plan to place the sockets. The rest of the work can be done independently, as there is nothing difficult about it. In addition, you can save a lot.If the wall is brick or concrete, it is better to use a puncher. Also you will need a crown for the holes of the podzroetnikov. They also vary, depending on which wall to drill the hole (plasterboard, brick, concrete). Next, disconnect the power supply in the meter, or the shield. Once again, make sure that there is no power, using the indicator. Now you can confidently take the cable in hand.Clean all conductors from insulation by about 10 mm at the edges. The next step is the installation of plug-ins. They also need to be set by level. It can be fixed with a putty or twisting the screw into the center of the underlay. The second option is more reliable, as with time the putty can crumble, and if you screw the screw or fast installation, then even after a time the podzroetnik will not jump out. Even if you sharply remove the plug from the outlet, do not hold it.On the sides and on top of the podrozetnikov there are holes that can be released by cutting them with a knife. This is necessary in order to lead the main cable to one of the receptacles, and then to connect the rest of the adjacent subsectors with a wire. From each podozetnika should go on two cables of different colors. If you plan to do further repairs in this room, then you need to insulate the wire, and put the plugs in order not to damage it during the work. Some install sockets after wall finishing.
Do-it-yourself installation of the outletTo begin with, measure the height where the outlet will be located.Immediately plan how the furniture will stand, so it's convenient to approach the sockets, and also it is convenient to connect to them. Draw a pencil in the level of the line on which you will drill the holes for the junks. If you plan to install several outlets in a row, then all holes must be drilled horizontally to each other. To drill holes, you will need a drill or punch.
