Even if you’re not sure you want it, it’s always best to wire the internal container now rather than later. On most of our projects we run the cables in conduit hidden in the walls, this gives a better finish later on.
All our Cabling is done to international standards and run in wall cavities and plastic trunking. Socket outlets and switches are the same as found in most households and have 3 pins for Live Neutral and Earth. In Thailand the electrical systems are not the greatest however it is always best to wire with an Earth system and add an earth rod into the ground if needed.
All cabling should be done in the right size cables and circuits. For example 2.5mm cable for socket ring mains, 1.5mm cable for lighting radial circuits, 4mm for larger appliances such as ovens and AC. If you are unsure you should contact us or a local electrician for advice to ensure the cabling can handle the loads required.
The main decision is to choose the style and material of the outlets. Whether you go for plastic, stainless or other will affect the price.
Lighting systems are usually LED which ensure low power consumption.
Solar Power is also an option however a fairly large solar system will be needed if you plan to run normal household appliances. In Thailand the payback is around 7 years for Solar and therefore it is best to actually feed and electric back to the meter to reduce the energy used rather than try to power appliances.
We follow the IEE regulations for our wiring (BS7671) which would pass most inspections for Wester countries. More details of the actual regulations can be found here. Institute Of Engineering And Technology
