Hiring a tradesman for a USB wall outlet installation
USB wall outlets are becoming a more common feature in modern homes. Unlike standard plug outlets, they include a number of charging ports for USB cables, allowing you to charge your smart device without having to find a computer or plug adapter.
Whenever you are dealing with electrical home improvements, your best option will be to hire a qualified electrician. Even ‘simple’ electrical DIY jobs can be dangerous for someone who does not know the proper guidelines to follow. Additionally, all electrical installations must comply with Building Regulations, which a high quality professional will already be fluent with.

What do you need to know about USB wall outlet installation?
The first thing you will need to think about if you are planning to have a USB wall outlet installed is where exactly you are going to put it. Although they are very useful, it is unlikely that you will need to switch every single one of your plugs over to a USB model. Focus on the rooms where you usually need an outlet for your smart device, such as your bedroom, living room or kitchen.
Although USB wall outlets are an innovative idea, they are essentially the same as normal outlets, and so the cost of having one installed should not be too high. On average, you could expect to pay between £40 and £100 to install a single USB wall outlet, and between £60 and £100 for a double. Be sure to collect several quotes to compare in order to make sure that you get a competitive price.
When you are installing a new outlet, the wires all have to go somewhere! You can choose to hide your wires with a plastic conduit stuck to your wall, which is a cheap solution but will also leave you with a bulky eyesore. An alternative is having your electrician fish the wires through your wall. This will keep them nice and hidden, although you will need to re-plaster and redecorate the wall afterwards in order to create a seamless look.
