In our rapid service work, we often meet new customers in condominiums. Failure of overloaded systems. In some cases, only cables from the apartment to the backbone network need to be replaced, other times the entire network needs to be replaced.
The replacement or renewal of the entire mains system shall be subject to an electrical plan, the existence of which is required. This plan is prepared by an electrical engineer. In addition to existing consumption, the increase in future consumption should be taken into account in the planning. This avoids multiple renovations and the expansion of the under undeveloped system.
An entirely new design means more work, while a new line can be built into the existing system when an old system is renovated.
Electrical installation work in residential areas: renovation of the electrical network
When building a new system and renovating an old system, it is important to comply with today's regulations. The professionals employed must have the appropriate authorisation. So be sure to entrust this work to professionals, leave it to us!
The complete lack of contact protection, textile insulated wires, hopelessly oxidized, charred connections characterizes the electrical grid of these former civic houses. In the manufacture of these electrical equipment, electrical wiring only had to operate a few electrical devices.
In addition to the lighting of the premises, there was virtually no consumer and the maximum power of one consumer was between two and a few hundred watts. Of course, the circuits are designed to meet the requirements of the age. In addition, in the case of circuits, even the multiple number can not be used very often, the correct term is more like "circuit", since only one circuit was built.
- Distribution of UTP and coaxial cables per room and room from a specific central location.
- Work on meters: expansion of connection capacity, standardisation under the leadership of ELMŰ-ÉMÁSZ.
The problem was mainly due to the fact that over the decades assets have proliferated and living standards have increased, and not only the number of assets, but also their performance has gradually increased. In proportion to this, the demand for more connectors and the continuous expansion of the electrical grid has increased. This has almost always meant connecting to the original, untouched cable network, which, of course, places an increasing burden on existing circuits.
In many cases, even the average residential property in Budapest has better technical parameters for the electrical grid than an old brick city apartment.
Electrical grid for condominiums
The electrical grids of most condominiums do not meet modern requirements in terms of circuits, load capacity or safety.
Even when renovating the apartments of former city dwellers and owner-occupied dwellings, electrical fittings should not be left untouched.
Ensuring effective protection against accidental contact has become a growing problem as the number of devices increases, and continues to do so today. It is safe to say that there is no realistic way to improve the existing electrical installation of these old residential property. For the most part, only a complete renovation can be the solution.
Condominium electrical grid pre-order
The following rules apply to condominiums:
- Touch protection review, measurement /ÉVF
The Protocol is based on MSZ Standard 60364 and Regulation No 40/2017 (XII. 4) according to NGM regulation.
- Review of high-current equipment /EBF
Protocol No 54/2014 (XII) BM regulation.
- Lightning protection measurement and review /VVF
Protocol No 54/2014 (XII) BM regulation. New: 54/2014 (XII.) Bm
Required frequency of the above-mentioned tests: mandatory every 6 years!
Condominium performance expansion
Durable, reliable electrical installation is an essential part of an efficient, modern and comfortable home. The new power grid expansion in a condominium will be built in the spirit of the present day, in all respects according to the needs and expectations of the customer. The reasonable design of the right number of sockets and lamps, as well as alternative and cross-links, contributes significantly to everyday use.
In many cases, it is also necessary to increase the rated connection performance. In these cases , the measuring point shall also be standardised. In this case, the utility meter located in the apartment is placed outside the hallway in the manner specified by the regulations.
It is also important to mention the prestigious ceilings of the old condominium apartments in the city centre. This is an excellent opportunity to create a gallery with which many owners live. This is also important from an electrical point of view. After all, the segregated space cannot be left without sockets and lighting, and it is important to establish connections to the gallery.
The patina downtown condominiums offer a great opportunity to run all kinds of businesses. We have already set up an electrical network in an old town condominium for private doctors and dentists, dental workshops, law firms and travel agencies, as well as software development companies.
Renovation of low voltage systems
Coaxial, UTP and telephone cables through doors, windows and walls in old downtown buildings are widely used in condominiums. It is often possible to follow the full development of telecommunications in Budapest from the beginning to the present day. Of course, this can not happen during the renovation. In parallel with the high-voltage network, a deep protective network is being built, with a separate protective tube. Today, TV and Internet connection are essential per room.
To sum up, these apartments in old and old condominiums have a lot of potential for electrical installation. Virtually all the client's ideas are feasible.
Replacement of an unsized mains line in a condominium
It is common for the oversized mains of former houses to meet today's increased electricity needs. A few decades ago, everyone had 2 60W lights in their apartment and we had almost no other electrical equipment. Unrealized networks made of aluminium or copper are extremely stressed by electric stoves, washing machines, microwaves, air conditioning systems and boilers. You need to change the outsized network.
Create a new measuring site
Old meters can be as old as 50 years old. There are few things that are so old in our apartment, and we don't get mad if they don't work exactly the way we want them to. Our measuring point must also be renewed. The cross-section of material and wires in the wall for a long time did not meet expectations. We'll help you with the renovation.

- Full administration
ELMÜ registered electrician
The utility company only accepts the work and stamp of an ELMÜ electrician. The measuring point is essential for installation and network replacement. We're going to take every task off your shoulders, and all administrations are our job.
Renovation of common areas and cellar electricity network
The common areas of condominiums are used by many people. Push buttons and switches are much heavier than in our home. The lamps are outdated and in many cases accident-prone, as they do not have a hood and can only hang on the ceiling on their own wire. There was usually no maintenance in the basement for years. The room is often wet, so the wiring there has been out of service for a long time and does not meet the touch protection standard. We can't wait for a power outage or a personal injury accident with the renovation.
Detect power theft
Only the energy needed to operate the house can be measured with the meter of the municipality. Many people do not think so and associate themselves with the community meter, at the expense of others and the condominium. Detection is not easy, but it can be solved.
Electrical installation of new-build condominiums
There's a lot of work to be done in installing electricity in a new condominium. We see the quantity and complexity of tasks after assessing needs.
Without the need for completeness, the following often arise in connection with the electrical installation of condominiums and apartment complexes.
Yard, outdoor lighting for house
It must be designed according to the actual needs of the inhabitants. Save energy and money by transforming and replacing a light source such as a compact fluorescent lamp, halogen or LED lamp. Outdoor lighting should be intelligently switched on so as not to be distracted by unnecessarily illuminated lamps.
Stairway lighting modernization, wiring
There are condominiums that do not take advantage of the technical possibilities, even the stairwells float in full light during the day. With motion and presence sensors, dusk switches, time relays and LED lighting, you can remove unnecessary waste and save money on something else.
