Initiative ELEKTRO+

Communication

The demands on communications systems in residential buildings have changed dramatically over the last few years. Developments in internal house communication and telecommunication (telephone connection) have probably had the strongest influence on technical building infrastructure.

In order for TV, radio, internet, fax and telephone to function successfully the ELEKTRO+ Initiative recommends using separate electrical installation conduits for the following areas:

  • living room,
  • dining room,
  • bedroom,
  • playroom or child’s bedroom,
  • guest bedroom,
  • hall,
  • kitchen,
  • home office,
  • study,
  • hobby room
  • utility room,
  • covered terrace.


In each room a conduit for internet, fax and telephone and a second conduit for TV and radio should be installed. The communications connections in each room may vary according to your chosen HEA Electrical Installation Value. The provision of installation conduits enables the simple retrofitting of your electrical system to accomodate future multimedia requirements.
