Rewiring For Older Properties
Older properties may have an older style of wiring. In the modern age in which the average home contains an array of appliances, this can be dangerous and may pose a fire risk.
Old and faulty wiring can cause your electrics to trip frequently or blow fuses. You may also be at risk to receiving electric shocks from older wiring.
If you do have concerns about the quality of wiring in your property or if you suspect that some wiring work has been completed that is not up to standard then you could be in serious risk of a fire or other issues occurring.
If you are considering purchasing an older property, a great rule of thumb is to check the wiring before purchase. Our team of expert electricians are able to have a look at the wiring and make recommendations on if a rewiring needs to be carried out and what work will be required to restore the property to modern standards.
Modern rewiring usually includes replacing the fuse box with a more modern unit as well as changing the rewiring to modern variants (such as UPVC wiring)
Do I Need Rewiring?
It’s sometimes not as simple as your wiring being old in which you may be at risk. Older wiring may not necessarily be unsafe but there’s a higher risk of wear and tear compared to newer wiring. Wear and tear also depends on a number of factors such as which material the wiring is made out of and how it’s been used in the past.
Rewiring is not solely used for bringing your wiring to current standards and improving safety, you can also add additional outlets such as more plugs for your appliances as well as more switches. With the shoe on the other foot, you can even carry out a modern rewiring in an older property that you are looking to sell to increase the appeal to buyers.
What are the Signs You Need a Rewiring
As discussed, you may need to carry out an electrical rewiring for your property if circuit breakers are tripping regular and you are getting electrical shocks from cables and outlets. Other telltale signs include lights that dim and flicker frequently or you can see exposed and damaged wires or cabling.
If you also suspect that DIY work has been going on then you should also consider a rewiring of your home. This can also affect modern wiring as DIY work is dangerous and can pose the same risks that are posed by wires that have suffered wear and tear.
If you do suspect that there has been work that is unsafe carried out on your wiring then you should contact our electricians. We can advise you on the work that has been carried out and can offer solutions to resolve these issues as well as a quotation.
Rewiring For Extensions
Extension work may require rewiring to cater for the new extension or wiring to be installed. Our fully qualified team of technicians can work with you during an extension.
