Does your property need a rewire?
There a few reasons why your property might need a partial or full rewire. These include wiring that is of a certain age. Here, rewiring can ensure the safety of your home’s electrics.
Rewiring can be a costly process, but there are many occasions when it is essential to keep you and your family safe.
It’s common to carry out wiring inspections on a property once every 10 years, or whenever a tenancy expires if the property is being let.
Choosing whether rewiring is necessary, however, is not a black-and-white issue. Just because wiring is old, it doesn’t automatically need to be replaced. Whether a property needs rewiring depends on the materials used, what condition they are in, and the previous electrical use in the property.
When rewiring is necessary
If your wiring is more than 30 years old, it is more likely to need rewiring so that it can be modernised to meet safety and usage standards. Wiring designed 30 years ago was not built with today’s levels of use in mind.
Other signs you may need a rewire
There are many signs easily discernible from the performance of your electrics that indicate you need a home rewire.
- Circuit breakers trip regularly
- Outlets and switches give electric shocks
- Flickering lights
- Exposed or damaged wires
