When Should I get My House Rewired?
Electrical experts recommend that houses should receive a full rewire every 25 to 30 years to ensure the electrical safety is ensured throughout the house or property. We also fully recommend that you should get your house rewired before starting any other major decoration work such as wallpapering, painting or plastering. The work could commence simultaneously with any plumbing work that needs to be undertaken on your property. We recommend these steps due the fact that electrical cables cannot be mounted above board. As a result, we would need to lift the property’s floorboards up and lay cable throughout where appropriate.
How Would I Know if My House Has Been Rewired?
There are several ways of finding out when your property last received a rewiring. Checking your fuse box (also known as a consumer unit) for this information would be the first port of call. If this doesn’t provide any details as to when the last rewiring was completed, you may be able to source some exposed cabling nearby which may give an indication. If the consumer unit (fuse box) contains old styled parts or looks similar to the image below, then there is a strong possibility that your property needs a full rewire with a new consumer unit.
To deliver the best possible service to our customers, we also offer a service specifically dedicated to surveying a property for rewiring purposes. This type of service is aimed for people that are unsure whether they need an electrical rewiring solution but would like to receive honest advice on what the next steps to take. Rest assured that our electricians will only provide feedback on genuine advice that they feel meets your very best interests and providing you with the most cost-effective solution possible.
