Electrical re-wiring

Electric rewiring

Your home may need to be rewired if its electrical installation is over 25 years old, as insulation can wear out over time along with other problems which can make it unsafe.

An electrician may replace some or all of the electrical wiring in your property, and they can add or replace other items like sockets and switches at the same time.

Reasons you would need your home rewiring

From time to time, an inspection will reveal that the wiring in your home or rented property has deteriorated to such an extent that a full rewire is required. Having this work done will ensure the safety of you and your family.

Reasons a rewiring may need to take place include:

  • The installation comprises of old rubber or PVC cables that have deteriorated to such an extent that they can no longer safely carry the electrical loads imposed on them.

  • The protective devices are failing to function correctly and need replacing but the consumer unit is not capable of accommodating modern devices.

  • A significant number of serious faults have been identified on the EICR following a periodic Inspection.

  • Building works such as extensions will result in increased loading on the existing electrical installation which it is not capable of handling.

Having your home tested and rewired is a sure-fire way to reduce the chances of a fault and keep you and your family safe.

Energy Performance of Houses

The below data demonstrates the energy performance of properties in Uk. Energy ratings range from A to G, with A being the most energy-efficient and G being the least efficient. The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating comes into play heavily when you want to sell your property, as prospective buyers will see how much they're probably going to be paying for their home heating expenses. Home upgrades such as insulation help you to significantly boost a home's EPC rating.
