Buckhurst Hill

Buckhurst Hill is an affluent suburban town in the Epping Forest district of Essex . Positioned adjacent to the northern border of Greater London, it is a part of the Greater London Urban Area. It is to the west of Essex, roughly 10 miles (17 km) northeast of Charing Cross and close to the border with the London Borough of Redbridge. Parts of Epping Forest are in Buckhurst Hill intermingled with residential areas. The nearest areas are Chigwell, Chingford, Loughton and Woodford. As per the 2011 Census, the town features a permanent resident population of about 11,400 inhabitants. The first record of Buckhurst Hill is in 1135, when reference was made to 'La Bocherste', becoming in later years 'Bucket Hill', originally describing a hill covered with beech trees. It sat in Epping Forest and consisted of only some scattered homes along the old road from Woodford to Loughton. Before the construction of the railways, Buckhurst Hill was on the stage coach route in between London and Cambridge, Norwich, Bury St Edmunds and Dunmow. Traditionally it was a part of the parish of Chigwell; there was no road connecting the 2 communities and in order to get to church, residents had to cross the River Roding at Woodford. The establishment of Buckhurst Hill Station in 1856 led to a rapid expansion in the population of the area, with approximately six hundred new houses being built near the station by 1871. The town is also home to Buckhurst Hill Football Club and Buckhurst Hill Cricket Club. For all of your house improvement jobs, make sure that you employ vetted experts in Buckhurst Hill to ensure that you get a great quality service .

FAQs

Can you rewire a house without an electrician?

The short and simple answer to this question is, no. If you’re a seasoned DIYer then you should probably know a thing or two about electrical works around your property. However, house rewiring works should only be carried out by a qualified and registered electrician for a handful of reasons. In this FAQ, we’re going to take an in depth look at a few reasons why a house rewiring project should always be tackled by a reliable professional.

 

  • Risk. Not only do you out your own health and that of your loved ones at risk when you attempt to complete electrical rewires on your own, but you also put your property at risk. Tackling electrical works involves a great danger. These dangers can come in different forms such as electrical wires electrocution, shock as well as fire. What’s more? Items in your home also possesses higher voltages, and when it comes to electrical wiring, the higher the voltage, the more dangerous the project becomes. Another tricky task to get around is hidden junction boxes as well as connections. Since these components are out of sight, the chances of you getting shocked increases rapidly. All these risks can only be mitigated when proper procedures are followed . therefore, if you decide to do electrical work on your home, then there’s the need to obtain necessary permits for completing the work. Once completed, the work done should be inspected by a licensed electrical inspector. However, the best way to reduce the risks is by hiring the services of a licensed electrician.
  • Safety. Electricians are trained to perfect their craft and comply with safety protocols. They’re also required to pass a licensing test so as to work as an electrician. The safety of your property and loved ones when it comes to your home’s electrical works can only be guaranteed when done by a qualified and registered electrician.
how much to rewire a 3 bed house?

If you’re thinking about rewiring your three bedroom house, one of the first few things you’d have to put into consideration is the cost of completing the project in order to help you set a budget and start to plan. In this post, we seek to provide you with the most accurate cost possible for your project to help you get started as soon as possible.

 

In truth, there’s no simple and short answer to this question as the average cost to rewire a house is based on a wide range of factors. For older properties, you may need completely rewire the property in order to enhance the energy efficiency. However, this may not be required the your home was just recently built. Firstly, it should be stated that there are numerous factors that affects the price of a rendering a house which includes the size of the house and its condition, the ease of access, the prep work required, as well as your location and the quality of the contractor your hire. Out of all these factors, the most significant variables are probably the type of rewiring task you go for (whether for the whole house or some specific parts ) as well as the size of the house.

 

House rewiring is usually a messy and disruptive task which can also be very dangerous especially when handled by a inexperienced individual. As a result, we’d strongly recommend that this task is carried out by a qualified and registered electrician who is well trained to perform this task to perfection. The average cost for electrical rewiring for a three bedroom semi detached house should be within the range of £3000 to £4500, although there may be some extra house rewiring cost that may also arise in the process.

does my house need rewiring?

When it comes to electrical works, safety is always paramount. Although a complete house rewiring service may seem quite expensive, when compared to the safety it provides, you’d realize it’s well worth it. We know all too well that human nature tends to prevail to overlook small electrical issues until it’s too late or probably gets out of hands. When this happens, not only will you have to spend more to get the issue resolved, but it may also lead to some damages to your property. Hence, the need to identify and resolve electrical deficiencies as soon as possible. In this post, we’ve compiled a shortlist of some of the top signs that your house needs rewiring. Let’s take a look!

  • Dimming or flickering lights. This is one of the most common signs that your house needs to be rewired. When a light brightens, it means there’s too much voltage and when it dims, it implies it’s receiving too little voltage. You may be tempted to think this is a lighbulb issue, but this type of decline in power is usually as a result of a loose wiring or faulty circuits which should not be ignored.
  • Regularly blown fuses. With the steady development in technology as well as electrical appliances within our houses, older style fuses that are not designed to contain this amount of electricity will end up blowing. If your fuse blows on a more regular basis, then there may be a need to upgrade them to more modern circuit breakers.
  • Lightbulbs burning out in their sockets. This is usually a sign of bigger issues in your wiring which is often caused by fluctuations in voltage.
  • Sparking outlets. These can be perfectly normal, but at times they can also be a clear signal of a potentially dangerous problem which should not be ignored.
does a 1970s house need rewiring?

Unlike in houses constructed in the 1960s, where you’d probably need to rewire the entire house unless the wiring is the modern PVCu coated type, majority of houses built in the 1970s would not need to be rewired. Most often than not, what they’ll need is just a consumer unit as well as an earthing upgrade. If you happen to have a consumer unit change, the electrical professional you hire would have to inspect the most parts of the property regardless. With that answered, you may also wish to know just how often a house would need to be rewired.

 

First and foremost, in order to make sure that your wiring is safe there’s a need to ensure that a periodic inspection is carried out by a fully licensed and qualified electrician every 10 years. Meanwhile for rental properties with tenants, the landlord is required to carry out a periodic inspection at least every 5 years. This will make sure that the electrical works in the property are safe, up to date and suitable for continued usage.

 

In order to determine whether your house needs to be rewired, there are some signs or indicators you’d have to watch out for. If you notice one or even a combination of the following , then you should get in touch with a registered electrician:

  • Discoloured outlets and switches
  • Persistent burning smell
  • Outlets problems
  • Flickering lights
  • Tripping circuit breaker or blown fuses
  • If you happen to possess aluminium wiring
  • If you have continually experienced electrical shocks

 

It must, however, be said that rewiring a house is a messy and quite disruptive work. It’s also considered to be quite dangerous and recommended to be carried out only by a professional is well trained and experienced when it comes to tackling electrical works.
