Epping is a market town and civil parish in the Epping Forest district of the County of Essex, England. It is located roughly 3 miles (5 kilometres) northeast of Loughton, 5 miles (8 km) south of Harlow and 11 miles (18 kilometres) northwest of Brentwood. The town encompasses a total area of 2.98 square miles. In accordance with the 2011 Census, Epping has a permanent population of 11461, which has increased marginally from the 11047 residents recorded in the 2001 Census. Most of the population reside in the built-up area found on and around the High Street (B1393) and Station Road. Even though it is the terminus for London Underground's Central Line, the town is characterised by some aspects of rurality, being encompassed by Epping Forest and working farmland. Epping is the home of a number of older structures, a number of which are Grade I and II listed structures. The town also holds on to its weekly market. Dating back to 1253, the market happens every Monday and continues to bring in a high variety of shoppers from neighboring regions. Despite the simple fact that the popular Epping Butter, which was in high demand over the course of the 18th and 19th centuries, is no longer made, the well-known Epping sausages continue to be made by Church's Butchers who have been trading on the exact same site ever since 1888. Epping is the home of Hallows End Haunt, an annual Halloween Home Haunt set up by a local family to offer members of the neighborhood with a safe area to trick or treat.

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 often should a house be rewired?

There is no set guidelines for rewiring your property however if your house is more than 20-30 years of ages it would certainly constantly be best to get an EICR accomplished to determine the problem of the electrical installation. If you are most likely to be accomplishing a great deal of repair works such as a brand-new kitchen/bathroom/extension this might additionally be a good time to have your house rewired as every little thing might then be done simultaneously

 

Modern wires is PVC covered, PVC shielded and copper is made use of for the conductors. It lasts for years. At once in the 1940s and 1950s cables were made using rubber as well as this wires was known to be harmful. Rubber protected as well as sheathed cable came to be dry and also weak, especially if it obtained very warm under hefty use, and also the threat was the dry as well as breakable rubber made use of to break away from the conductors leaving revealed live wire. This caused fires and also fatal shocks if touched. Modern PVC electrical wiring does not struggle with destruction this way so the requirement to rewire is somewhat lowered.

how much to rewire a house?

When the wiring on your property becomes dated, dangerous or non functional, then rewiring of your house becomes a necessity. If you’re thinking about rewiring your 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 general, the average cost to rewire a house can vary from £2000 to about £10,000, which includes the prices for both material and labour. Factors that can have a great influence on the final price includes the type of your property, the quality of the existing wiring as well as the complexity of the installation needed. The most important determinants 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. The qualification of the electrician hired and the labour costs will also influence the final budget required to a great extent. Overall, the average cost of rewiring a house stands at £4000 and it will usually take up to 7 days for a complete rewire to be done. 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.

 

Being a messy and disruptive task which can also be very dangerous especially when handled by a inexperienced individual, we’d strongly recommend that house rewiring is carried out by a qualified and registered electrician who is well trained to perform this task to perfection.

does a 1960 house need rewiring?

Unlike in houses built in the 1970s where a good majority of the houses will not need to be rewired, for houses built in the 1960s you’d probably need to rewire the entire house unless the wiring is the modern PVCu coated type. Generally, the homes built especially in the 1960s and 1970s brought about enormous changes. This is because over the years our way of living began to change and as a result, our need for electricity became even greater. In response to this, the electrical systems we incorporate needed to change in order to match the new set standards.

 

In the 1960s, the amperage normally used was increased to 100, which enables home and property owners to power their dishwasher, microwave as well as refrigerator all on one circuit. However, while this may be a remarkable improvement for our grand parents, this is just enough to cater for our modern day appliances. In recent times, new homes are constructed using a wide range of dedicated circuits due to the fact that each of our appliances makes use of much more electricity to function. Consequently because the 100 amp panels of the 1960s possessed restricted space for breakers, home and property owners who still had the units in their homes will inevitably require a sub panel or a new panel entirely - meaning a total rewiring of their property.

 

Furthermore in the 1960s, builders turned to aluminium from the previously used copper as it was a great conductor and also happens to be relatively cheap. However, after a couple of years a host of electrical fires cropped up in houses that are wired using aluminium. It was later discovered that when the switch to aluminium was made, the light switches or receptacles which were originally made for the previously used copper was overlooked. It was learned that there’s a corrosive chemical reaction that arises as a result of the two dissimilar metals when connected. Hence, the more reason why aluminium wired houses in the 1960s needs to be rewired.
