FAQs

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 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.

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 is a new fuse board?

Also commonly referred to as a consumer unit in recent times, a fuse box is responsible for controlling and allocating of the electricity in your home. They hold the power any time there’s an overload in one of the circuits which in turn, prevents fire as well as electrical damage. Fuse boxes are often incorporated in homes but consumer units are very rapidly replacing them. Therefore, when your fuse box breaks down, it’s always a smart decision to replace them with consumer units due to the fact that they’re safer and also comply with building regulations while also being a lot easier to use. If you’re extending your home, upgrading to a larger capacity model enables you to make use of more power with the power overloading. In this post, we’re going to cover the amount you’re expected to pay to replace or install a new fuse box or consumer unit as well as the factors that may affect the cost.

 

For a 10 way dual RCD consumer unit, the typical cost range will be between £250 to £600, meanwhile 15 way dual RCD consumer unit should cost within the range of £300 to £700. Overall, the smaller the house, the fewer the circuits that’ll be needed, hence the difference in the aforementioned prices.

 

There a number of factors that can affect the cost of replacing a fuse box. These factors includes the the size of the house in question ( the bigger the house , the more the circuits there are and the bigger the fuse box needed), the location ( for instance, places like London where there are higher demands are likely to be more expensive than other regions ).
