When should you consider rewiring your property?

 

There are various situations in which your facility may require rewiring. Numerous older properties in the UK have not undergone any electrical work for 25 years or more. This is frequently due to the hassle of rewiring, which causes homeowners to postpone it until the house is sold. If you observe specific signs, such as an old fuse box instead of a contemporary consumer unit, strange noises or frequent power outages, plug sockets linked to skirting boards and more, you should consider rewiring. If you are acquiring a house where rewiring is advised, this information should be included in your building survey. Rewiring should be a priority in such circumstances as it poses potential hazards such as the risk of fire or electrocution. Another case is  If you’re already planning renovations, now is the time for electrical system upgrades. Our specialists will work with you to effortlessly integrate these changes into your home’s restoration plan.

Before proceeding with any rewiring project, our qualified electricians will conduct a thorough property evaluation. We know that not every problem necessitates a complete rewiring. There have been cases where a single burned fuse caused a power outage, and electrical testing saves homeowners from unnecessary rewiring. We believe in being exact and cost-effective in making electrical safety inspections. It is essential to ensure the safety and operation of your electrical system since this directly affects the safety of your building and its residents.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is electrical rewiring?

An electrical rewiring includes replacing all of the existing wiring, sockets, switches, and other electrical components with new ones. During a rewiring, electricians remove any damaged or unsafe wires and replace them with new ones. Switches and plugs have also been updated to meet safety requirements.

When does a building need to be rewired?

A building’s electrical system should get a refresh roughly every 25 years, or when it becomes obsolete, ineffective, or dangerous. If you’re living in an old building and you start seeing lights flickering, fuses blowing or old-school outlets and switches, it’s a clear sign – it’s time to get rewiring.

If you’re living in an old building and you start seeing lights flickering, fuses blowing or old-school outlets and switches, it’s a clear sign – it’s time to get rewiring. A building that is owned must be inspected every 10 years, while a rental property should be inspected every five years or during a tenancy change. A qualified electrician must inspect your electrical needs and give recommendations. 

Can I upgrade my electrical system during the rewiring process?

Certainly! The process of rewiring is a proper time to integrate innovative solutions like IoT sensors, Building Management Systems (BMS), and energy-saving devices. By employing these technologies, we enhance the intelligence and efficiency of your residence. 

Is it illegal to sell a house that needs rewiring?

It is not necessary to rewire your house in order to sell it. However, the buyer may request an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). Since 2013, UK property sellers must submit detailed information about the property they are selling using a TA6 form. This contains information about the electrical wiring. It should be updated and fulfil specific requirements. So it is recommended to conduct a routine inspection with the assistance of a certified electrician for any irregularities.

Is it worth rewiring an old house?

Yes, it’s worth rewiring an old house. When you do this, you should think about including current technology such as IoT sensors, BMS, and energy-saving technologies. This makes your property smarter, more efficient, and environmentally friendly.

How does commercial industrial wiring differ from residential wiring?

Commercial and residential wiring differ in several ways. The material utilised is one significant distinction. To protect people from electric shocks, cables in homes are typically encased in PVC plastic sheaths. Wiring is more exposed in commercial settings, although it is contained in tubes for safety. To satisfy heavy needs, commercial buildings often employ a three-phase system, whereas residential buildings normally use a single-phase system. Because residential structures utilise less electricity, they only have one pair of lines. Commercial wiring requires specific nylon coatings to resist heat and prevent corrosion since it runs at higher volts.

Do you have to redecorate after rewiring?

Rewiring involves putting cables under the building’s materials, usually out of view. These cable channels or wall chases, as they’re called, will need to be covered up afterwards.  Most homeowners will likely need to do some redecorating after a rewiring project.  As part of our facility management service, we provide redecoration services. So we not only take care of your electrical demands, but we also make certain that your house appears prestigious once the work is over.

How long does a rewiring project usually take?

Although we work efficiently, the duration of a rewiring project will depend on the size of your property and the specific needs you have.
