Electrical Rewiring services
Properties which have not been rewired in the last 25-30 years are likely to need upgrading to bring them up to modern standards.
When planning major remodelling work that constitutes a material alteration as defined by the Building Regulations, you will need to rewire part, if not all, of the property including upgrading the consumer unit or fuse box.
When extending your home or converting part of it will constitute new work and therefore all of the new wiring will have to conform to Part P: Electrical Safety, and all existing wiring will have to be improved to ensure that it is able to carry the additional loads safely, it is earthed to current requirements and that cross bonding is satisfactory. The rest of the existing wiring would not have to be upgraded.
Some signs that you may need to rewire your home:
- Circuit breakers that trip regularly
- Fuses repeatedly blowing
- Slight shocks from switches and outlets
- Frequently flickering or dimming lights
- Wiring or switches and sockets in poor condition or damaged
- Persistent unidentified burning smell
