Domestic Rewire FAQs
What Is a rewire?
A rewire replaces some or all of the electrical wiring in a house.
A ‘rewire’ is rarely just a rewire; householders often replace, or add, electrical items, for instance sockets, light switches and fuse boards.
How often should your home be rewired?
You might want to consider having your home rewired in one of the following circumstances:
- After a specific time period, usually about 25 years.
- When you have outdated wiring, for instance the rubber insulated kind that has not been used in the UK since the early 1960s.
- When a series of problems suggest the need for a rewire, for instance constantly tripping RCD’s or repeatedly blowing fuses.
- When the wiring in your home fails an inspection by a qualified electrician.
Why should I rewire my home?
Faulty electrical wiring can damage electrical appliances and cause fires.
How much does a rewire cost?
Rewires can differ greatly in cost as there are a number of factors to take into consideration, for example the age and size of the building or the quality and nature of the fittings you opt for – do you want white plastic sockets or more expensive metal sockets, a simple lighting arrangement or something more complicated and state of the art?
