Faulty wiring can be very dangerous and each year causes:
12,500 house fires
750 accidents in the home
More than 30 deaths
If a property is more than 30 years old and still has the original wiring, it is likely to need updating to meet modern standards.
A sign a re-wire is necessary is dated rubber, fabric or lead insulated cables.
Old and faulty wiring can cause the entire electrical system to trip frequently or blow fuses and even worse can start house fires or electrical shocks.
What does a re-wire involve?
A full re-wire means all electrical cable is replaced and a new consumer unit installed. New cabling is fitted underneath the floor and buried in the walls. Access to all switches, sockets and lights are required.
Benefits of a re-wire
Re-wiring your property is not only improving the safety in your home but also an opportunity to add more switches, sockets and lights. Options include coloured socket fronts with built in USB and updating lighting for changeable LED spot lights which will save you money in electric and also add value to your home.
