Have you ever wondered how old the wiring in your home actually is? It may easily be over 10 years old; in which case, you should have it professionally inspected and tested and be prepared to consider rewiring. Electrical rewires are one of our specialities here at KDE. Our team of highly trained electrical engineers are experts at rewiring houses and all types of commercial properties.
A rewire can typically be either a partial or total replacement of all the electrical wires in a property. Any wiring installation that is 20 years old or more will probably need rewiring immediately as the insulation will most likely be starting to disintegrate, which can be a serious fire and electric shock hazard for anyone in the building. You may have problems with fuses constantly blowing, or your bulbs never seem to last very long; these are tell- tale signs that your property’s electrical wiring needs testing and possibly a total rewire.
If the wiring in your home is not so old and you are simply adding an extension or maybe you are remodelling your kitchen, then electrical rewires are still needed, just not for the whole property. The first step is to get the whole system inspected and tested by a qualified electrical engineer who will be able to advise you what needs to be carried out in the way of replacement wiring in order to make the electrical installation as safe as possible for you and your family.
Always make sure that all testing and installation is carried out by a qualified and experienced professional, never do it yourself or allow an inexperienced or unqualified person to even touch the wiring in your house; it is simply unwise and dangerous to all concerned. You should always expect that the electrician who undertakes any testing or electrical rewires is a member of a professional trade organisation (NICEIC) and that they can give you a quotation for all the work and fittings, such as light fittings, sockets etc. in writing, along with a proposed start and end date for the job.
