Rewiring, and Wiring Installation and Repairs
Rewiring your home can seem like a major job that will cause inconvenience and mess, and lots of people may decide it’s “not worth it” because they think their electrical wiring, although older, is fine because they’ve not encountered any problems.
Does my house need rewiring?
If in doubt, call us now on 0422 877 257 to book a safety check. If your house wiring is over 30 years old, if you’ve been having circuit breakers and safety switches trip or blown fuses, or your appliances or lights have been having problems these are all signs of potential wiring faults that may need attention.
The problem with most home electrical wiring is that the cabling is hidden from view, making it difficult to asses the age and quality of the wiring by looking at the switches or power points alone. If you do find black electrical wires this is an urgent sign that you need a checking. Modern electrical wiring is either grey or white and uses PVC insulation. Older black cables use a rubber insulation which can perish with age and could pose a real danger. If you’re in any doubt, or you’ve ever noticed a scorched or burning smell, seen scorching on power points or noticed plugs or power points feeling hot to the touch in use then you should book a safety check immediately.
