Upgrade old wiring
Generally, wiring in homes is designed to last about 35 years. One indication of older wiring is the presence of fuses in the switchboard – instead of circuit breakers.
Home electrical wiring not designed for today’s appliances end up over-loaded and potentially dangerous.
We can also replace fuses with circuit breakers, safety switches, and surge protectors – to make your home a safe place, and protect valuable electrical items from damage. An electrical rewiring upgrade helps to ensure that your home wiring is equipped to meet your electrical needs and protect your family and property.
We can carry out an electrical safety inspection on your home to determine whether there are any safety issues and upgrade requirements in your electrical rewiring. Fuse boards, cables, switches and powerpoint outlets deteriorate over time and require regular checking. It is recommended that all houses have their electrical wiring systems checked at least every ten years.
Many fires each year are started in homes by old or faulty electrical wiring. The safety of the electrics in your home is our priority.
Does my house need rewiring?
There are several signs which indicate your home could need rewiring.
However, we always recommend a full electrical safety check to identify specific issues.
(Shocks from Taps) – This is often a warning sign that your home or office’s electric wiring or fuse board is faulty and that the water pipes are being used to earth to building’s power.
Often overlooked as nothing serious, but constant and severe drops in lighting is likely a result of circuit overloads or faulty connections that need to be discussed with a certified electrician.
If your home is over 40 years old and has not been rewired before the wiring insulation could be degraded or damaged.
Old wiring struggles to stand up to the demands of modern home appliances, often causing the safety switch or fuse to repeatedly trip.
Loose or damaged wiring may cause an arch and spark which can result in a small fire which damages the power point. This can present in a discolouration, charring or the slight melting of the power point cover material.
A persistent burning smell in the house which can’t be identified could indicate overheating of electrical wiring.
If your home has experienced damage from flooding or any other significant water damage (eg. from a fire hose) your wiring or the area around the wiring could become weakened or faulty.
These are just a few of the issues which can result in the need for a rewire. Sharpe Services carry out home wiring, home electrical services and all residential wiring that leads to a complete rewiring service.
