When do I need a house rewire?
There are no set guidelines as to when a property needs a rewire. Just because your wiringâ€™s old, doesnâ€™t mean itâ€™s unsafe; it may not need a full house rewire. Many factors can affect the wear and tear of your electrical installation, including the materials used and how your property has been used.
We would advise that a Periodic Inspection Report (now known as a Periodic Installation Assessment Report) is carried out on owner-occupied properties at least every 10 years and every five years in rented accommodation.The report will certify whether the electrics in a property are safe and tell you if anything needs upgrading.
You should carry out regular visual checks around the house on the condition of your cables, switches, sockets and other accessories. If you notice anything unusual â€“ burn marks on plugs and sockets, sounds of â€˜arcingâ€™ (buzzing or crackling), fuses blowing or circuit-breakers tripping â€“ contact usÂ for help on 01884 235800or by Â clicking hereÂ Contact.
