How Do You Know If Your House Needs Rewiring?

This is probably the first question people ask themselves before they decide to get their house rewired. You do not need to wait for danger signs of electrocution or short-circuiting before calling for help. Below are some signs that will help indicate that your house needs to be rewired.

  • Age of the house
    If the house you live in was built around or before 1984, then most definitely, it needs to be rewired — unless it has been renovated recently. Houses that were built before 1984 did not have earth cables, and instead of copper wires, they used Aluminium wires. If you require the services of an electrician for rewiring your house, you can contact Electric Works London.
  • Presence of aluminum wires
    If you notice Aluminium wires in your home, then you are in serious need of rewiring. This is because Aluminium wires are 55 times more flammable and likely to cause a fire than copper wires— living in a house wired with aluminium wires means living in a house with live wires that can be very dangerous. If your house still has Aluminium wires, then you need to have them rewired.
  • Wooden back boxes
    Wood in the house, especially behind the accessory such as switch and socket is not good— it only means the home may be older than you think. If you can, try looking around your house, especially around plug sockets, fuse boxes or even wiring that is visible for any signs of wood. If you cannot do this on your own, you can contact certified electrician to help you out. Any wood presence around electrical outlets may likely be old and will need changing.
  • Check Out the Minor Details
    If you are unsure about the age of your house, or whether your home needs rewiring, take a look at your fuse box or the customer unit — it is likely to have the date of installation on it. This can give you an idea of that age of the house. Although it might just be the date the unit was installed and no reference to the age of the house.
  • Old wiring
    This is the most obvious sign that a house needs rewiring. Frayed or old wires need to be changed to avoid electrocution or short-circuit.

How To Be Sure That Your House Needs Rewiring

Although we have already established that noticing some signs around the house means it needs to be rewired, you still must be a hundred percent certain that it does. To do so, you need to call for periodic inspection and testing and an electrical survey— the electrical company will conduct a rewiring survey on your property and determine if it needs to be rewired or not.
