Electrical Rewiring: What Does It Involve?

Electrical rewiring is necessary to guarantee the safety of the electrical system in your house. It also ensures that your house is compliant with the current regulations. As a homeowner, it is your job to maintain the condition of your house’s electrics. 

Faulty wiring can cause injury and pose a fire hazard. That said, you must keep an eye on the condition of your electronics to guarantee that you can identify potential problems before they become serious.

What is Electrical Rewiring

Electrical cables are found under the flooring or through the walls. During a rewiring process, the flooring will be lifted while the wall is drilled into. In that case, it is a messy job. 

That’s why it is typically done during a home renovation. Rewiring is completed at the same stage as plumbing or heating system jobs. It is done before cosmetic work is being started. 

During a rewiring, our licensed electrician at USA Electrical Repairs, Inc. will install new cables, fit new black boxes, rewire your telephone and power, etc. 

The first stage of rewiring involves replacing cables, wires, circuits, and black boxes. Then, on the second stage, we install lighting fit and faceplates on sockets. 

Why Perform Rewiring 

The main reason for rewiring your house is for the overall safety of your family. When it is done, you will have peace of mind knowing that you are using new and safer electrical wiring. It also lowers the risk of an electrical fire. Plus, it guarantees that it is compliant with the new regulations. 

Something to keep in mind: if you are selling your house, it increases the value of your house. 

Rewiring is required every 25 years. However, within that period, electrical inspections must be conducted every ten years. If you are a landlord, you should have it inspected every five years to ensure that the electrical system is in good working condition. 

But, you do not need to wait 25 years to rewire your house. If your electronics have become unsafe or if there is some new regulation, then you need to have it rewired. Remember that the regulations exist to ensure your safety. They can help to prevent any fire or injury. 

If you notice any discoloration around your sockets or plugs, you should contact our licensed electrician team. It is a sign that your house needs rewiring. 

Rewiring should also be done if your fuses keep blowing or if you hear crackling noises. If your lights flicker constantly, then they indicate that you need to invest in an electrical rewiring project. 

This project is a significant investment. However, it is all worth it. 

To make sure that the rewiring project is conducted properly, you must only hire a licensed electrician. The electrician should be registered and insured.
