New homes shouldn’t need re-wiring but if you live in an older property (20 to 30 years old), it is unlikely to have been re-wired for several years. Whilst it may not be unsafe, it may not be able to cope with the demands of modern day living.

Signs that your home may need re-wiring include:

  • Circuit breakers that trip regularly
  • Slight shocks from switches or outlets
  • Frequent flickering or dimming lights
  • Damaged or exposed cables/wires.

If you spot any of these warning signs, you should talk to trusted, registered electricians in Hastings, they have experience in re-wiring properties and will re-wire your home whilst complying with legislation.

Is Electrical Re-Wiring a Big Job?

Re-wiring is a large but essential project that involves messy and disruptive work in every room.  Electrical cables are buried in the walls, floors and ceilings each providing power to your sockets and light switches.  It is usually best to vacate rooms when the work is being done. 

It is important to note that rewiring is not for amateurs and needs a careful approach by someone who knows what they are doing.  

It is recommended that electrical inspections take place every ten years for an owner-occupied dwelling and five years for a rented property.  Always check if the electrician is registered with a regulatory body such as NICEIC, ELECSA or NAPIT and insurance coverage.

If you are looking for a qualified electrician in Hastings to carry out electrical re-wiring or work in your property, call any one of these electricians today, they can advise on whether your home needs rewiring and what can be achieved.
