How to know if you need to rewire your house

The first step in getting your house rewired is knowing that the house needs rewiring before calling an electrical expert to check it out. You should not wait until your house starts showing you signs of electrical failure before you rewire it. If you do, you will be exposing yourself to electrocution and other electrical dangers.

These signs below should help you know when to contact London Electrix for your electrical rewiring.

The house age

Houses built in the 1980s but are still standing would definitely need rewiring, especially if no one has renovated the house recently. Homes built in this period have aluminium wires instead of copper wires. They also did not have earth cables which are common in modern houses.

Do not hesitate to contact us now for an electrical rewiring if you are living in a house built in the early 1980s that has not been recently renovated.

Aluminium wires

If your house has aluminium wires, you need an electrical rewiring as soon as possible because aluminium wires are more than 50% flammable and prone to fire outbreaks compared to copper wires.

A house wired with aluminium materials is hazardous, so contact London Electrix now to change the aluminium wires in your house.

Wooden back boxes

If you have wooden boxes behind your switches and other electrical accessories, it is an indication that the house is old and needs electrical rewiring. If you are not sure your house has wooden electrical back boxes, look around for plug sockets or fuse boxes that have wood behind them, but if you cannot check for it yourself, contact us now to assess your house and check if you need to rewire it.

Minor details

Look out for minor details that could tell you about the age of the house or when the house was last re-wired. You can find the date on installation on the customer unit or the fuse box. However, in some cases, the date may not give you an idea of how old the house is, but an idea of the installation date.

Old wiring

If your wires are old or frayed, it is an obvious sign that your house needs rewiring. Old cables are likely to cause short circuit or electrocution.

How to confirm you need electrical rewiring

These signs listed above should indicate you need an electrical rewiring, but before you carry out the rewiring, you need to be a 100% sure your house needs it. To carry out an electrical rewiring, you need to have regular electrical testing, electrical survey, and inspection. This inspection and checks should be done by an electrical expert to determine if the house needs rewiring.

At London Electrix, before we carry out any electrical rewiring, we will perform a complete rewiring survey of your house. During the rewiring process, we will perform an electric test on the entire house and an initial inspection of your property. We will also test the power circuits, consumer units, circuits, and sockets, and also ensure that they all meet the current electrical installation regulations (BS7671) 18TH Edition.

We will notify the building control organisation of the work we carried out on your building. The notification would contain the details of the work done, and we would give you an electrical installation certificate.

Consideration before an electrical rewiring
