All houses need rewiring every few decades. If you currently own a property or are looking to buy a property that is more than 25-35 years old and hasn’t been rewired recently, it will likely need to be electrically rewired to bring the property up to current regulations and safety standards. If it is unknown when your property was last rewired, electrical testing of your wiring should be considered, particularly if you are contemplating purchasing a property
As the demand for additional electrical devices has significantly increased, your electrical system must be safe and able to keep up with demand.
Since Cardiff has a lot of old houses, we are often tasked with full house rewires that involve additional lighting and sockets as well as repositioning of sockets. However, many of our customers in Cardiff also require partial rewires and this may involve upgrading wiring in single rooms or extensions and loft conversions. If you are planning a new electric shower installation, this may be another good opportunity to replace wiring too.
When it comes to rewiring a house, there are two methods, which include surface installation and flushing.
A surface installation involves hiding wiring within plastic casing or trunking that is then fixed to the ceilings or walls. Flushing on the other hand involves cables being flushed into the property’s walls by removing the plaster. Wiring is then inserted and the walls are re-plastered afterwards.
Out of the two options, flushing is more permanent but the most appropriate installation will be determined by the occupiers, as it will depend on how much redecorating they will need to carry out after the rewire.
Once either method of rewiring has been successfully installed, it will be time to install the electrical sockets, switches and accessories. Once all the circuits have been installed, testing will begin to ensure your newly fitted circuits comply with the current regulations and safety standards.
At Assured Electrical Solutions, all decisions will be considered. From the addition or removal of light switches and sockets to the type of installation, we carefully plan all of our house rewiring projects to best suit your requirements.
