With all the new housing developments springing up everywhere, many of us prefer to purchase an older home with its thicker walls, bigger gardens and higher ceilings. In particular we seem to enjoy an improvement project that we can get our teeth into and turn into a labour of love. It is important to consider though that over the years others may have carried out renovations before you, resulting in faulty or damaged wiring.
As a rule of thumb, we recommend that if your house is over 25 years old you should have an electrical inspection carried out to determine if the house needs rewiring.
Whilst the thought of rewiring your home may seem like a daunting task in reality it is not as disruptive as it first sounds. The benefits far outweigh any inconvenience and you will be left with a safe and more efficient home.
