When would I need a rewire?
If your electrical wiring is old in your Ogbourne St George property, you may need a rewire. The easiest way to check this is to look at the colour of the electrical cables. If you find black coloured cables going to the fuseboard (Consumer Unit) this is a sign that the wiring needs to have a qualified electrician check. The modern cables are either grey or white and insulated with a PVC coating. Old black cables are rubber which eventually will perish and decay.
An old fuse board (Consumer Unit) is also an indicator that the electrics may require upgrading as there could be metal conduits running to sockets and lights.
Please do check the list below to see if you may need a rewire or an electrical test:
- Has your wiring had a completed check in the last 10 years by a qualified electrician?
- Are you at all concerned about your electrical installation?
- Does your fuseboard have replaceable fuse wire?
- Do your fuses blow regularly?
- Do you have lights that use twisted old type flex?
- Sockets or plugs – do they also get hot or have burn marks?
- Do you need to use extension leads?
- Do you have flex that is rubber covered?
- Are your cables also missing an earth cable?
- Do you use electrical equipment outside?
If you would like one of our electricians in Ogbourne St George to provide a visual inspection of your electric installation or a full EICR (Electrical Installation Condition report) they can provide this for you. They can also advise you of any electrical work that may need to carry out.
Wiring Checks for New House Buyers in Ogbourne St George
Moving home or purchasing another property? We would recommend that you have a full EICR carried out to assess and identify the condition of the electrical installation prior to exchange of contracts. Surveyors, when undertaking a house survey, now regularly recommend that an electrical report should carry out. This is to make sure that any essential electrical work required is known to the purchaser as soon as possible. In some cases we have found that where a lot of work is needed, the cost of this has had a renegotiation against the house purchase price.
