Rewiring & New Wiring in Swindon
Our electricians carry out new wiring and rewiring to homes and commercial premises in and around Swindon. If a property does require a rewire, our Electricians are the right choice for your rewiring requirements. They are fully trained and qualified up to the highest standards including the ability to test and report on the work of a third party electrician. Whether it is a house, outbuilding or an office. Our electricians provide only the highest level of electrical competency and all are 18th Edition (City & Guilds 2382-18) qualified.
Why would my property need a rewire?
Your property or commercial premises may need a rewire if the wiring is old or is insufficient and no longer meets your needs. The quickest way to check is by looking at the colour of the cables. If you find black coloured cables going to the consumer unit (fuseboard), this shows that the wiring needs to be professionally checked. Modern cables are either white or grey and insulated by a coating of PVC. The old black cables are rubber which over time decay and perish.
An old fuse board also indicates that your electrical installation requires upgrading as there could be metal conduits running to lights and sockets.
Below is a 10 point checklist to see if you need an electrical test or rewire.
- Has your wiring had a check done in the last 10 years by a qualified electrician?
- 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 missing an earth cable?
- Do you also use electrical equipment outside?
- Are you at all concerned about your electrical installation?
If you would like one of our local Swindon electricians to provide a visual inspection of your electrics or a full EICR (Electrical Installation Condition report) we can provide this for you and advise you of any electrical work that also may or may not be needed.
Wiring Checks for New House Buyers
If you are moving home or purchasing another property we would recommend that a qualified electrician carries out a full EICR to assess and identify the condition of the electrical installation prior to exchange of contracts. We are now commonly finding that when the house survey is being carried out, many surveyors recommend that an electrical report is carried out. This is to ensure that the purchaser knows of any essential required electrical work as soon as possible. In some cases we have also found that where a lot of electrical work is required, the cost of this may has been negotiated against the house purchase price.
