Signs Your Home is Due a House Rewire

Getting your home rewired is a big step and can be a large investment into your future. However, it can be tricky to know when a rewire is the right thing to do. To help you out, we have created a guide explaining when we recommend a rewire. If you are still unsure, don't hesitate to get in touch with our team today!

Your fuses often blow

If the fuses in your home regularly blow, or you have circuits that often trip- it may be time t consider rewiring your home. If you have investigated the appliances and found no issues, rewiring is the next step to ensure you are safe from any electrical faults.

Your sockets or switches appear brown

If there is any discolouration on your electrical outlets, this is a big problem. Browning on sockets can be caused by tiny fires created by loose connections inside your wires, which create arcs of electricity. This is a huge danger than can be avoided by rewiring your home. 

Flickering lights throughout your home

If you have just one light that is flickering, it is more likely to be an issue with your bulb. However, if there are several lights flickering throughout your home, it is a sign of an electrical fault that should be checked out immediately.

You often smell burning

If you can smell burning and can't find an obvious cause, it may be to do with your electrical system. This may also be the case if you hear a constant buzzing sound throughout your home. Buzzing may be caused by dimmers but can also be a sign of something much more severe.

You have received an electric shock

Any electric shock, no matter how small it may be, is a sign of a problem within your home and should be checked out immediately. This is also the case if you see any sparks near your outlets. Don't let these issues go unreported!
