Why do I need to Rewire?
The chances are the majority of the present wiring will need an update to comply with present safety standards in the event your property hasn’t been rewired during the last 15 years. There’s a strong probability of needing a replacement consumer unit (fuse box) in addition to substantial, if not full, rewiring if you’re planning on significant refurbishments that amount to a material alteration, as defined in Part 2 of The Building Regulations 2010. Conversions and extensions must satisfy the Part P: Electrical Safety guidelines fully as they are classed as ‘new work’. To make certain that earthing and cross bonding requirements are met and also that the extra load produced by the new work will be managed safely, all existing wiring must be brought up to standard. At GAP Electrical, we can normally determine whether or not a property has recently been rewired through checking the fuse box, electricity meter and also any exposed areas. To avoid unexpected surprises, it is often a good plan to have an inspection undertaken if you are looking at buying a property. For example, a complete rewire is usually necessary if the house features a mixture of sockets and switches, surface-mounted wiring or an out-of-date consumer unit.
You might need a rewire in the following scenarios:
- New works
- Refurbishments constituting a material alteration
- An outdated fuse box/consumer unit
- A mixture of styles of switches and sockets
- Surface-mounted wiring
- Non-PVCu-insulated wiring (particularly rubber, fabric or lead-insulated wiring)
- Old-style round pin sockets and dolly switches
