Rewiring old houseIf you own a property that is between 25-30 years old, you may be in danger! The effects of poor or worn out wiring could be potentially devastating. Even if the property you own is being renovated, it is essential that you know if any rewiring work is necessary in order to alleviate any possible risks or hazards from faulty wires. Faulty wires and appliances can also lead to injuries such as electrocution and potential fire hazards, which emphasises the importance of properly tending to and rewiring a property correctly.

Read on to find out more about how your property can be rewired quickly and efficiently with our expert electricians.

Wait! How safe are you in your house? I’m not talking about your newly installed security alarms and CCTV cameras.

Your home’s electrical wiring is one of the most important elements of your home safety that is often overlooked. If your home or office has faulty wiring or is not rewired for decades, it will need a full & partial rewiring to ensure maximum safety.

At King Electricians, we strongly recommend getting your wiring inspected, especially if your home is older than a couple of decades.

How to Tell if There is Need of Rewiring a House?

Well, there are some deadly indicators that your place needs a rewire. Some of the most prominent signs are:

  • General wear and tear
  • Frequent blowing fuses
  • Tripping circuits
  • Cracked or damaged insulation
  • Burning smells
  • Fire damage
  • Buzzing sounds
  • Electric shocks
  • Sparks when plugging or unplugging a cord
  • Flickering or dimming bulbs

Though all of these issues may not need a rewire rather a fix of certain appliances, you must get the problem inspected to know the core reason behind it.

Other Potential Risks Needing a Rewire are:

  • An old property If you are living in a 30 to 40 year old property, it may need a full rewire.
  • Two-pronged outlets Such outlets are not usually grounded, thus creating a safety hazard.
  • Aluminum wiring If your house has aluminium instead of copper wiring it will be prone to overheating and may need completely rewiring.
  • Overuse of extension cords Using a lot of extension cords can put additional stress on your house wiring.
  • Extension or renovation If you have added new appliances to your home or have renovated it recently, your house will need a rewire.

If there is any situation that makes you think that ‘Does my house need a rewire?’, it’s time to call a professional to inspect the situation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Rewiring is the process when all or part of the wiring in your house or commercial property is replaced and the equipment is upgraded to ensure safety.

If your home is thirty to forty years old or is being renovated or extended, it will need a rewire. You will also need to rewire a house if there’s any electrical breakdown or outlet shortage. Rewiring ensures that your old fittings are updated and sockets are best located. Rewiring also allows you to install smart controls and energy-saving lighting systems to reduce electricity bills.

It depends on the type of rewire and the size of the building. A partial rewire will take fewer days than a full rewire. Likewise, rewiring a house will take less time than rewiring a big commercial building. It usually takes around 6 to 9 days to do the rewiring of a three-bed detached house and 10 to 15 days to complete the rewire of a four-bed detached house.


Although a homeowner might be able do their own electrical work, they’d need to have the work inspected by proper authorities and take out proper permits. Don’t compromise the safety of your home and family by undertaking electrical work yourself.

We suggest calling a licensed electrician unless you have the proper training to do electrical work.

Though aluminium wiring itself is not dangerous, faulty terminations in receptacles, switches, light fixtures, and other equipment can cause issues. Aluminium oxidizes over time and the conductor keeps on expanding and contracting, which can lead to heat problems where wiring is not properly terminated.

Another major issue with aluminium wiring is that it can deteriorate behind devices and cause fire hazards. If you ever experience any issue with aluminium wiring in your place, call a licensed electrician to inspect the problem.
