When Do You Need To Call Electrician Crawley For Domestic Rewiring?

Ever walked into a room and thought, “Are the lights just flickering?” or found yourself in the dark because of a tripped circuit breaker? If you said “yes”, your house is probably dropping hints that it’s time to call an electrician in Crawley!

Just like we need a full-body health check-up every year, our homes need a full-circuit check-up every now and then too. It is not only about a flickering bulb, rewiring should be done to look for faults and short-circuits in your age-old home wiring.

If you care about your home and its electrical system, give it a professional electrician check every ten years apart. If you rent the property or there's a change of tenancy, it should be checked every five years. This will help prevent any electrical mishaps and keep your home running smoothly.

Here, you need to remember that it’s not always about what you see, but keeping you and your loved ones safe. Let’s find out when and how your property needs domestic rewriting from an electrician in Redhill (or elsewhere in the UK)!

What Is Domestic Rewiring & Why Is It Necessary?

Imagine your house as a giant electric circuit with wires running through its veins. These wires have an expiry date like everything else on this earth. Over time, they can wear out, just like an old pair of shoes. That’s where domestic rewiring comes in!

It doesn't matter if your house is still lighting up and your appliances are getting the electricity needed to work. Wiring can become outdated, regardless of its functional value.

You may wonder why this is necessary. Well, old or faulty wiring can lead to dangerous situations like electrical fires or shocks. Not exactly the sparks you want flying around your house, right? Plus, if you plan on selling your house, having it rewired can increase its overall market value. So, while it might seem like a big task, think of it as a spa day for your house, keeping it safe, efficient, and ready for the future!

How Do Know If Your Home Needs Rewiring?

It’s not rocket science to look for signs of rewiring cases at your home. Here is a list of all the telltale signs that you need an electrician in Dorking (or anywhere else in West Sussex) for your domestic rewiring project.

  • Your house has reached a silver jubilee - Do you remember the year of establishment of your home property? That is crucial because once your house is over 25 years old, it becomes almost mandatory to fully rewire it as per the government's electrical standards.
  • Dimming or flickering lights - If your lights flicker or become dim quite often, it may also be a sign that your electrical system needs to be replaced instead of a problem with the lightbulbs. After all, it’s always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to electrical issues!
  • Your fuses are blowing - If your fuses are constantly blowing, it’s like your house is waving a red flag, saying, “Hey, my electrics aren’t feeling too good!” This could be due to a pesky appliance causing trouble. But if you can’t figure out which one, it’s probably time to call in an electrician.
  • Light electric shocks or static charges on appliances - Getting a little zap or static charge from your appliances whenever you plug them in should be a direct sign to call an electrician immediately. Somehow, the appliance bodies have been short-circuited with the supply wiring, which can also slowly burn out the insulations – a serious safety risk.
  • Outlets and switches with discolouration - Do you notice brown or burnt marks around the plug holes or the outlet casings? God forbid if you do. Run straight to an electrician, as this is how electrical fire mishaps occur! The brown marks usually indicate the connections produce strong sparks and that the ground wire has been compromised.
  • Smell of rubber or plastic burning - Are you noticing a continuous burning odour in your house that you can’t seem to trace? If that is the case, this is because of defective electrical systems. These need to be replaced immediately, and electricians will advise you to switch off your electrics at the circuit to avoid additional fire hazards.

Cost Estimation of Domestic Rewiring

The cost of rewiring a house varies depending on its size. The final cost and the number of new electrical parts needed for your home will be determined during an electrical check-up. But, if only some of the wiring needs to be changed, then the cost will be much lower. For that, you need to contact a good electrician in Crawley (or wherever your house is).

In The End

Domestic rewiring is about the safety of your loved ones and making your home as good as new. If you see any signs of faulty wiring, like flickering lights, burning smells, tripping breakers, or damaged outlets—always call a reputed electrician in Crawley (like me!) for domestic rewiring

A rewiring becomes compulsory even if you don't spot signs of faults, but you realise that the property has grown older than 25 years. This is when the wiring wears out, becomes outdated and is no more up to the current standards. As a highly experienced electrician in Redhill, I can provide you with a professional and reliable domestic rewiring service, using high-quality materials and following the latest regulations.
