The life expectancy of a new electrical installation is approximately 20 Years. There are many factors that affect the life expectancy i.e. the type of wiring and how it was used. As the life of an installation is pretty long, it is easy to forget that it will eventually need replacing.
Electrical rewiring involves the replacement of old, dangerous or non-compliant electrical equipment i.e. cables, fittings, distribution boards (fuse boxes) and Whitehouse Electrical are very experienced in this type of electrical work.
Contemplating a complete rewire is a huge undertaking but very worthwhile in updating your home electrics to meet current regulations and most importantly, safety standards. A rewire will also make the electrical wiring in your home more capable of meeting today’s demands in terms of electrical appliances.
If your electrical wiring was installed many years ago (especially pre 1970’s) it is likely that the installation was not planned to accommodate the level of electrical equipment that you have today;
- You may not have enough sockets in the right places
- You may use extension leads which may cause your appliances to overload electrical circuits
- You may also want additional lighting or power to a garage or shed

Does Your House Need A Rewire?
Many houses in the UK still have old wiring. This is not only unsafe and a potential fire hazard but is also less efficient than modern systems. It can also affect the resale value of your house, as old wiring almost certainly is highlighted as a major problem during a survey.
If you have old wiring in your house, for example fabric or rubber covered flex you should seriously consider having a complete rewire.
Here at Whitehouse Electrical we can completely redesign your electrical system to include sufficient socket outlets located in the right places to accommodate your needs, a state of the art consumer unit to replace your old fuse box which will contain residual current devices and circuit breakers.
