Electrical Rewiring in Liverpool
As part of our comprehensive range of electrical services, SP Electrical supply complete electrical rewiring in Liverpool to ensure your present system adheres to all contractual and legal requirements and obligations. It’s vital to ensure that your existing electrical installation is fitted and working properly, as poorly wired properties are dangerous and can pose potential fire hazards.
Why do I need to Rewire?
If a property has not been rewired inside the past 15 years or so, there’s a possibility that much of the existing wiring will require upgrading in order to bring it in line with current standards. There’s a strong possibility of needing a replacement consumer unit (fuse box) in addition to substantial, if not full, rewiring if you’re planning on significant refurbishments that constitute a material alteration, as defined in Part 2 of The Building Regulations 2010.
You may need a rewire in the following instances:
- 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- An outdated fuse box/consumer unit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
Costs of rewiring differ based on the size of the property in question and amount of restorative decoration work required. Early in the refurbishment process, it can pay to obtain the advice of an electrician for these reasons.
