Is the Wiring in Your House Safe?
A defective wiring system in your home can cause damage to electrical appliances or potentially serious injury to occupants. Electrical rewiring should be considered periodically for your home. It’s most important for older Auckland homes or where there has been a recent electrical fault such as recurrent fuse problems or RCD’s that constantly trip.
Also, if you have parts of your house with rubber insulated wiring, this will need to be looked at. Rewiring includes adding light switches, fuse boards and various electrical devices to keep up with the latest technology and safety recommendations.
You may also need to upgrade your old switchboards for improved safety and performance.
Do You Need Rewiring?
The best way of knowing that your house needs rewiring is to ask an experienced electrician to look at all the wires in your house and determine their condition. Also if you’re selling your home, it’s a good idea to get rewiring as not only does this make the house safer but is also more attractive to prospective buyers.
This is one of the most common questions we have, and the answer as it is with major home projects, is that there’s a big potential cost range.
You can expect to pay $5,000 to $15,000 to rewire a standard Auckland home or Villa. The cost to rewire a home will depend on the size and age of your house, the ease with which our electrician can access the old wiring, and the quirks that we usually find in older Auckland homes.
