Property rewire services in Rainham
If you’re not sure whether your home needs rewiring, there are a few things you can look out for in order to tell. While you can read the full list in our blog here, the most obvious ones are:
- Your wiring hasn’t been checked since 2005: In 2005, new legislation came into place meaning that all electrical work must be carried out by a part-registered electrician. If yours hasn’t been checked out since, it might not be up to standard.
- Blown fuses & tripping breakers: Unless you’re living very extravagantly, there’s no reason for this to occur regularly, and if it is, it might be a sign that your electrics are outdated or unable to keep up with your demands.
- Flickering or dimming lights when you plug in an appliance: While you might be convinced you have a supernatural visitor, if this happens in your home it's highly unlikely to be paranormal. It usually means that your electrical appliances and lights are running on the same circuit and that the energy is not being transmitted effectively.
