How Often Should A Rewire Be Done?
There are several opinions about how often you should to rewire a house:
1. After a specific time period usually about 25 years.
2. When a specific problem requires the householder to replace the wiring. This is a similar argument to only servicing your car after it breaks down.
3. Only when you have specific types of wiring, for instance rubber insulated wiring, otherwise wait for a problem. Rubber insulated wiring shows the wiring is old – rubber insulation has not been used in Ireland since the early 60’s.
4. When a series of problems suggest the need for a rewire, for instance constantly tripping RCDs or constantly blowing fuses.
5. When an electrical test and inspection says that a rewire is needed. Electricians can carry out an inspection of a house to assess the state of the wiring, if the inspection fails a rewire may be needed.
Given that a rewire should be done by a competent electrician the householder can save money by:
– Preparing the house for the rewire, for instance lifting carpets, moving furniture, placing dust covers and removing pictures from the walls.
– Not insisting on having full power available each night – a rewire will take more than one day, re-connecting power each day takes time (costs money).
– Clear the loft – wires will need to be run in the loft.
– Doing the post rewire decoration – rewiring involves making holes in walls, burying cables in walls – some decoration will be needed after the rewire.
