Why Do I Need Home Rewiring?

A range of reasons could lead to you requiring home rewiring. Some of the many factors and common signs that indicate your old wiring needs updating are:

  • Safety switches and circuit breakers tripping frequently
  • Old, deteriorating wire
  • Overheating outlets
  • Light bulbs that don’t last very long
  • Power fluctuation
  • Fuses blowing regularly
  • Mild electrical shocks from appliances

If you are experiencing any of the above, or simply want to update the wiring in your house, it’s time to call the qualified electricians at Metropolitan Electrical Contractors for a complete house rewire. Aged wiring is a fire hazard, and if you have a house with old metal conduits you really should upgrade to copper wiring for safety’s sake. We are experts with more than 25 years of house rewiring experience all over Australia and pride ourselves on the quality of our electrical work.

The Benefits of Installing Copper Wiring

In addition to the safety benefits that come with house rewiring, there are numerous additional benefits to getting your home rewired with copper wiring.

Older homes might have outdated wiring systems, such as knob-and-tube wiring or aluminium wiring, which can present safety risks. Copper is renowned for its excellent conductivity, durability, resistance to corrosion, and heat tolerance, reducing the risk of electrical fires. Additionally, as older homes are retrofitted with modern appliances such as air conditioning and gaming consoles, as well as light switches, the demand on the electrical system increases. Copper wiring can handle this increased load efficiently. When updating the electrical system in an older home, it’s crucial to work with a licensed electrician to ensure that the installation meets current safety standards and local building codes.

Rewiring Service and Repair

You do not want to leave your wiring or electrical panel in disrepair. It could lead to some dangerous outcomes. If you don’t repair your faulty wiring, possible risks include:

  • Unnecessary fluctuations to your electricity bill
  • Costly jobs in the future
  • Damage to your electrical goods
  • House fires and other electrical accidents on your property

The best way to avoid large-scale and more costly issues is to act quickly by calling a qualified electrician in to inspect the wiring. Whilst rewiring your home can be a lengthy and costly job, it is something that should not wait. Never put your safety or your house and property at risk for the benefit of saving a few dollars.

Your walls contain an assortment of wires and circuits filling your home with electricity. The circuits are often wired in parallel so you can operate lights, appliances and powerpoints independently. It also prevents widespread problems if one part of a circuit is faulty.

A qualified Metropolitan electrician can assess your home, if you’re in doubt, and provide advice on what to do.
