How often should a rewire be carried out
There are many different opinions about how often you should rewire a house:
- After a specific time period usually about 30 years.
- When a specific problem requires the householder to replace the wiring.
- Only when you have specific types of wiring, for instance rubber insulated wiring. Rubber insulated wiring shows the wiring is old – rubber insulation has not been used in the UK since the early 60’s.
- When a series of problems suggest the need for a rewire, for instance constantly tripping RCDs or constantly blowing fuses.
- 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.
Think of your house in a similar way to how you treat your car – do you wait for a problem before putting your car into the garage? Do you regularly service your car?
The householder should remember that faulty electrical wiring can cause fires or damage electrical appliances when making the decision over whether to do a rewire.
