Most of the time, rewiring a property is never given much thought but can prove to be quite costly, let alone dangerous if not addressed, especially in older properties.
There are times when a rewire is required as part of a project such as extensions to the home or redesigning the layout of a home or office space.
At the McGuinness Group Ltd, we are NIEEC certified electricians with a wealth of experience in our team. We have become a trusted choice for homeowners, landlords and commercial property managers.
Domestic properties over 25 years old will generally never have had a full rewire, however electrical technology has advanced at such a rapid pace over that period that many installs are now considered dated and below new standards.
We now live in a world where energy saving is a conscious choice of living and nowadays it's interwoven and embedded into smart home technology. We are seeing more and more people opt for the smart home choice in a rewiring project.
People tend to put off Home and property rewires due to many factors but mainly people feel like a property rewire would be a massive disruption. In essence, there will be some disruption, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be too much of an inconvenience if you choose experienced and certified electricians such as McGuinness Group Ltd.
At the start of the process, we would carry out an electrical survey to establish that your property wiring is safe. Then we would then remove the electrical wiring from every room and upgrade and re-chase along the walls, then upgrade and reposition the light sockets, switches and mains plug sockets.
Should it be required, we would also upgrade the mains board/consumer unit to a more robust, future-proofed model. We would also fit 'smart plugs' and 'smart switches' (if required) around the house to make your home living environment much more convenient and comfortable.
The benefits as stated above firstly Energy Efficiency, secondly future-proofed and smart home compatibility. Most importantly though is safety, over 12,000 domestic fires per year are caused by faulty electrics, out of date electrical installations and dodgy wiring jobs. It's better to be safe than sorry, so if you're thinking about getting it done then it's probably a good idea not to put it off any further.
