Keeping outdated electrical wiring on your property is, to put it quite simply, a bad idea. If your wiring is outdated, there’s a good chance your circuit breaker is as well, which opens you up to many risks ranging from inefficient power consumption right through to fire and electrocution hazards.
If it sounds like a serious matter, that’s because it is. The Australian government has created a body of laws – commonly referred to as the AS 3000 Wiring Rules – that we at Starpoint Electrical Services follow closely to ensure that all our electrical wiring services are done in a safe and efficient manner.
Issues that can be solved by electrical rewiring
Here’s a list of issues that can be solved with effective rewiring. Some of these, like overlamping, indicate illegal code violations that should be dealt with promptly.
- Flickering lights
- Breakers being blown regularly
- Discoloured outlets and switches (a result of burning)
- Electrical shock from switch or outlet
These issues, while troubling and bothersome on their own, are essentially symptoms that inform you of the improper function of your home’s electrical wiring.
