Five points to consider before rewiring your house
1. Understand your purpose
Do you need to rewire your home to satisfy your insurance company? Would you like to rewire your house to enhance how your family functions in your home? Perhaps it is a combination of both? Before rewiring your home, it is best to understand what you are trying to achieve. This way, Chris can work out an electrical plan that fulfils your criteria and budget.
2. Budget accordingly
It is difficult to know how much it will cost to rewire your home. The cost depends on multiple factors including how big your house is; accessibility and ease of rewiring; and the quality of fittings chosen. A basic house rewire may cost as little as $3,000 while a complicated house rewire may cost $12,000.
3. Redesign your living space
Consider how your family currently uses your home and what the limitations are. Do you have enough sockets in the kitchen for all your appliances? Would you like to place your TV socket in a clever space, for example behind a curtain, so the socket isn’t seen? Aesthetics are as important as functionality. For example, strip lighting installed under the breakfast bar in the kitchen looks fantastic.
4. Consider the timeframe
The size and complexity of your rewiring determine how long it will take. Chris may only need to come in for a couple of days. Other times, if there are other tradespeople involved, the job can take longer. At all times, Chris will minimise the disruption to your home as much as possible. For example, if the stove needs to be reconnected at the end of the day so that you can cook that night, that will be done.
5. Get a second opinion or price
