It covers all the hard wiring and items such as fuseboards, sockets lighting, air conditioning systems and any other fixed wiring system.

Rewires – South Yorkshire

Are you in line with 17th edition wiring regulations?

Keeping your electrics up-to-date with the current Wiring Regulations reduces the risk of any faults occurring and therefore reduces the potential for electrical shocks or fire.


Does you property require rewiring?

All cables, sockets, fuseboards etc. deteriorate over time, to prevent any electrical works becoming faulty and dangerous, it is recommended to have them checked periodically. If the electrics have deteriorated or are faulty, they will need to be replaced to ensure the safety of your property.

Many houses in the UK still have old wiring which can be dangerous and will need replacing. To fully assess the condition of any electrical installation,  an electric installation condition report would need to be completed, but there are some warning signs you can look out for:

  • Any overheating at socket outlets.
  • Any round pin sockets or sockets mounted in skirting boards.
  • Round light or black switches.
  • Fuse box with a wooden back, cast iron switches, or a mixture of fuses.
  • Fuses that blow regularly.
  • Obvious signs of damage to socket-outlets, switches, and lights.

A Coole Electrical provide full/partial rewires for all types of properties from domestic to commercial to industrial, so give us a call today on 01226 296425 for your quotation.
