When buying a home built before the 1980s it is imperative the wiring is checked by a licensed electrical inspector or registered electrical contractor prior to moving in. It is very likely that the electrical wiring has deteriorated, is outdated and unsafe and that the property will need to be rewired.
It is recommended that a property is rewired every 25-30 years to align it with current building regulations and that electrical safety inspections are undertaken every 10 years. Your property might need electrical rewiring if an electrical check uncovers that your property has deteriorating cables, exposed wires, flickering lights or a burning smell.
Avoid the frustration and danger of major electrical faults by booking a comprehensive home electrical safety inspection today with Prokop Electrical for your own peace of mind.
