How Can I Tell If My House Needs Rewiring?

Answer

There are various ways to tell if your house needs rewiring such as if you are having power cuts regularly and you have an old fuse box, or if you have the old fitting of a socket on a skirting board. It is also likely that if your house has not been rewired for the past 15 years or more, it requires rewiring. If you still experience a problem determining if your property requires rewiring, then call for help from a professional electrician.
