Reasons Why Rewiring Your Home Is Worth It

Rewiring Services | Zoom Electricians

Although the average cost to rewire a house may appear prohibitively expensive, purchasing older homes with outdated wiring systems can cost more to rewire. Even if your property is being renovated, it is critical that you know if any rewiring work is required to eliminate any potential risks or hazards from faulty wires; faulty wires and appliances can also cause injuries such as electrocution and potential fire hazards, emphasizing the importance of properly tending to and rewiring a property.

If your home has been experiencing power outages, you may need to consider rewiring the electrical system. Zoom Electricians‘ experts are ready to assist you with your house rewiring services needs, from inspection to replacement.

A variety of factors determine the lifespan of your home’s electrical wiring. While you wish the system could last forever, chances are it won’t. Furthermore, because everything is contained within the walls, the wiring status of your home can be a mystery. Electrical wiring replacement can be an expensive but worthwhile investment. Here are some of the benefits of rewiring your home.

It’s About Time

  • If your house is older, the wiring will most likely need to be replaced. Even newer homes may require electrical renovations depending on the circumstances and type of wiring. On average, the wiring in your home lasts about 20 years. Having a fully qualified professional inspect the wiring every ten years is still a good idea to ensure everything is working properly and up to code.

You Require More Power

  • And who wouldn’t? You may have some larger, high-power appliances that require more energy than your current wiring can provide. Breakers that are frequently tripped are clear evidence of this. Periodic power outages may indicate that it is time to replace the wiring. Furthermore, the number of outlets available per room may indicate the need for an electrical upgrade. Your home should have a properly grounded outlet every six to eight feet.

Increase The Resale Value Of Your Home

  • Maybe you’re thinking about selling shortly. An updated electrical system increases your home’s value and appeals to potential buyers.

Deal a Lower Insurance Premium

  • Insurance companies recognize that a rewired home is better maintained and safer. As a result, homeowners who upgrade their home’s electrical wiring have a better chance of receiving lower insurance premiums.


  • Above all, your family’s safety is the most important reason to rewire your home. Old, damaged, or inadequate wiring can be dangerous. Electrical fires are frequently caused by outdated wiring. Older wiring quickly heats up and cannot handle the power demands of newer appliances. Take note of the following:
  1. Dim or flickering lights
  2. A burning odor
  3. Sounds of buzzing
  4. When you insert or remove a plug, it emits sparks.
  5. Light bulbs that frequently fail in the socket

Things That Involved In A House Rewire

The rewiring project is time-consuming, but knowing what to expect can make the process less intimidating. Your electrician will walk you through the work that will be done and will be able to answer any questions you may have.

An experienced electrician will provide you with a quote for your rewiring project. Always ensure that the person is qualified for the position. The electrician must be qualified to test and inspect the wiring and be registered with a governing body. It will give you confidence that the contractor will complete and assess the work safely and following regulatory standards.

At this point, you will be able to go over your requirements with the electrician and determine the scope of the work. You will also receive an estimate of the cost. It is important to remember that rewiring a house is not cheap, but investing in you and your property’s safety is always worthwhile.

Many electricians will quote the expenses to rewire a house as a cost per square foot. As a result, it’s useful to know whether your quoted price is comparable to the national average. The average cost of rewiring a home is between $2 and $4 per square foot.

Many jobs will need to be completed during the rewiring, and while each project will be unique due to the client’s unique needs, you should first complete the following tasks:

  • Replaced the Back boxes
  • The wiring will be replaced entirely.
  • Lighting and power circuits will both be updated.
  • Install the new fixtures and fittings
  • If necessary, you can relocate fixtures and fittings.
  • Installing technology such as built-in speakers or lighting is an option.

In general, the rewiring portion of the job will be completed first, followed by any faceplates on power sockets and switches.

Many people are also concerned that they will be unable to stay in their homes while the work is being done. The good news is that you are not required to leave your home while the electricians are working. However, it would be best if you kept in mind that there would be some mess and dust and the inconvenience of having people working in your home.

Staying somewhere else while the work is being done is a good idea if you have the option. If you choose to stay at home, your electricians will always make every effort to keep you as comfortable and safe as possible.
