It’s crucial that the wiring in your home is up-to-date and complies with Australian Standards to prevent the possibility of electrical hazards, fires or shock. It’s especially important to have the wiring looked at in older-style homes that may have had DIY done over the years, as it’s likely that this wiring is outdated, incorrectly installed and potentially dangerous.
Whether you’ve just bought a property with old or dodgy electrical wiring or you’re in the process of renovating, you’ll probably need your home rewired and/or your switchboard replaced. But rewiring a house is a task that can often get overlooked. Because electrical wiring is generally out of sight, it’s not usually considered a priority when moving into a house or renovating, unless an electrical problem is obvious.
