Signs you need an electrical rewire!

It is critical to have your home's electrical wiring replaced, yet few people are aware of this or know when to get their electrical wiring repaired. Here at Hampshire Technical, we've gone through a few factors that will assist you in determining whether your home requires rewiring.

Lights that are dimming or flickering 

When the lights begin to dim or flicker, it usually indicates that there is insufficient power or that there is too much. It may not necessitate a rewire, but it is always a good idea to have it checked by a skilled electrician. 

Are fuse-blowouts becoming commonplace? 

If you own an older home, you are likely to have an old fuse. The main downside of these fuses is that they cannot support modern appliances, causing them to trip out on a regular basis. If you are experiencing this in your home, please notify us as soon as possible using the information provided below.

Charring signs 

If you look at your outlet and notice charring or discolouration, you should call an electrician as soon as possible. The charring and discolouration could be the result of an unstable connection creating a spark near the surface. If not addressed by an expert, this might lead to electrical fires. 

A burning odour 

If you smell burning somewhere in your home, it indicates that something isn't working properly. You should have this checked out as soon as possible before it does further harm to your home or causes a fire!
