If you live in a house that was built in the 1960s or before, you would be no stranger to tripping circuit breakers, flickering lights or blown fuses every now and then.

This is because the property you live in has its wiring is done decades ago, which over the years has decayed or rendered itself faulty after taking the load of the modern appliances we use today.

As licensed Ballarat electricians, here are some of the reasons why your property needs to be rewired.

Faulty Electrical Wiring Can Cause House Fires

Each year thousands of homes in Australia become a victim of house fires that are easily preventable if their electrical wiring is up to date.

If you live in an old house, getting your electrical wiring checked is worth every cent as it can prevent serious electrical shocks or house fires that can cause property damage and can be even life-threatening.

Missing Circuits and Safety Switches

A major drawback of old wiring is that it is not designed to cater to the load modern appliances put on it. With the extra load on the wires, they can burn out or melt causing a major threat to your property.

When you get your home’s wiring inspected or updated, your Ballarat electrician will make sure to add separate circuits for major appliances of your home such as hot water system, electric oven or security system, protecting them from tripping due to circuit overload.

Not only this, but your Ballarat electrician will also add safety switches to all circuits so your family is safe from electrical shocks.

Inconveniently Located Outlets

With most old houses, the outlets are spaced far away and are usually not enough for your needs.

In order for you to create a customised modern living space, you need more power points installed on the most convenient places around the house, including kitchen, bedroom, living room, closets, bathroom and garage.

This will require your Ballarat electrician to rewire the house to give you the convenience of plugging in appliances where ever you want.

Resale Value

Adding more safety, functionality and convenience to your home is sure to increase your house’s resale value. If you are upgrading your property, it’s the best time to talk to your local Ballarat electrician to update your house’s wiring, as it will be an investment that will pay off when it’s time to sell the property.

Wrapping Up

If you notice that your appliances are frequently tripping, you have flickering lights, your power points make a buzzing sound or have a burning smell, it means that you have faulty wiring around the home that needs to be upgraded.

As licensed Ballarat electricians we can help you upgrade your home’s wiring.
