Rewiring a property is one of the largest maintenance jobs home owners face and sadly probably the most disruptive to the existing interior decoration. Good maintenance, upgrades and frequent inspections can stretch the need for home owners to undertake such a large rewiring job. It’s broadly considered that most properties should be rewired every 25 years, however as previously explained with good maintenance and regular inspections homeowners could expect up to 40 years hassle free.

Information Required

It is essential that the inspector is aware of the scope of the installation that needs to be inspected and any criteria concerning the limit of the inspection. This should be recorded.

Inquiries have to be made to the person responsible for the electrical installation with regard to the provision of diagrams, design criteria, electrical power supply and earthing preparations.

Diagrams, charts or tables need to be accessible to reveal the type and composition of circuits, identification of protective units for shock protection, isolation and switching and a description of the system used for fault safeguard.
