  • Aaron Webster

    Recently had Marc and the team complete a rewiring on my house as it was outdated, as well as adding in additional sockets and outdoor lighting. The work was completed to a high standard, on time and to the original agreed price. The team were friendly and helpful, keeping me up to date with where they were up to at different stages of the work. When they left, the house was left clean and tidy (which i have found is a rarity). I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.

    Electrical Rewiring Erith

    Are you looking for an electrical company near you to complete a rewire? Old wiring will not only not work well but can prove to be a safety issue. Our electricians can complete partial or complete rewires to bring your property up to date with current regulations and future-proof it.

    What are the signs you might need a rewire?

    Signs that it might be time to have a rewire include electrical systems that are over two decades old. If your circuit breakers are frequently tripping, you notice strange smells or scorch marks coming for outlets, you use a lot of extension leads or lights are flickering or dimming, it is a good idea to call an electrician to take a look.

    Old electrical systems can pose health and safety hazards. There will be an increased risk of electrical fires, electric shocks and overloading circuits.

    What does rewiring involve?

    Rewires involve replacing all parts of your electrical system, including all wiring, lighting, and outlets. The wiring will be routed, secured, and fitted to meet current safety standards. Rewiring can be quite a messy job, and many people will opt to have this done when they are not in their properties.

    Consumer unit upgrades in Dartford

    Do you need a new consumer unit or fuse board? All current consumer units have Residential Current Devices (RCDs) that will protect you from electric shocks.

    Our electricians will be able to assess your current consumer unit and provide an analysis to check for the safety of parts and wiring. Your consumer unit will be at the heart of your electrical installation because it controls the electricity coming into the property. Any new consumer unit installed by GCL Electrical Contractors will comply with current IET Wiring Regulations.

    What are the signs you need a new consumer unit?

    Some of the main signs that you may need a new consumer unit include an old or outdated design, which may still use fuses instead of circuit breakers or frequent tripping of circuit breakers, indicating an overloaded electrical system.

    Other signs include insufficient circuits, a lack of safety features and no provision for future expansion.
