    I contacted GCL Electrical requesting assistance with an electrical issue that I had, they sent an electrical engineer out promptly to solve my lighting problem. Absolutely saved the day!

    Recently had Marc and the team complete a rewiring on my house as it was outdated, as well as adding in additional sockets and outdoor lighting.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.

    Expert rewires in Plumstead

    Count on our NAPIT accreditation for reliability, as we adhere to best practices and meet the current Wiring Regulations BS 7671 in all our work. If your residence predates the 1970s, chances are its electrical wiring may be outdated and not compliant with contemporary safety standards.

    Ageing wiring poses an increased risk of fire hazards and may struggle to meet the power requirements of modern appliances and electronic devices. We can complete all partial and complete rewires.

    What are other reasons you might need a rewire?

    Enhancing your home with new electrical features like a kitchen or bathroom? Consider rewiring to handle the added load. If you are facing electrical issues like flickering lights or blown fuses, then rewiring could be the solution. Or, if you are selling your home, a recent rewire can enhance its appeal to potential buyers.

    What are the benefits of rewiring?

    Rewires will improve the safety of your property and will minimise the risk of electrical fires and hazards. You will also enhance efficiency with newer wiring, cutting down on energy costs for a more economical home. Enjoy added flexibility by rewiring, providing more options for placing electrical outlets and fixtures. Updated electrical wiring is an attractive feature for buyers, potentially increasing the value of your property.

    Willing consumer unit upgrades or replacements

    If your consumer unit is over 20 years old, it is important it is inspected to see if it needs to be replaced because older units may not meet current safety standards and are more susceptible to faults. If you have a damaged or worn-out unit exhibiting signs like rust, corrosion, or loose connections, it will also need to be upgraded.

    Compliance with current regulations may necessitate upgrading your consumer unit when making alterations to your electrical installation.

    What are RCDs in modern consumer units?

    An RCD, short for residual current device, functions as a safety mechanism that identifies and interrupts power to a circuit upon detecting a slight imbalance in the current. This imbalance may result from human contact with a live wire or a fault in an electrical appliance.
