The first thing Hit The Switch will do before rewiring a house is conduct a full electrical assessment.
This is crucial because on the surface, things can appear perfectly OK and it’s only when you delve deeper that you can notice problems.
For example, you might have a brand new switchboard, but upon closer inspection, we might discover that that the existing wiring is not up to scratch…visibly worn or cracked cabling, perished black rubber cables, or – worst of all – metal conduit with cloth cabling.
We’ll also look out for cracked and broken General Purpose Outlets (power points), damaged light fittings and electrical issues in outdoor areas.
When we get up into the ceiling and other inaccessible places, that’s when it becomes perfectly clear whether or not you need your house rewired.
