Does your home need rewiring? Truly local, electricians you can trust.

Your local house rewiring specialists.

How do you know if your home needs rewiring?

With electrical wiring hidden away in the roof, walls, or under the floor where you can’t easily see it, it can be hard to know the state of your home’s electrical wiring; whether it has been recently updated and is safe or if it’s not up to Australian standards, posing a hazard to your family. Poor wiring can also cause damage to expensive electrical appliances over time. 

Homes with cotton or rubber insulated wiring should be rewired. Cotton and rubber insulated cabling ceased being used in homes and commercial properties in the 1970’s as the insulation a much shorter life span than the plastic insulated cabling we use today.  As wiring deteriorates, it begins to pose a fire risk and the risk of electrocution.  

We recommend you have your wiring assessed by one of our qualified electricians, particularly if you answer yes to any of the following;  

  • Your home is fitted with single insulated wiring & steel conduits  
  • The safety switch trips frequently  
  • Your house was built in the 1970’s or earlier  
  • There is only one circuit for all your power outlets  
  • Your home is fitted with rubber or cotton insulation  
  • Socket outlets are over heating  
  • You are renovating and can see the wiring is deteriorating/ non-regulation.  

 

 

What does rewiring involve and what is the cost? 

If you have your home rewired, we will renew powerpoints and switches if required and replace ALL of the old wiring. When we inspect the condition of the wiring in homes, we regularly come across instances of ‘lazy work’, whereby at some point in the past, an electrician has ignored or neglected to replace deteriorated wiring in spots that are not easily accessible. We take pride in the fact that our rewiring work is thorough and complete so no dangerous wiring is left behind. We want our customers to feel the peace of mind in knowing heir home’s electrical systems are safe and meet Australian standards. 

This is often done in conjunction with a switchboard upgrade where we replace old fuses or circuit breakers for individual safety switches. The switchboard backing on these installations were usually asbestos which we remove safely if the switchboard is being upgraded. Typically the earthing would also require upgrading at this point. 

Each home is different, our electricians will come to your home to assess your wiring and will provide a free, personalised and obligation-free quote for the components that need fixing. 

Receive prompt and reliable service from fully qualified, professional electricians. We respect your time, your home and your budget.

We promise a smooth, fast and stress-free experience. And all our work is covered by our 100% lifetime guarantee so you have absolute peace of mind. It’s no wonder over 80% of our work is from repeat customers.

Hornsby Electric fixed our bathroom light switch which had got stuck in the off position. They also were... able to give us some quotes for additional power points which we would like installed. They were honest and transparent about how the power points might need to be installed with ducting due to living in a unit block. They were extremely friendly and easy going. They got back to us quickly (the same day) with an itemized quote that they emailed to us for future works we would like done. Their communication is great with confirming appointments via text and calling half an hour ahead of their arrival. They also arrived within the timeframe bookedOverall, they are a very professional business that we will use again.read more

We found David via Google when looking for an emergency level 2 electrician around Berowra 2082. We had... a tree branch fall on a private power pole and the cable needed replacing immediately.David was the friendliest and most helpful source over the phone and he came out the next morning, helped us analyse the situation for future reference, changed the cable and cut down the neighbour's overhanging trees in order to keep things tidy and safe. We will be hiring him again whenever we need a local, friendly and super reliable electrician.read more
