How do I know if my property needs rewiring?

We have inserted a visual diagram our customers to help indicate if your property needs a rewire. The following visual signs will also help indicate if your property needs rewiring:

  • Black rubber coated cables, lead or fabric coated cables. Modern cables are only ever coated in PVC.
  • Fuse box with cast iron switches, wooden back or a mixture of circuit boxes
  • Old round-pin sockets or round light switches
  • Braided flex hanging from ceiling to light fittings
  • Black switches or sockets mounted onto or in skirting boards
  • Bathroom wall mounted light switches

Why can’t my friend or relative do the electrical work?

Despite the concept of making an electrical circuit work being easy to figure out, the hard work is in making the circuit operate safely. This is work that can only be achieved by a trained professional at Aspire Electrical. By selecting our company, you can be certain to avoid the dangers that will arise from using an amateur electrician.

A friend carried out work on my property but I need a certificate for the work carried out. How do I get a certificate?

We can only provide certificates if the work has been carried out in relation to the regulations. Testing is not a simple option as it does not reveal whether the wiring has been laid properly. To give a certificate we will have to remove flooring, skirting and other like material to inspect the wiring.

Why do my electrics keep tripping?

In many modern households, there is a trip switch installed into most fuse boards which works to prevent fires and save lives. At Aspire, we understand that if the fuse boards constantly trips this can be a big nuisance. Our electricians will quickly identify any faults and correct them.

I have been in my home for over 20 years, why should the electrics be tested?
