  • Warm and cool lighting
  • Practical and decorative lighting
  • Garden lighting
  • Security lighting

  • Load requirements for specific appliances
  • Exterior power supplies
  • Pools/spas
  • Outbuildings such as sheds, workshops, sleepouts, office cabins

  • Modem location and WIFI extenders
  • Wired IOT appliances
  • Access to WIFI in outbuildings.

Does your house need rewiring?

There are a number of things to look out for in older house wiring.

  • Black rubber cabling (Vulcanised Indian Rubber), which was common during the 1950s and 1960s.
  • Very old power cables may have a material sheath.
  • Damage from rodents.
  • Heat damage can cause the cable sheath to become hard and brittle, exposing wires. This is especially common in old light fittings and overloaded circuits.
  • Fuses blowing or circuit breakers regularly tripping may indicate an overload or fault condition.
  • Flooding or other extensive water damage at least requires and electrical check and can necessitate some degree of rewiring.

Renovations are a good opportunity to look at house rewiring. Sometimes access can be difficult and renovations allow easier replacement or installation of cables, saving time and money.
