Electrical home rewiring
If you aren’t sure about the electrical state of your home or have any doubts, the first thing you should probably do is hire an electrical inspector. This person will test the electricity and let you know for sure if you need to rewire.
But there are some clear things that can help you make a choice, like:
If you have an old, rusty consumer unit or fuse box with only a few wires that don’t separate the ground floor from the first floor, for example, you may need to replace it. That is, all the lights in the building are controlled by one switch. As well as the lack of RCDs, there are also no protective fuses that turn off the power if live lines are touched.
Aluminium wires or cables that are the wrong colour could mean that the house hasn’t been rewired since at least 2006. That’s when the neutral cable went from black to blue and the live cable went from red to brown. The fact that a wire is made of aluminium should be written on it every 12 inches, so it’s easy to find. Aluminium wires just don’t conduct electricity as well and break a lot more easily.
If you get electric shocks from metal parts in your house, like metal light switches, lights, an extractor hood or even a washbasin or bathroom, it could mean that the property’s circuits are not connected to the earth or are broken in some way, making some parts of your property live.
You may have heard the term “re-wiring” at some point, but do you know what it means? A full repair of a home is a pretty big job that involves putting cables and wires all over the house and connecting them to sockets and fittings.
The great thing about switching a house is that you can make a detailed plan of where you need plugs, switches, and light fixtures to make your life as easy as possible and to make sure your home is ready for modern living in the future.
You can even think about adding smart home features like automated lighting, speaker systems that connect to smart devices, or smart blinds as part of the rewire.
It’s a lot of work because the cables need to be laid under floorboards, inside walls, and across ceilings. Ideally, this should be done when the house is empty because the electrician will need to be able to access the floorboards and will be “chasing” into the walls. This means that you may need to hire extra contractors like plasterers and decorators if you don’t want to do this yourself.
Rewiring is done in two parts. The first part, called the “first fix,” is when new cables and lines are put in place all over the house. Part two, called “second fix,” is when the power is turned on and the plugs, switches, and lights are put in place. Between the first fix and the second fix, there is a lot of work done that has nothing to do with electricity, such as putting back rugs, filling holes, and maybe even painting.
Usually, rewiring a whole house takes 7–10 working days and is not easy. There are a few steps, such as:
In the first step, called “preparation,” the ceiling or floor is opened up, based on where the wires will go. Carpets or floors are always covered to keep them safe, and all of the walls are taken down and a plan for the wiring is made.
When all of the old wires and plugs are taken out. There is new chasing, new holes are drilled, and new wires are put in.
Then, after the walls are plastered, the ceiling and floors are fixed, and the kitchen tops are built, the cables that are sticking out are linked to switches, sockets, lights, appliances, and finally to the consumer unit.
Lastly, once everything is connected, an inspection is done to check and certify the state of the electricity.
At Madsan UK, we know a lot about rewiring houses, so we will work with you to find out what your family needs. We’ll always tell you exactly what we’re doing and treat your house with the utmost respect.
No, not always. The electrics might work fine, and there is no rule that says a house built in the 1970s has to be rewired. But it’s always a good idea to do an Electrical Installation Condition Report before coming to any decisions.
This report will show if there are any problems with the wires, which would need to be fixed right away. The report’s findings will also show what can be done to make customers safer. There are, however, a few things you can look for that might tell you it’s time to rewire your home even before an electrician checks it.
One of them is if your fuse box is old and grey. It can work fine, but it doesn’t have one of the extra safety features that are built into every current consumer unit. This means that if someone touched a live wire or a surface that wasn’t earthed, the power would be cut off automatically. This could save his or her life.
If fuses keep blowing or the power goes out, that could also be a sign that something is wrong with the wires. In these situations, an electrical check must be done because old cables may overheat from being used too much, which is dangerous and could lead to a fire.
Burning smells, noise, or sparks that don’t go away are also a sign. Old cables might catch fire in the roof or loft, where you can’t see them, but you’ll smell them. You shouldn’t ignore these smells. Old wires can spark or buzz, but they can also come loose at the connections or even break, which can cause big sparks that can set fire to the insulation or walls around the house.
Because of the potential for disruption during the rewiring of your home, there are a few things you should think about before calling an electrician.
Because the new wiring must be installed in the walls, ceilings, and floors, you’ll need to move your furniture out of the rooms and up off the floor.
If you want your electrician to be able to work on the ceilings in the attic, you may need to clear some room up there. If you don’t have an electrical plan, you’ll need to get one from us or from SW Electricians.
Madsan Uk will not keep you waiting for your rewire by not explaining the work that has to be done and what we need you to do before we arrive to perform the service.
It’s not always about the size of your house; this will greatly rely on the size of your property and the difficulty of the work necessary. For instance, if you need a lot of outlets or light switches, the time it takes to rewire your home may go up.
Running the wiring and cabling might occasionally be more difficult than usual, especially in apartment buildings where access to the ceilings may be limited.
A three-bedroom semi-detached house typically takes 7 to 10 working days, but please contact us for a personalised price.
The cost of rewiring a house varies according to the size and number of electrical points in the home.Rewiring costs typically start at around £2000 for a one-bedroom home and can go from £8000 to £100000 for a five-bedroom home.
Several elements, including the following, will affect the price:
The size of the home is the primary determining element because rewiring an apartment would obviously be less expensive than a 2 or 3 bedroom house.
The number of electrical outlets in each room would also be important. The more electrical points there are, the more difficult and time-consuming it is to wire them. Considering that connecting all the points takes more time.
The property’s walls’ construction is another aspect. Concrete walls would need to be pursued, which would take a lot of time and be more expensive than plasterboard walls, which are simple to cut and take down.
In conclusion, the price of rewiring a home varies greatly depending on a number of variables. These will include the number of rooms you have, the number of sockets needed, the number of light fixtures necessary, as well as a variety of other factors, such as the quantity of cabling required to run electricity throughout your home.

Switches and sockets installation
Damaged or broken plug sockets in your home can pose safety hazards and should be promptly addressed. Common issues include wear and tear from everyday use, cracks, blockages, or loose fittings. It is important to replace damaged sockets to ensure the safety of you and your family.
If you notice a burning smell or see black marks around the sockets, it is crucial to contact an electrician immediately, as these signs may indicate a more serious electrical problem.
In most cases, socket repair is not possible as the internal components do not have replaceable parts. Therefore, socket replacement is usually required. However, some situations, such as loose or tight sockets or blockages, may be repaired by removing the blockage or adjusting the fitting.
When plug sockets stop working entirely, the issue may lie in the wiring behind the socket rather than the socket itself. This could indicate a dislodged wire or a larger underlying issue.
Our expert electricians in London are trained to identify socket issues and provide efficient solutions. We prioritize cost-effectiveness and speedy repairs, ensuring the safety and functionality of your electrical system.
Your home can become safer and more functional by installing additional outlets. Modern houses are more technologically advanced than ever since we all own more gadgets, including TVs, game consoles, laptops, digital TV boxes, and other devices. It can be unsafe to use extension plugs to deliver power to these gadgets since they can overload your system. They are also ugly because they leave a mess of wires behind or next to your TV console.
Adding more sockets will offer your house the functionality you desire, and if necessary, they may be chased directly into a wall, leaving a tidy appearance. By including sockets with USB ports built in, you can even lessen the need for more outlets by eliminating the need to plug in chargers for things like phones, Kindles, and other gadgets.
It can also be necessary to add more outlets for your kitchen. You might discover that you frequently need to disconnect items like your toaster or kettle to create room for electric mixing bowls or even your microwave because many older homes were built when we used fewer kitchen gadgets than we do today.
Installing new electrical sockets in your home is a straightforward process for an electrician, and our knowledgeable, amiable electricians will collaborate with you to complete the task with the least amount of bother and inconvenience.

At some point, most of us will need to move a plug socket or light switch. This could be because you want to move your furniture around or because you are adding on or doing other building work that makes the current location of your switches and plugs not work with your new plan.
Madsan Uk can help you move a plug or switch in your home if you need to. Our fully trained electricians will move one or more plugs and switches quickly and safely, always being careful not to damage your home.
Most of us have a number of gadgets that need to be charged through a USB port.
From phones to Kindles, as well as speakers and Fitbits. When we want to charge these gadgets, we use a plug socket that could be used for something else.
So, more and more people are adding plugs that include a SUB charger socket.
Madsan Uk can help you put these new plug sockets in, which will make charging a breeze.
If you own a garden, you’ve certainly thought about installing lighting and outlets to help you make the most of your outside environment. To enjoy outdoor entertaining, you can want to install outdoor Christmas lights or enjoy summertime garden illumination.Madsan Uk are experts in supplying safe, dependable outside electrics that are made to resist whatever our London weather chooses to throw at us, so whatever your outside lighting and socket needs may be.
Garages are increasingly being used for purposes other than car parking. In reality, a lot of us use our garage or shed to give us a place to work on projects or engage in hobbies away from the house.
In these situations, you might want to add more outlets to your garage, shed, or summer home so that you can always have a power source available to utilise items like computers, tools, or other gadgets.
Regardless of your needs, Madsan Uk can assist you in obtaining a fully operational power supply for the area so that you may take advantage of your extra space.
More and more home owners are considering installing smart lighting in their buildings. Smart lighting comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, and it may sometimes even be voice-activated using a Google Home or Amazon Alexa device or a tablet, phone, or other device.
Although many smart light switches can be installed by the homeowner themselves, it may be a better idea for your safety and peace of mind to have a certified electrician install the smart light switch for you. A dimmer switch can be a good substitute when the task is more complicated because not all smart switches are compatible with older circuit types. This lets you adjust the lighting in a room and set the mood.
Rewiring some areas of your home may be worthwhile if you do have an older circuit type and want to use more home automation.
Experts in smart home electrical systems, Madsan Uk will work with you to automate your home so you can sit back, relax, and take advantage of your new smart lighting.

Voltage Testing: We use voltage testers or multimeters to check for the presence of voltage in different parts of the circuit. This helps us identify live wires, improper connections, or abnormal voltage levels.
Earth Continuity Testing: In installations with earthing systems, we test the continuity of the earth connections. This ensures that the earthing system is functioning correctly, providing protection against electrical shocks.
Load Testing: If necessary, we perform load testing by connecting known loads to the circuit and measuring voltage drops or current flows. This helps us identify issues like voltage regulation problems or excessive resistance.
Record and Document Findings: Throughout the inspection, we document our observations, measurements, and any identified faults. This documentation serves as a reference for future repairs, replacements, or further investigation.
Remedial Actions: If we discover faulty wiring, we take appropriate actions to rectify the issues. This may involve repairing or replacing damaged wires, tightening loose connections, or rewiring specific sections of the electrical system.
In summary, as electricians, we conduct thorough inspections, perform tests, and utilize our expertise to identify and address faulty wiring to ensure the safety and functionality of electrical systems.
