Electrical rewiring involves the replacement of old, dangerous or non-compliant electrical equipment, eg; cables, fittings, distribution boards, etc.
This work can vary from a full rewire replacing all cables, fittings, distribution equipment, etc with the cables chased into the walls & completely hidden to a surface rewire where the cables are hidden in mini trunking fitted onto the surface of the walls.
A part rewire may be the replacement of a section of the installation or just the updating of the fuseboxes, fittings or cables to upgrade an installation to the current regulations.
Fuse Board Upgrades
We can provide a free quotation to replace existing rewireable fuseboards with Consumer Units containing Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCBs) & Residual Current Devices (RCDs). These consumer units have built-in 30mA protection for the use of electrical equipment outdoors & easily re-set circuit breakers giving safe & accurate protection of circuits.
Miniature Circuit Breakers
MCBs are mechanical switches that incorporate thermal & magnetic short circuit protection giving accurate & fast disconnection in the case of a fault.
Unlike fuse wires they can be reset without the need of tools.
Residual Current Devices -
RCDs are earth fault safety trips that monitor the whole installation or individual circuit for earth leakage currents.
In a healthy circuit, phase & neutral currents are balanced. If an earth fault occurs (e.g.: faulty kettle element) the fault current imbalances the phase & neutral current, which is then detected by the RCD & it quickly isolates the fault. RCDs protect against fire as fault currents remain low, they are also essential for use with outdoor equipment.
We can advise which type & sensitivity of RCD you require.
Bonding Main/Supplementary -
Main & supplementary equipotential bonding is required to limit any voltage between simultaneously accessible exposed conductive & extraneous conductive parts.
An exposed conductive part (Metal case of electric heater, kettle, toaster, etc)
An extraneous conductive part (Taps, shower fittings & metal pipes for gas & water) Supplementary Equipotential Bonding is required in bath & shower rooms where the risk of an electric shock is high due to moisture & low body resistance.
Bonding comprises of conductors being attached with suitable clamps to water & gas service pipes where they enter the building & to ensure all metallic equipment in rooms of high shock risk (eg bathrooms) is at the same potential.
BS7671/IEE Wiring Regulations are set out to ensure safe & reliable electrical installations.
