Rewiring in a house is required after every few years. This need can arise because of various factors, like the existing wires do not meet the standard of wiring that you want for your house, or existing wires have now become old and redundant with time, or some electrical leakages are beginning to happen because the wire is worn out and many more reasons like the above.
Apart from these factors you also need to keep updated with the building and the safety standards that the local authorities have set up for your area. In most of the areas, there is a set rule for the wiring to be changed after 25 years. In case you are thinking of purchasing an old house it is quite possible that the standards are not met as per the UK Law. The reason being behind this strict law is that they would like to avoid any electrical or fire hazards caused by electrical instruments.

Rewiring of the house can be of two types, full and partial.

Kitchen electrical installation
A kitchen is probably the most sensitive area in the house. This is because kitchen is one place which has a lot of gadgets, has fire, and has water. Hence the Part P regulations have made it compulsory to have all the electrical installations in the kitchen done by qualified people who can provide you with a certificate about the electrical work in the kitchen are tested.
Our services include an array of work that our people can take care of. Our team will take care of installation of lighting, new sockets, extractor fans, cookers and their hoods and many more electrical items. For those who are getting their kitchen renovated or extended need not worry, we will take care of your electrical installations from scratch till the end, while keeping in mind that we meet all the safety standards.
Electrical Installations in Your Kitchen
While you begin to think of getting the electrical installations in your kitchen you need to keep in mind that there are three very important aspects of electrical installation that need to be taken care of; these are, the 13 ampere socket circuit that is used for the kitchen appliances, the 30 ampere supply for gadgets that take high load of electricity like electric cookers and the lighting circuits.
As we discussed kitchen appliances make a major part of our kitchen and goes without saying that they require electricity to run them. You need to put a lot of mind into where exactly you would like to place your electrical appliances as it is only then that the sockets will be fitted accordingly. There are two types of appliances that you are going to have in your kitchen, the ones that would need only the 13 ampere supply and then the few big ones that would need 30 ampere supply. Depending on that you can decide on the number of sockets and where you would like to place them. A word of caution, for those with children must take care that they have their sockets concealed properly or behind the cabinet doors, in short somewhere out of the reach of the children.
How extra sockets in kitchen area helps?
You will need additional sockets in the kitchen. Why we say so is that you never know when you might just add another gadget in your kitchen and then you’d be struggling using one plug point for 2 gadgets or more. Now this would only make your kitchen a messed up zone to work in. hence it is always advisable to have a few additional sockets up your sleeve for the newbies that you will be adding into your kitchen.
The concept of lighting in the kitchen has changed with the times. Now days a kitchen is a very interactive place where the family sits and has meals, or the kids do their homework while their mother cooks, or a place where one just sits with friends for a cup of coffee. Hence the lighting of the area has to be done thoughtfully. The area should never be under lit. It should be bright yet have a warm and a cosy feel to it.
