Signs a Building or House Needs Rewiring
Over time, the electrical system in a building can deteriorate, leading to various issues. Here are some common signs that indicate a property may need rewiring:
- Flickering Lights: This problem may occur when the electrical connections become loose or the wiring becomes outdated. Flickering lights can be an indication of overloaded circuits, damaged wiring, or inadequate power supply.
- Blown Fuses: If your fuses frequently trip or blow, it could mean that the electrical system is not capable of handling the load. This can be due to older wiring or when there are too many appliances or devices plugged into the same circuit.
- Circuit Breakers Tripping: Similar to blown fuses, circuit breakers tripping frequently can indicate an overloaded electrical system or faulty wiring. Circuit breakers are designed to protect against electrical faults, but if they trip frequently, it's a sign that something is wrong.
- Buzzing Outlets: These disturbing sounds coming from outlets can be a sign of loose or damaged wiring. When wires are loose, they can create poor connections that generate heat and cause buzzing noises. Ignoring this issue can lead to electrical shocks and even electrical fires.
- Dead Switches: If switches in your property become unresponsive or fail to turn on or off, the wiring may well be the culprit.

Common Mistakes in Wiring and Installation
It’s crucial to follow proper practices to ensure safety and functionality, as we do at Get Lit Electrical & Plumbing. Some regrettably common mistakes in our industry include:
- Faulty Connections: This can include loose or improperly secured wires, poorly crimped or twisted connections, or the use of inadequate connectors. Faulty connections can lead to power fluctuations and circuit failures and pose a fire hazard.
- Wire Exposure: Exposing electrical wires can be a serious safety hazard. Wires should always be properly insulated and protected within a conduit or cable sheathing. Exposed wires can lead to electrical shocks, short circuits, and potential fires.
- Improper Sizing: Undersized wires can overheat and potentially cause a fire. Oversized wires can be difficult to work with and may not fit properly. Incorrect wire length can also lead to excessive coiling or stretching, which can cause tension in the connections and affect performance.
Our licensed, experienced technicians have the knowledge, experience, and tools to carry out the work safely and effectively. By adhering to proper practices and avoiding these mistakes, we’ll work hard to deliver an electrical system that’s long-lasting, reliable, and safe.
