Our London electricians can identify old wiring, evaluate your wiring to see if it needs rewiring, fix broken electrical cables and replace your home’s wiring system. There are some signs to watch out for faulty electrical wiring, these include frayed wiring, overheating wall outlets, flickering or buzzing lights, outlet or switches that give you electrical shocks, buzzing switches or outlets and a circuit breaker that trips whenever the system becomes overloaded.
If the property in question has not been rewired within the last 25-30 years it could mean that it will require rewiring in order to meet the current electrical standards.
