Usually, an electrical inspection (Electrical Installation Condition Report) for a house rewire in London, Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridge would have been carried out by a registered electrician, this may have highlighted some potential faults or items that do not meet current national standards and regulations meaning the existing installation and wiring is unsafe.
The report may recommend full rewiring or part-rewiring of the installation depending on the test results obtained by the engineer, there are a number of reasons that wiring may not be suitable or up to current standards.
Current mains cabling is mostly PVC. Old cabling might use paper or vulcanised rubber (VRI/VIR) as the insulating material. Lead and aluminium are also used in old wiring. Other problems include no circuit protective conductor (CPC) or earthing conductor within the installation. Testing may indicate many possible faults in existing wiring throughout an installation.

AC1 provide domestic and commercial rewiring services in London, Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridge, and nearby areas.
There are several ways to complete a house rewire in London, Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridge, depending on the circumstances of which the wiring is taking place, for example:
If you have just purchased a new property and will be living there for the foreseeable future, you would most likely want to have all cables hidden and inside walls, this would involve chasing a 25mm to 30mm channel inside the walls for the cables and back boxes to sit in, this would then require plastering, making good and decoration after, but would be a better finish.
- Trunking or Conduit
If you are renting a property and it requires rewiring, sometimes the best option is to use a surface-mounted mini trunking or conduit and surface back boxes to avoid damage or to cut cost, for example, if you have had laminate floors laid throughout you would not want to go to the expense of taking these up and replacing them. The ultimate purpose would be to ensure the installation is in a safe and operational condition for your tenants to use.
- Pull through
In a lot of council or ex-council properties like concrete flats and buildings alike, there originally would have been a small steel conduit laid inside walls and ceilings housing cables. Most of the time these can be re-used and there is no need for chasing or trunking we can simply pull new cables through the old conduit.
