I have an old home, do I need rewiring?
If are living in a property built more than 20 years old ago, and the electrical circuits still has its original wires, you may need rewiring. As wiring ages, the insulation around the core breaks down, exposing the inner wires. When this happens, you run the risk of a short-circuit and overheating, which are the leading causes of electrocution and electrical fires. So, if you have deteriorated wiring on your property, it’s best to invest in professional rewiring sooner than later. If you are not sure whether rewiring is necessary on your property, here are a few signs you can look out for:
- Recurring tripping of circuit breakers for seemingly no reason
- Persistent burnt plastic and rubber smell around outlets and switches
- Blackened or charred plastic around outlets and switches
If you notice any of the above occurring on your property, you should consider getting it rewired. A lot of homeowners are reluctant to get a full-property rewiring done because they are worried about the cost, which is understandable. After all, rewiring is a major task that costs over a thousand dollars. Fortunately, rewiring is a one-time expense that is more than just an investment in the safety of your family and yourself, it also has other major long-term benefits.
First, it increases the appeal of your home to potential homebuyers and renters down the road, and also increases its value. When it comes time to sell or rent-out your property, there is nothing more important that the condition of the home and its wiring. If your home has up-to-date wiring, sufficient electrical outlets, and well maintained distribution board, its value and appeal increases significantly. This is because when people are looking for a new place to live, they want a comfortable place with modern conveniences that will not give them headaches.
Second, it adds convenience to individuals currently living in the property. When you rewire your home, you get the opportunity to add new electrical circuits and power points to your home. According to a recent study by The Straits Times, the average Singapore consumer now owns more than three electronic devices each, and spends more than half of their day interacting with them. If your home was built a few decades ago, it likely does not have enough electrical outlets to keep all of these devices charged up and home appliances running without restarting to extension cords.

Rewiring is more than just a service for restoring aging wiring, it can also create greater convenience and accessibility in a home.
