Rewiring a house – even parts of it – is a big job. Not only do you need a well-thought out electrical plan that meets the codes and standards of your area, but you also need to understand the way that circuits work, how grounding works, how electrical panels work, and have an awareness of potential issues with aging wiring and connections.
Electrical rewiring requires that you first determine the gap between a home’s current electrical supply and what is realistically needed for now and the foreseeable future. Consider big screen TVs, modern appliances and other devices and their needs, such as more data writing, Wi-Fi, built-in sound and theatre systems.
Next, an electrician use their knowledge of the local codes and regulations to identify any upgrades or changes that may require a permit.
Electrical rewiring then requires the actual manual labour of rewiring (accessing old wires, disposing of them, and running new wire) then the drywall repair and repainting required after going into walls, or through ceilings or floors.
