It can be tempting to try and save some money and attempt to rewire your home yourself. However, it is crucial that you avoid doing this as it could be at the expense of your safety.
Rewiring is not a job that can be undertaken by anyone and requires experience, knowledge and training in order to be able to complete the work properly.
If you do the work yourself and are not fully trained, this could lead to the wiring not being correctly installed. Not only does this pose a significant safety risk to you and your home but it might also mean that problems need to be rectified in the future.
Furthermore, if the work is insufficiently executed, this could mean that it does not comply with building regulations. This may mean that your insurance policy is no longer valid.
There may be instances where you can complete the work yourself, but you must be registered with a Competent Person’s scheme with your local authority. But even so, you would still be required to pay an inspection fee once the work is completed.
For this reason, we would always suggest hiring a professional electrician to complete the work. This will give you the peace of mind that everything will be done to the very best standards. What’s more, you can put your feet up and relax without having to do any of the hard work.
