As a part of our extensive range of electrical services, Merlx Electrical Services supply complete electrical rewiring in Sheffield to ensure that your present electrical system adheres to all contractual and legal requirements and responsibilities. It’s vital to make sure that your current electrical installation is fitted and working properly, as badly wired properties are dangerous and may pose potential fire hazards.

Why do I need to Rewire?

The chances are much of the current wiring will need an upgrade to comply with present safety standards if your property hasn’t been rewired in the past 15 years. There’s a strong likelihood of needing a replacement consumer unit (fuse box) as well as substantial, if not full, rewiring if you’re planning on major refurbishments that amount to a material alteration, as defined in Part 2 of The Building Regulations 2010. Conversions and extensions must satisfy the Part P: Electrical Safety guidelines completely as they are classed as ‘new work’. In addition, all existing wiring has to be brought up to standard to ensure that the additional load produced by the new work can be handled safely and also that cross bonding and earthing requirements are met. At Merlx Electrical Services, we can usually determine whether a property has recently been rewired by inspecting the consumer unit, electricity meter and also any exposed areas. Should you be looking at buying property, it’s often a good plan to have these inspections made in order to prevent unexpected surprises. A property with an obsolete consumer unit, for example, or with a mixture of sockets and switches or surface-mounted wiring, may possibly require a complete rewiring.

You may need a rewire in the following circumstances:

New works Refurbishments constituting a material alteration
An outdated fuse box/consumer unit A mixture of styles of switches and sockets
Surface-mounted wiring
Non-PVCu-insulated wiring (particularly rubber, fabric or lead-insulated wiring) Old-style round pin sockets and dolly switches

The Cost of a Rewire
The cost of a rewiring project will change according to the level of restorative decoration work needed and the size of the property For this reason, it will pay to obtain the advice of an electrician as early in refurbishment works as possible.

Chris was easy to contact and messaged back quickly to arrange a convenient time. He arrived on time and was friendly/professional and efficient at fitting a replacement light in my living room. I would happily hire again.

I needed some second fix works carrying out including sockets for appliances and a couple of light fittings installed including 4 spotlights. Chris was unable to install the sockets because the wall was lined with plywood (I did not make Chris aware of this) Chris did however successfully install the socket for the fire and fit the two light fittings in the dining room and landing. The spotlights in the kitchen were fitted but it doesn’t appear a hole saw was used on the newly plastered ceiling and there has been a LOT of making good to do (plaster repairs) around the fittings which isn’t ideal.

Nyall

If you have need of an electrician, look no further. Arrived within the hour, professional, courteous and was able to complete other jobs as requested. Cannot recommend him enough, top of his profession and wouldn’t hesitate to employ in the future.
Jonathan

He was punctual, polite and tidied up when he had finished, he even made a fuss of our little dog! We were having our cooker connected, having just moved in. I thought the price was a bit steep at £45, considering he was only here for ten, fifteen minutes, but appreciate that it is quite probably the going rate for the job, and we needed it doing ASAP. We would definitely ask him again if we need anything else doing, but I would get a couple of other quotes as well.
