Honestly can't fault the guys at AK Electrical. It's no wonder that their reviews are so good. We had a full house rewire done recently. From start to finish Abdullah and the team were very communicative, explained everything really clearly (which is not the case for all tradespeople). They were also to recommend some great people for other work that we needed doing. Importantly, they were also very friendly to have around. Overall, we were really impressed. If you are looking for a great electrician, make sure to go with AK Electrical.

Had an emergency call out which the guys came to the rescue turning up within the hour and had the power restored within an hour. Also had a new consumer unit fitted with the necessary fuses, wiring and safety checks. All the guys are really friendly and tidy explaining everything they were doing in easy to understand terms. No job was too much helped fit a new freezer socket. Will definitely use again and recommend to anyone

House Rewire

Are your planning on Rewiring your house? there are many factors to consider such as cost, how long it will take and how will the work affect your day-to-day life whilst the rewire is ongoing. To give you an insight to what is involved, AK Electrical Services have put together a guide to help answer some questions that you may have before you agree to allow someone to rewire your house or flat.

How much does it cost to Rewire a House In Manchester ?

The cost of a house rewire in Manchester depends on a number of things, such as: whether the house is occupied or vacant, the overall size of the property,  how many bedrooms does the property have, the age of the property, where you live in the country and who you hire “Cowboys or a Professional”. Here at AK Electrical Services we have come across many customers who have chosen the cheapest quote and end up paying double the amount. Because the work was not according to current regulations.

On average the cost for a house rewire in Manchester for a  3 bed semi detached house starts from £6,500+VAT and can take up to 4 to 7 days to complete.

What does a house Rewire in Manchester involve?

Your Properties electrical cables run under the flooring and in the walls, so rewiring your home will require flooring to be lifted and walls drilled into, and chased. This it a considerably messy and disruptive job.

During a full rewire of your home, AK Electrical Services will:

  • Install new cabling.
  • New 18th edition Consumer unit.
  • Install several new socket circuits and lighting circuits.
  • Fit new back boxes and sockets and switches.
  • Remove all old cabling where possible.
  • Testing and Inspection of New cabling and equipment.
  • Once completed an Electrical Installation Certificate will be issued and the relevant council notified of the work.
  • Before the rewire starts you can discuss with your electrician, where you would like your sockets and lights to be installed.

Rewire Stages

First stage – cabling, wiring, circuits and back boxes are all replaced.

Second stage – light fittings, face plates, sockets, switches are installed. All wiring is connected to the consumer unit to make everything live.

When and How often should a House be Rewired?

There is no time frame for rewiring a home, but if your Properties wiring is over 25 years old it may need a partial rewire, or a full rewire, to bring it up to current safety standards.

Electrical inspections should be carried out every 5 years if you are a landlord, and every 10 years if you own your house. This is to make sure that everything is still safe and in full working order.

If the electrical system becomes outdated, there are a couple of things to look out for that may require you to get your home rewired:

When electrics become unsafe – if at any time your electrics become unsafe or stop meeting current regulations, you should get them fixed as soon as possible to avoid fire or injury.

If you make significant alterations or additions to your wiring – all new wiring will need to conform to Part P of the Building Regulations and existing wiring will need to be improved to make sure it can cope with the additional load of the new wiring being added.

If your electrics have any of the following issues or signs of being outdated, then you should ASAP seek help and advice from one of our Electricians at AK Electrical Services.

  • Fuses keep blowing.
  • Buzzing or crackling noises.
  • Discolouration around sockets or plugs.
  • Burning smell.
  • Old fashioned fuse box (consumer unit) with a wooden back and white ceramic fuses.
  • Constantly flickering lights.
  • Wiring has rubber, fabric or lead cabling insulation (new modern wiring should be PVCu coated)
