Cost to Rewire a House

The number one question that we are asked is..

“how much does it cost to rewire a house?”

We understand that this is a concern for every homeowner, as it seems like quite an overwhelming and costly experience at first glance.

Each project will have a different cost based on the size of the house and the amount of rewiring that needs to be done. This is why the best way to determine house rewiring costs is to obtain a quote.

One of our electricians can visit your property to take a closer look at the work involved and will then provide an accurate, itemised quote based on this.

Some of the costs you can expect to pay are dependent on following factors:

  • Switchboard condition
  • Amount of rewiring required.
  • Consumer mains condition
  • Meter panel condition

Are there any other factors that could affect the cost?

How easily the wiring can be accessed can also play a role in how much you will be charged. In some cases, wiring can be difficult to access and the electrician may have to run wiring through difficult areas. The harder it is for them to get the job done, the more expensive it will be.

The types of outlets that your home already has and that you want to be added can also affect the overall cost of the project. From power points, telephone and other data outlets, there is a range of outlets to choose from. What is currently available in your home may not meet your requirements and need to be changed.

Are there any new fixtures that you also hope to add as a part of the project? These could include dimmer switches on your lights or hardwired smoke alarms in strategic locations. The addition of these types of fixtures will also increase the quote that you ultimately obtain for the works.
