Heritage Electrics in Eastern Suburbs Sydney
Cotton wiring is commonly found in heritage, art deco and federation style buildings and properties built prior to 1930. The copper wiring—typically embedded within cotton or rayon with asbestos paper or rubber insulation—poses a significant safety hazard as the wiring system ages.
Over time the cotton becomes fragile and frays and may expose live wires
If you have recently purchased an older style home or commercial premises, it is important to hire a licensed electrician who is experienced in heritage electrics to inspect and minimise the risk of fire hazards.
If your home requires wiring replacement, we will provide you with a competitively-priced, fixed quote.
5 Signs It May Be Time To Replace Your House Wiring
1. Using Too Many Appliances Plunges your Home into Darkness
Heritage listed properties, federation and Art Deco house wiring were not created to cope with today’s modern appliances.
2. Lights that Flicker On and Off, or Appear Dimmer than Usual
Sometimes flickering or dimmer than usual lights may be caused by a faulty lightbulb or a loose connection. However, it’s always a sign to time to call your local Sydney electrician.
3. Old Fashioned Power Points and Light Switches
Old fashioned light switches and power points are usually a good indicator that your home was built prior to the 1980s.
4. Strange Buzzing Noises from Power Points
Buzzing or humming noise from your power plugs can be caused by a number of reasons ranging from a malfunctioning appliance, too many appliances at once or house wiring that’s not up to the demands of modern family life.
5. Switches that Give You a Slight Shock or Tingle When You turn Them On or Off
Electric shocks and tingles are a sure sign that something is wrong with your housing wire. This is classed as an emergency.
