Spot the signs:

  • Cables coated in black rubber - black rubber was phased out in the 1960's. Cables coated in lead or fabric are even older. Modern cables use PVC insulation.
  • A fusebox with a wooden back, cast iron switches, a haphazard mixture of circuit boxes
  • Older round pin sockets and round light switches, braided flex hanging from ceiling roses to light fittings, black switches, sockets mounted in skirting boards
  • Wall mounted light switches in bathrooms

If any of these features are present in your house, your wiring system is probably several decades old. Safety in your home is vital, and we strongly recommend that you contact us so we can carry out any electrical work.
