It can be hard to determine the cost to rewire a house. You see, this will depend on the project and the budget of the homeowner. There are certain factors that affect the cost like the house size, access to the wires, layout, and the fittings. If it is smaller electrical job, then you will also have to pay less; but if you’re going to rewire the whole house, this can be a big project. The very first thing that you have to consider if the connection fee but this is only applicable for new houses; the fee will depend on the area where you live but it can usually cost from $1000 to $40,000 since this will already cover installations.
Another factor is the ‘fuse boxes’ or the consumer units. The very old ones should be replaced because old wirings can cause accidents and fires. The cost of the units will range from $80 to $300 and this will depend on the number of ways, MCBs, RCDs, loading, and others. The lighting and sockets will also affect the overall rewiring costs. For every socket, you may need to pay $60 to $80 and will usually depend on the finish. If you purchase the switches and pendants, you will need to spend $2 or higher; fancier designs will surely cost you more.
