Electrical rewiring can easily set you back by SGD900 to SGD2,000 onwards, depending on the size of your property (eg. can be a 3-room HDB flat to a condominium unit). The exact project cost depends on the size of the apartment, the ease of access to the old wiring, and the number of electrical points (like lighting points, power points, air conditioner points, and water heater points).
Should You Rewire the House or Apartment?
We are in contact with electrical appliances every day and having a house with electrical hazards is definitely a concern to us. Should you rewire the resale house or apartment you just bought? It may be good to consult an electrician and get them to assess the need. As usual, many electricians would advise that you rewire for safety reasons and to free themselves of potential liability if there are electrical accidents. The general guide for rewiring if your house or apartment is more than 10 years old and you notice the following signs:
- Frequent tripping of main circuit or circuit breakers
- Many Blown fuses
- Burning smell from the electrical outlet
- Discolored electrical outlets and switches
The above is just a general guide and not comprehensive or exhaustive. It is always a decision between taking the risk and saving the money or being safe and spending the money. If you decide not to rewire, you have to live with the risk that comes with it.
