How Long Does Your Home Wiring Last?
Electrical Wiring has a lifespan no matter how long it may be. If your home has a quality wiring (with copper wires), your wiring will last longer than that of an inferior quality like the aluminium wires from ages ago. Electrical wiring may last about 50-70 years depending on the quality of work that was carried out by the electricians.
Even though the wiring in your property may last this number of years, don’t rule out the fact that it can be shortened if the quality of work is poor. Book a professional oday for a complete or partial wiring by our certified electricians with years of experience.
