House Rewiring

If you have an older home in Melbourne, rewiring by certified electricians from S-elect is something you should seriously consider. Rewiring a Melbourne home may not be the prettiest part of your stunning renovation, but it is essential for the ongoing safety and compliance of older houses. 

Why rewire an old house?

Old wiring may not only be unsafe due to ageing, wear and tear, but it was also not designed to withstand the load that our increasingly tech-driven lives now place upon it.
