Old wiring - How old is too old? - 18th Jun 2013

Old wiring - How old is too old? Up until the late 1960's, Dunedin homes were wired in rubber impregnated cloth and insulated cables. The wiring was run inside conduit, wood casing or rubber sheathed. As the wiring ages the insulation deteriorates becoming brittle and can leave live conductors exposed and dangerous. The electrical system may still operate perfectly but this risk of an electrical fault or fire increases as time goes by.

A periodic inspection of pre 1970's wiring is recommended.
