What factors affect the cost of a whole-home rewiring?

  • The size of the home: One of the most important factors in determining the cost of a whole-home rewiring is home size. Larger homes will have more wiring, which adds to the time on site and the materials required to complete the job. In addition, larger homes require additional access holes to reach the wiring, so drywall repairs need to be factored into the equation as well.
  • The need for a new panel: One of the first things a Golden Rule electrician will look at during a free estimate is a home's electrical panel. If the amperage is low or a legacy fuse box is installed, we'll suggest a replacement. This is to make sure our customers get the most out of their new wires. Older panels can bottleneck amperage coming into your home and thus eliminate most of the benefits of rewiring in the first place.
  • Contractor experience: When hiring a company or individual contractor to rewire your home, it's best to think in terms of value provided rather than installation cost. Golden Rule delivers exceptional value with better customer protections, faster service and more experienced technicians. This is especially important for electrical work, since the smallest mistake can lead to a serious fire hazard.
