You are currently viewing What is the average cost to update your home’s electrical wiring?

“Home Guide, one of the online standards for pricing out home improvement projects, states that the average price range to update electrical wiring in a home ranges from $2,000 to $9,000. This range depends on things like hourly rates charged by professionals, the size of your home, the accessibility of the wires needing to be replaced and the cost of other materials. The table below illustrates the average cost to rewire a home, and some high and low figures as well.

Many electricians will quote the cost to rewire a house as a cost per square foot. Therefore, it helps to know whether the price you’ve been given is on par with the national average. The average cost to rewire a house is typically between $2 and $4 per square foot.

Wondering how long it’ll take to get the job done? It’s an important thing to know when you’re paying a professional by the hour. In general, rewiring jobs are charged at one hour per 100 square feet.”

Another factor that comes into play for the total cost of rewiring a home is the cost of materials. Unfortunately, such costs can fluctuate wildly and make a big difference for home rewiring. For instance, the cost to rewire a 3,000 square foot home may be anywhere from $4,800 to $11,500. This doesn’t include any hidden “surprises” that may be found during the job requiring additional work.
