I would go with this: if the repair is a "simple" and isolated repair: i.e. replace a lamp and switch, etc. I would expense it for the tax year of the expense. If you are rewiring the whole house I would depreciate it. I suspect the depreciation schedule would be the same as for the home, not like it is for the fridge or dishwasher.
