Updating electrical wiring old home
With the explosion of home renovation shows such as House Detective, Holmes On Homes and Income Property, you would be hard pressed to find the person who isn’t aware that any renovation of an older home would require the specialized services of a licensed, qualified electrician.
Often conjuring up images of the older, ‘quaint’, 40 year-old home, the word “renovation” has almost become synonymous with a neglected home in disrepair, complete with bundles of wiring that could pass for extension cords.
Obvious stuff that would appear glaringly unsafe to the average person.
What doesn’t come to mind is your typical, one or two-story home built anywhere from the 1980’s to early 2000’s.
But in today’s housing market, doing a kitchen and bath remodel could mean the difference between a sale and seeing no movement at all.
When was the last time you checked up on the condition of your electrical system?If it has been a while, then now is the right time to inspect it.Don’t just assume that different elements of your electrical system such as the electric cables and explosion proof enclosures are working fine as they have a tendency to wear out after a few years.If you live in an old house or if your current system is unable to meet your family’s power needs, then it is time to update your electrical system.
The overall efficiency of your home’s energy will be drastically reduced.
This will also show up in your electric bills apart from the appliances getting ruined.
