Make Your Home Safer & More Efficient With Electrical Rewiring
Sometimes improving home performance starts with the need for basic enhancements that you might not have considered. If you have an older home (built in the early twentieth century), it may still be running on outdated electrical wiring known as knob-and-tube wiring. After many decades, this wiring is likely worn. It also lacks the ability to handle the higher electrical demands of modern-day living. Many houses built in the 1960s and early 1970s include aluminum wiring, another known electrical safety hazard.
As part of an energy upgrade, the experts at BPP can assess your home’s electrical wiring for material and load capacity. If there are deficiencies, we can bring your electrical system up-to-date by rewiring your home in preparation for insulation.
Indications Your Home Might Need Electrical Rewiring
You never know what could be hidden behind the walls of your home. Even if your electrical system seems to be functioning properly, after many years, the electrical wiring could be inadequate and even dangerous. Here are some indications you may need an update:
- Flickering lights. One of the most common signs of a wiring problem is lights that flicker or dim on occasion. This is a sign that wiring is beginning to go bad.
- Blown fuses. If you are frequently replacing blown fuses in your breaker box, call BPP for an assessment of your electrical system.
- Warm or discolored outlets. Don’t ignore outlets that are putting off heat or that show discoloration. Do not use the outlet until it is inspected by a licensed electrician.
- Burning smells. If you have appliances or rooms that smell like something is burning when powered on, call a licensed electrician for immediate assistance.
- Knob-and-tube wiring. This outdated electrical wiring system should be replaced or augmented with up-to-code electrical wiring.
