Advantages of Rewiring Your Home

It’s easy to take your home’s wiring for granted. After all, out of sight, out of mind—until an electrical fire breaks out in your home or power goes out. When a home’s electrical system fails, that’s when most of us start to pay attention to the wiring. However, it’s important to upgrade your home’s wiring before an electrical disaster strikes.

At Mr. Electric, we pride ourselves on offering professional electrical services, including electrical rewiring, electrical panel repairs, electrical safety inspections, and more. Our electricians have the knowledge, experience, and state-of-the-art tools to handle all of your electrical service needs. In this article, we will outline the advantages of updating your home’s wiring and why it’s important to hire a qualified electrician for rewiring.

Improved Safety

Old and outdated wiring can create fire hazards, the risk of electrocution, and sometimes fatal injuries. Everything from knob-and-tube wiring to aluminum wiring and bad wiring can result in electrical failures. A home rewiring project can dramatically improve your home’s electrical safety.

More Reliable Power

Outdated wiring is the most common cause of power outages in homes. In addition to easily overloading, older wiring systems may not have the capacity to distribute adequate amounts of power. Rewiring your home will ensure reliable power supply and reduce power outages.

Increased Electrical Capacity

If you live in an older house built before the 1960s, your wiring system may be designed for lower voltage ratings, such as a 60-amp system. A wiring system with low voltage ratings may not be able to handle the electrical demands of modern appliances and devices. By updating your home’s electrical wiring, your electrical system can be able to support modern appliances and electronics and avoid the risk of overloading.

Regulatory Compliance

Electrical safety code and standards change constantly. Older wiring systems may not meet the new safety standards that may have been implemented since your home’s wiring was installed or updated last. Updating your home’s wiring will ensure your electrical system is up to code. Electrical code violations could lead to penalties and make it difficult to sell or rent your house to someone else.

Improved Property Value

A safe and reliable electrical system is a big selling point for any home. If you’re considering selling your home and looking for simple and inexpensive ways to get a higher home sale value, invest in rewiring and a comprehensive electrical safety inspection. This can possibly increase the value of your home by thousands.

Cheaper Home Insurance

Electrical rewiring can potentially lead to lower home insurance premiums. Some insurance companies offer discounts if your home was recently rewired because it is considered a lower risk for electrical fires and other hazards.

Warning Signs You Need to Update Your Home’s Wiring

  • You have two-prong ungrounded outlets in your home
  • Circuit breakers trip frequently
  • You have aluminium or knob-and-tube wiring in your home
  • Your lights flicker or dim randomly
  • Fuses blowing repeatedly
  • Your home is more than 40 years old and you’ve never updated your electrical wiring
