RESIDENTIAL ELECTRICAL SERVICES
Wiring & Rewiring
You flip the switch and the lights come on. You open the fridge and you know that your food is kept cold. Your computer runs without any issues. So, your electrical wiring must be okay, right? Maybe not. Many older homes (40 years or older) have wiring that isn’t up to current safety standards. Or, you may live in a house where your family’s increase in power needs means the existing wiring cannot handle the load of power running through it. Old or faulty wiring is the number one cause of house fires, and the older your home is, the greater the risk of fire due to wiring that may be unsafe and outdated.
Here are some warning signs that your electrical wiring may be unsafe and faulty:
• Dimming or flickering of lights
• Warm or loose outlets or light switches
• Breakers that are constantly tripping
• Breaker boxes that are overloaded or outdated
• You feel tingling when you touch a light switch or appliance
• A burning smell that is consistent with overheated wiring
• Many ungrounded 2 prong outlets throughout your home
• Your electrical system consists of aluminum or knob and tube wiring
