Signs You Should Upgrade Your Home’s Electrical System
If you can’t remember the last time your home’s wiring was inspected, it may be a good idea to have a licensed electrician take a look. Our experts will be able to tell you how old your wiring, fuse box or circuit breaker and fixtures are, how well they’re working and whether they pose any risks to your family.
You should also schedule an inspection if you notice any of the following problems:
- Tingling sensations when you touch any outlet
- Your lights frequently flicker or dim
- Your circuit breakers frequently trip
- Your home still operates on fuses
- Outlets or appliances produce a burning smell
- Outlets spark, melt, overheat, warp or look discolored
- Your kitchen or bathroom lacks resettable GFCI outlets
- You rely on power strips for outlets
Why Should I Invest in Electrical System Upgrades?
Replacing your home’s wiring or installing an electrical panel upgrade is a smart investment that improves the safety and the value of your home. It could help with:
- Energy efficiency: Upgraded, contemporary electrical systems are far more energy-efficient than their outdated analogs. You’ll get more reliable, safe electricity and pay less for it.
- Capacity: Decades ago, the average home needed about 60 amps of electricity to cover all of its needs. Today, however, the average home requires around 100 to 150 amps. If you’re still relying on a 60 amp system, you likely notice all kinds of potentially-dangerous (and expensive!) problems.
- Convenience: An outdated electrical system often means that you need more outlets than you have. If the outlets you do have lack the right number of prongs, or they aren’t GFCI outlets, we can upgrade them as well as install additional outlets.
- Applications: While adding electrical upgrades to your home, you can easily install new systems onto it. Expand your coverage to your unfinished basement, garage, outdoor patio and more.
- Resale value: Replacing outdated, potentially faulty electrical wiring with a reliable modern alternative is a great way to raise the resale value of your home.
