In many cases, the way a home is wired when it was first built fits the family’s needs and remains in good condition for many years. There are, however, scenarios in which residential electrical rewiring services might be needed. Here are a few examples of situations in which you should reach out to a qualified and experienced electrician to make wiring changes in your home.
- Room use change- When wiring is first installed, it is done to code based on the practical use for the room. What that means is that wiring for a kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room would be different from the bedrooms. If you were to convert a room, such as make a spare bedroom into a home office, the wiring may not support the additional power demands, making residential electrical rewiring necessary.
- Additional appliances- Most major appliances should have a dedicated circuit, so if you were to put another appliance in your home, such as a spare freezer in the garage, it is best to have wiring put in especially for it.
- Older home- Wiring doesn’t last forever. If you have an older home, it is a good idea to have the wiring inspected to see if rewiring the entire home would be wise from a safety consideration or to upgrade from an older system such as a fuse box to a circuit breaker system.
- Renovations- Moving appliances or other things around during a renovation often involves a bit of rewiring.
