Rewiring the electrical system in your home is no cheap or easy task, which is why when you decide to undertake the project, you’ll want to make sure you don’t have to do it again any time soon. Knocking down or tearing into walls can be a disaster (or ultimately impossible), so try to take a little time and plan for the future when rewiring your home.
Now, we understand that technology is always changing, and that there really is no magic crystal ball that tells us what things will look like in 5, 10, or 20 years. Consider that just 20 years ago, homes were being wired with the thought of phone and cable lines being routed to two main areas in the home and the electrical rewiring matching. With today’s technology advances, however, any member of the family may want to be able to access any amount of power in any room at any time. If you are constructing a new home, remodeling an existing one, or just plain fixing a problem anyway, you may want to plan for what type of needs your family may have down the line. Is a home theater in the books, but may not be a reality for a few more years? Consider rewiring with accommodations for that theater anyway. Are you hoping to finally put in a swimming pool in the backyard after your oldest leaves for college? Consider rewiring with that pool in mind.
At Lamm Electric, we’d like to help you plan for the future while we undertake your rewiring project. It will ultimately save you time and money down the line if you have prepared for what the ideal scenario may be. If you don’t ultimately decide to put in that home theater, the resale value of your home is still higher because your rewiring allows for it. Take a minute to sit down and consider some of your wants and needs. Maybe take a minute to research some of the latest in technology advancements that you think may become a reality for you and your family. Then take a minute to call us at Lamm Electric in Charlotte, and we’ll discuss how we can help you in your future planning when we do your rewiring. Your future self will be thankful you did!
