electrical rewiringDeciding when it’s time for electrical rewiring can be an issue of safety, necessity or convenience. At Lamm Electric, we’d like to help you with some of the tell-tale signs that you may need to consider electrical rewiring in your home.

Safety– Poorly wired or outdated homes can pose a safety threat to you and your family. Some signs that its time may be having breakers that trip frequently or fuses that blow repeatedly. If you get a prickly sensation when you use some appliances or outlets, smell something burning, or notice sparks when you plug and unplug things, you may have a serious electrical rewiring need that, if left unnoticed, could be quite dangerous.

Necessity– Maybe you have older wiring throughout your home, but it has proven to be safe and reliable, at least for the time being. Consider that some insurance companies charge higher premiums for homes with older electrical wiring because of the potential threat it can pose. If you are looking to sell your home, older electrical can be a major turnoff for buyers who will not want to deal with the hassle themselves down the line. Consider electrical rewiring to get you up to code for insurance companies and make your home more appealing to buyers.

Convenience– If your home was built in the 60s or 70s, or maybe even 80s or 90s, there is no way that the electrical allows for all the technology and power needs that homes today require. Consider that homes have more televisions, stronger air conditioners or heaters, more expensive appliances and families that are ‘plugged-in” for a large majority of the day. Consider electrical rewiring if your home does not allow you to have all the technology advancements you’d like.
