Electrical Rewiring

Electrical Rewiring

As technological advances continue to move forward with energy efficient products, it’s important to pay attention to the existing electrical wiring in your home or business. Outdated wiring, especially knob and tube wiring, is not only an extinct style of wiring a building, but it also poses a very real and dangerous hazard as the wiring gets older over time. 

Signs You Need Electrical Rewiring

Although rewiring your home or business may not always be ideal, there are warning signs that you should look out for. If you experience any of the below warning signs, you should give the trusted electricians at Berkeley Electric a call today!
  • Frequently blown fuses
  • An over-fused electrical panel
  • Light bulbs that burn out often
  • Burning smells
  • Sparks from an outlet when you plug or unplug a cord
  • Regularly flickering lights
Even if you don’t experience any of these warning signs, it can be a good idea to have your wiring inspected from time to time. If your home is more than 40 years old, it can be a great precautionary measure to have your electrical system looked at. Other instances to consider rewiring include if you rely on extension cords for power, if you’ve made major home or building improvements, if your electrical system has ungrounded or two prong outlets, or if your property has aluminum wiring as opposed to copper. Our professional electricians can advise you on if your system is still in good working condition or if it needs any work. Give Berkeley Electric a call today and let’s get started on your next electrical rewiring job! We’ll get your electrical system safe and up to code in no time.
