Electrical Remodeling – What You Can’t See Can Hurt You
Filed under: Electrical Upgrades
When most people think remodeling, they envision all the cosmetic aspects of the home – the details that you can see with your naked eye. That means what tends to get forgotten is all the “behind the scenes” details, like electrical wiring.
No matter how attractive your home looks, what matters most is that it is safe. So it only makes sense that the focus should be on updating and upgrading your electrical system, above all else.
Are You in Need of Electrical Updates?
Homes that are only 20 years old could be a candidate for needing electrical renovations. That’s seemingly newer, but still, things have just changed so much. Some common reasons homeowners find that they need an updated electrical system is:
Homes still using 60 amps need to upgrade to at least 100 amps, but more would be better. Staying at 60 means constantly tripping breakers or blowing fuses, disconnecting power from one appliance to use another and taking a big risk with your safety.
In fact, if your home still has fuses, it makes sense to upgrade to circuit breakers. For one thing, the reaction time to fluctuations in power is quicker with circuit breakers, which means lower risk of incidents. Plus, a tripped breaker can easily be switched back on while a blown fuse requires replacement.
If it has been discovered that other homes in your neighborhood, or structures built by the same construction company, contain shoddy workmanship, you need to have a safety inspection, right away. It may not seem fair to have to incur this cost, but better to err on the side of caution. The last thing you want to do is discover your home needs new wiring, by waiting for a fire to break out.
Even aside from safety, although that is the most important factor, is the fact that this will make your life so much easier. Today’s demand for electrical supply is higher than ever. We have so many more gadgets and then other gadgets that need to charge and other gadgets to keep us preoccupied while we wait for that recharging process. So it only makes sense to bring your home to meet the modern day demand.
