Warning Signs that You Need to Rewire Your Home
A lot of older homes have wiring that needs to be replaced. And unfortunately, sometimes, the cheapest wiring material was used at the time of construction to save on cost. Some of the early signs that there is a potentially dangerous electrical issue include:
1. Circuit breakers that are always tripping
A breaker will trip to prevent fire when circuits get too hot. If you have an older home, it may not be equipped to handle the amp requirements of modern electronics and appliances. This can lead to the breaker tripping constantly and is a sure sign that you need to upgrade your electrical wiring.
2. Damaged electrical outlets from power surges or lightning
If you have charred switches and outlets around the house, it means you either have power surge issues or faulty wiring is causing small fires. This needs quick action before a major electrical house fire erupts.
3. Dimming or flickering of lights when you use an appliance
Again, this may be an indication of your home being unable to handle the power requirements. It was not wired to accommodate all the electrical gadgets, appliances, and equipment you are using today.
4. Being shocked when you turn on appliances or electronics
This means there are power problems in your home and you need to fix it quickly before it causes even more severe issues.
5. Aluminum Wiring
If your wiring jacket has AL written on it, you have a problem. AL means that your system was made with aluminum wiring. This was discontinued in the early 1970s because the aluminum wiring can lead to electrical fires.
Other signs that you need an electrical wiring upgrade include:
- Knob and tube wiring, which is outdated
- Damaged circuits from rodents, water exposure, or wear and tear
- Outdated fuse boxes
- Overloaded circuits
If you are affected by any of these or other electrical problems, contact Baker Brothers today by calling 214-324-8811 or scheduling your appointment online. The longer you wait to address these problems, the higher the likelihood of an electrical fire.
