December 14, 2021
Did you know that 30% of home fire hazards are caused by faulty electrical wiring? If your wiring has served you for more than ten years, it is safe to say maintenance checks with a professional electrician are in order. At HomeOps Electric, we believe that most electrical hazards can be detected and avoided before it becomes a huge problem that costs you thousands of dollars in repairs and replacements. The reality is that most people barely think about their wiring unless there's a problem, putting the safety of their loved ones and property at risk. Here are several benefits why of electrical rewiring in Long Island.
Wiring issues are among the top causes of electrocutions, burns, and fatalities. With that in mind, failing to maintain efficient and effective electrical wiring puts everyone on the premises at risk. Since most people can't tell the signs of a compromised wiring system, scheduling routine maintenance helps you get ahead of such problems before they get out of hand. Once you start detecting buzzing outlets and flickering lights, your electrical wiring is outdated and needs to be upgraded as soon as possible. An electrician can conduct an assessment to pinpoint the issue before proceeding with partial or whole house electrical rewiring to protect you against future mishaps.
There's nothing more frustrating than losing power in the middle of the shower or your favorite TV show. Faulty electrical wiring is often the cause of tripping breakers and power failures, putting you and all the connected appliances at risk. Outdated wiring is limited in the amount of power it distributes, leading to constant blackouts that affect your home's comfort. Hiring an electrician for electrical rewiring goes a long way in ensuring you get more reliable power for a better quality of life.
Many homes in the United States built in the '60s had a 60-amp system, which doesn't come close to today's electrical demands and technology. This is one of the main causes of electrical hazards like fires, compromising the safety of everyone in that household. HomeOps Electric recommends at least 100-amps for modern residences to protect powerful appliances that require a lot of power. An electrician can assess your electrical needs and help you get the right amps depending on the devices installed and their usage.
All your appliances should never go into one circuit. Rewiring allows you to configure your wiring more flexibly with separate circuits. This goes a long way in preventing electrical issues. If you have several appliances in a single circuit, you should consider electrical rewiring before experiencing major electrical hazards.
Most areas require a mandatory home inspection to ensure that everything complies with set guidelines and regulations. A house rewiring prevents common risks addressed by these regulations, protecting you from hefty fines and legal action. The last thing you want is spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on a fine that could be avoided by rewiring your home for less.
