Updating Your Electrical System
If you’re wondering if your electrical system has been updated to current standards or are contemplating upgrading your system, we can help guide you through this process. One sign your home’s electrical wiring is outdated is the use of a fuse-box instead of circuit breakers. Although fuse boxes can still serve your home, they can be unsafe. The use of power in homes today is much greater than it was before circuit breakers were required. Regularly blown fuses are an indication of electrical overload. We can upgrade your electrical panel to a circuit breaker system, creating a safer power source for your home.
Even after renovation, some older homes may still have 2-prong outlets. In 1965, the National Electrical Code changed the requirement to 3-prong outlets, introducing the use of a ground wire. The added wire is used to direct unsafe electrical current away from the outlet, reducing the risk of shock or ignition of nearby objects. If your home still has 2-prong outlets, you may be at a higher risk for fires or electrocution.
From beginning to end of any job, we inspect the home or device, provide you an upfront, flat-rate price and keep you informed until the installation or repair is complete. If you’re ready to update your home’s electrical system, contact us today!
