Signs You Need to Rewire Your Home

If you notice any of the following, your Pennsylvania home may require rewiring:

  • Frequent tripped breakers or blown fuses from overloaded circuits
  • Wall plates or switches that are hot to the touch
  • Light fixtures that flicker or dim unexpectedly
  • Strange and inconsistent electrical meter activity
  • GFCIs that frequently trip, indicating ground faults
  • Cracked or frayed wire insulation
  • Sparks from outlets or switches when turned on

Rewiring by our electricians ensures safe, robust power delivery. We replace old wires with new circuits run efficiently throughout your home.

Updating Your Electrical Panel: When and Why

Upgrading your electrical panel makes sense when:

  • Additional capacity is needed for renovations or new appliances
  • You have a Federal Pacific or Zinsco panel, which present fire risks
  • The panel still uses outdated fuses requiring hard-to-find replacements
  • There is no room left for additional circuits in the current panel
  • You want modern safety features like arc fault or ground fault protection

New panels provide extra capacity for today’s electricity demands and safety. We specify the optimal size panel and handles all required installation work.

  • Frequent tripping of breakers or blown fuses
  • Flickering lights or unexpected power loss
  • Discolored cables or cracked insulation
  • Burning smell from outlets or switches
  • Buzzing from wall plates or outlet boxes
  • Sparks when turning lights or appliances on/off

Pinpointing issues early prevents dangerous shorts that can lead to fires or shocks.

  • You want modern safety features like arc fault breakers

New wiring and expanded panels provide protection and capacity for years.

Enhancing Energy Efficiency with New Wiring Installation

New wires run efficiently to actual usage areas can lower electrical bills. Shorter wire runs suffer less voltage drop compared to outdated wiring spanning entire homes loosely. Any hazardous insulation slowing current flow is eliminated as well with fresh wiring. Added lighting and appliance circuits also allow smarter energy management.

Upgrading to Meet the Electrical Needs of Your Household

With practically everything requiring charging or power nowadays, capacity is always a concern in older homes. New 200 amp panels with ample breaker spaces ensure you can support additional lighting, appliances and devices without tripping breakers. Prep for electric vehicle charging stations can also be built in.

Whether it’s faulty receptacles causing shock risks, overloaded circuits dimming lights, or lack of grounding creating fire hazards – upgraded wiring resolves it all. Copper wires encased in sturdy, modern insulation last for decades without common failures. Enjoy peace of mind that electrical safety and performance is current and code compliant after upgrades.
