The lights are dim or flickering

You may need our help rewiring an old house if you have dim or flickering lights. Fortunately, our local electricians have a lot of experience with home wiring. If the lights flash when you plug in an appliance, this is a sign that the old electrical system in your home is unable to supply enough electricity to the appliances. Damaged or frayed electrical cords can also cause lights to dim and increase the risk of electrical fire.

You smell something burning from the wall outlets

Never ignore the burning smell from outlets as it can be a precursor to an electrical fire.¬†Call one of our¬†emergency electricians as¬†soon as possible if you smell burning from the wall outlets.¬†Once you find the source of the smell, you’ll want to unplug anything in that outlet before cutting off the power supply in that room or area.¬†Each switch in¬†the electrical panel¬†should have a sticker next to it that clearly indicates which circuit it belongs to.

An overloaded circuit causes burning smell, damaged old electrical wiring, or an exposed wire. Any of these electrical problems require a call to one of our residential electricians. You should also call one of our local electricians if the outlet cover is  hot to the touch, crackling, or sizzling.

Your house was built over 40 years ago

Home rewiring may be required if your home was built more than 40 years ago. Today’s homeowners require far more electricity than previous generations for equipments. Some of them are microwaves, refrigerators, stoves, dryers, water heaters, smartphones, TVs, and other technologies. Fortunately, we can help you upgrade your electrical system so it can handle your energy needs.

Depending on the electrical wiring in your home, we may recommend a complete rewiring of the home or simply an upgrade of your electrical panel.¬†For example, you may simply need another¬†circuit and its respective switch to handle the increased power requirement. In general, we recommend that you update your home’s wiring if your home is over 40 years ago.
