If you own an old home, a house rewiring project may be on your mind. Today’s modern families often use more energy than older homes were designed to safely provide. At Mister Sparky, we know the incredible benefits that can come from rewiring an older home, and we also understand the type of commitment that this kind of project requires. However, if done at the right time and by the right professionals, rewiring can go smoothly and greatly increase the value of your home and property.
When Should You Rewire?
The best time to do a rewiring of an entire home is when there is currently a renovation project underway. This saves the time and money required to rip out drywall and other materials in order to gain access to the wiring locations. There is little worse than putting the finishing touches on a brand new bathroom only to realize that you must now demolish your beautiful imported Italian tile in order to upgrade wiring that could have easily been fixed during the renovation. However, to ensure that it is the proper time, homeowners should consider the length of the house rewiring project, where they will be living during the project, and the financial obligations involved.
Sometimes the best time to complete a rewiring project is immediately after you discover there is a problem. Many people do not recognize the telltale signs that our electricians can easily spot, so they are unaware that their electrical systems are overburdened and may have turned into fire hazards. When this is discovered, homeowners should never put their safety on the line and should contact an experienced Long Island electrician immediately to create a plan.
