Whole House Rewiring by Mister Sparky, Tampa

Whether your home is new or older, electrical wiring is of utmost importance. Whole-house rewiring is sometimes necessary to update the existing wiring system so you can rest assured that your property and loved ones are safe. Ensuring that your electrical system is up-to-date enhances safety and increases the efficiency and functionality of your home’s electrical framework.

The Dangers of Outdated Wiring

Older homes may be charming, but they tend to lose their capacity to handle large amounts of power, which can lead to safety issues. If you live in an older home, the chances of it having some wiring issues increases significantly. Therefore, regular inspection and maintenance of the electrical system are very important to ensure the safety of your home and loved ones.

Signs You Need Whole-House Rewiring

It’s imperative that you realize if your current wiring system is faulty or struggling to handle your current electrical needs.

The following are signs that your house may need rewiring:

Circuit Breaker Tripping

If your circuit breaker keeps tripping off or you’re blowing fuses, this is a warning sign that the wiring system you have cannot handle the quantity of electricity flowing through it.  If this is the case, it may be time to rewire the whole house.

Lights That Flicker

If your lights flicker on and off, this could mean that the wiring system is on the fritz. The flickering could be caused by outlets that are overloaded or wires that are damaged and cannot handle the amount of electricity running through.

Burning Smell or Sparks

If you smell burning wire or see sparks when you’re plugging in or unplugging a cord, this is a sign that the wiring system may be faulty and is a potential fire hazard. If you notice these signs, contact Mister Sparky in Tampa immediately and we’ll send a licensed electrician to assess the situation.

Warm Outlets

If you notice that an outlet is warm to the touch, this is a sign that the current electrical flow is too much and could potentially start a fire.

Older Home

Older homes aren’t usually up-to-date with current electrical safety standards, so they may require complete rewiring of the entire house coupled with an upgrade to the panel. The National Fire Protection Association states that a home built prior to 1980 is at a much higher risk of fire due to electrical issues than newer homes.

For example, aluminum wiring was the choice of wiring back in the 1960’s and 1970’s, but it’s been known to overheat and result in fires. Today, copper wiring is the preferred choice for home wiring due to its enhanced safety, reduced risk of overheating, and greater energy efficiency.
