Renovations / Remodeling / Old Whole House Re-Wiring
Remodeling frequently requires electrical work, whether it’s relocating electrical receptacles (outlets) or installing new lighting. Renovation is also an opportunity to check your home’s electrical panel and circuits to ensure that the system is functioning correctly and is not overloaded.
In a long-term study of the electrical wiring in older homes, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) found that when the electrical system was correctly designed, installed and still functioning within the environment it was intended to power, it was generally still safe, despite the age of the wiring and electrical components. However, the study also found that older systems often had increased electrical load usage beyond the control of the electrical contractor. Also, older systems that had been modified improperly by homeowners or unqualified and unlicensed electricians were not safe and were at a much greater risk for fires.
