Signs Your Home Electrical Wiring Is Due for an Update

It’s not common to be unsure if your home requires a wiring update. Mr. Electric of Gastonia can help you determine if it’s time for a home wiring update through our electrical inspection services. Several possible signs help indicate when it’s time to update your electrical system. Our highly trained electricians can quickly and efficiently upgrade your wiring while ensuring your home meets the latest electrical code. Take a look at these signs that it’s time to update your home’s electrical wiring:

  • Old, Outdated Wiring – Whenever we inspect an electrical system, we look to see if the entire home needs to be rewired or if it’s only a tiny section. If you live in an older home, you’ll likely need a complete home wiring upgrade. During the 1960s and 1970s, aluminum wiring was the standard, and these need to be replaced for safety concerns. It’s possible your home still utilizes knob and tube wiring or even non-metallic wiring that must also be replaced.
  • Ungrounded, Two-Pronged Outlets – One of the most straightforward ways to see if your home needs a wiring update is to see if you have ungrounded, two-pronged outlets. These outlets prevent an apparent safety hazard that puts your family and home at risk of an electrical fire. If these outlets are not properly grounded, the excess electricity has nowhere to go but into the electronic device or possibly you. Mr. Electric of Gastonia can help reduce your risk of shock by installing modern three-pronged outlets and ground wires.
  • Missing GFCIsGround fault circuit interrupters or GFCI outlets have “test” and “reset” buttons. GFCIs are designed to shut off the flow of power. The current electrical code requires GFCIs to be installed in areas with high moisture, such as kitchens, bathrooms, pool areas, garages, etc. They are an inexpensive way to upgrade your home and can be quickly installed by our team.
  • Missing AFCIs – These are designed to help reduce and prevent electrical fires by disconnecting access to your home’s electrical system if danger occurs. These are also required to be installed by current electrical codes.
  • Inadequate Appliance Outlets – Your home’s appliances draw large amounts of electricity to run optimally. Recently all your home’s appliances require a specific outlet designed just for their needs. You’ll need a 240-volt outlet for your heavy-duty appliances.
  • Insufficient Electrical PanelIt’s not uncommon to be unsure how many amps power your home. Most home’s today typically require amps in the range of 100 to 200 to power all of your modern electronics and appliances. Mr. Electric of Gastonia can upgrade your breaker box’s wiring to support your air conditioner, entertainment center, and more.
