How Do I Know if I Need to Update My Wiring?

Your home’s electrical system may display one or more possible signs signaling it’s due for an electrical wiring update. Mr. Electric of Grand Prairie has helped countless homeowners upgrade their old homes’ electrical wiring with years of electrical expertise and quick, efficient service. We also understand the latest electrical code updates and complete wiring jobs that are compliant to perform safely and reliably.

You Have Old House Wiring

Rewiring a house’s electrical system is a large project with many complex factors. Fortunately, Mr. Electric of Grand Prairie’s electrical experts don't always need to replace an old home's wiring entirely. However, we will typically need to remove and replace some of your home’s wiring. For example, aluminum wiring found in many homes built in the 1960s and 1970s is a well-known safety hazard. Other examples of hazardous wiring include pre-1930s homes with knob and tube wiring and houses from the 1940s and 1950s with non-metallic wiring. We also replace loose connections and frayed wires from botched do-it-yourself projects or wear and tear from time and use.

You Have Ungrounded, Two-Pronged Outlets

Mr. Electric of Grand Prairie has experience identifying various signs of outdated electrical systems, and ungrounded, two-pronged outlets are one clear sign. These outlets are a severe safety hazard, endangering your family and risking your electronics. Because of their lack of proper grounding, a two-pronged outlet’s electrical excesses don’t have anywhere to go but into a person or device in contact with it. Even having a surge protector may not be adequate protection against electrical excess for you and your devices. Having our technicians install three-pronged outlets and grounded wires can help you reduce shock risks quickly and easily.

You’re Missing GFCIs

You can easily spot outlets with GFCIs because of the “Test” and ”Reset” buttons on their receptacles. GFCIs protect your devices and family against shock in areas with water or high moisture in or around your home. The current electrical code requires GFCIs in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, utility rooms, spa or pool areas, unfinished basements or crawlspaces, garages, and other areas. Generally, you require GFCIs in any electrified area outside your home. If you don’t install these inexpensive and easy-to-install devices in appropriate interior and exterior spaces, you risk a shocking experience in these residential areas.

You’re Missing AFCIs

AFCIs are essential to keep devices and people safe while providing reliable energy throughout your home. This technology prevents fires by acting like a circuit breaker and disconnecting when a potentially dangerous arc happens. The electrical code requires AFCIs in bedrooms in all 50 states. In fact, some states require homeowners to have AFCIs in all circuits throughout their homes.

You Have Inadequate Appliance Outlets

Any of the outlets in your home are different from each other. For instance, outlets for appliances like washers, dryers, and ovens must safely draw higher amounts of electricity to keep them running at their best performance. Home appliances didn’t always need special plugs, but today’s appliances rely on 240-volt outlets for each heavy-duty appliance. Three-pronged plug wiring is a common household option for older electrical systems. Most of the latest 240 plugs have four prongs for improved safety because of the ground wire addition. Mr. Electric of Grand Prairie can help you determine if you need to replace outlets and update your system to support your new appliances.

Your Home’s Electrical Panel is Inadequate

Do you know how many amps power your home? 60-amp breaker wiring was adequate for homes around 20 years ago, but today’s houses typically require 100 to 200 amps to successfully power all the electronics and appliances plugged into an electrical system for people to use simultaneously. These devices include flat-screen televisions, refrigerators, mobile devices, and air conditioners. Installing upgraded breaker box wiring is the best update you can perform to meet your home’s increasing energy needs.
