  • How to Know It's Time to Upgrade
    Upgrading electrical wiring in your home is more important than you may think. When you invest in the proper updates, you'll have a more reliable electrical system and a reduced risk of electric shock, residential fires, and other safety hazards. Check out these five ways to tell if it's time to call our home wiring experts:

    Your Home Is More Than 40 Years Old

    If you live in an older home and the wiring hasn't been updated in the last 40 years, you're due for an inspection! Older homes often have well-known safety hazards, such as loose connections and frayed wires. Our seasoned team can replace all of the following:

    • Aluminum wiring (used in the 1960s and '70s)
    • Non-metallic wiring (installed in the '40s and '50s)
    • Knob and tube wiring (used in the 1930s and before

You Can't Find Any GFCIs


Homes are required to have GFCI receptacles in high-moisture areas of the home. If you don't see any of these outlets labeled with "TEST" and "RESET" buttons, you likely need wiring upgrades. Thankfully, installing new GFCIs is inexpensive and straightforward. Let us know if you're missing GFCIs in the following areas:

  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchens
  • Laundry rooms
  • Utility rooms
  • Garages
  • Pool areas
  • Basements
  • Crawlspaces
  • Outside the home

You Have No AFCIs

Similar to GFCIs, AFCIs are crucial safety measures that prevent fire. These receptacles act as circuit breakers and will automatically disconnect in the event of a dangerous arc. They're mandated in bedrooms across the United States, and some regions require them throughout the home. No AFCIs? Our electricians can address the problem.

There Are Still Two-Pronged Outlets
If you live in an older home, you may notice more two-pronged outlets than three-pronged ones. These outlets were standard decades ago, but today, they're known as a huge safety hazard. They lack proper grounding and often allow excess electricity to surge into your devices (even if you have a surge protector). Beyond damage to your devices, two-pronged outlets are also more likely to cause painful electric shocks. Let our team know if you need to upgrade, and we'll find the proper three-pronged replacements.

Appliances Aren't Running at Full Power

Many modern appliances call for special 240-volt outlets to get adequate power. Nevertheless, not all homes are outfitted with the proper four-pronged receptacles. If you need improved outlets for heavy-duty appliances, be sure to talk to our electricians.
