Why is Electrical Rewiring Important?

Though electrical systems are designed to last for decades, they will eventually deteriorate and need to be replaced. Failing to do so will not only lead to performance issues, but it could also result in fire or electrocution hazards. New wiring also comes with other benefits such as increased energy efficiency, lower utility bills, and longer fixture lifespans. 

Signs You Need to Rewire Your Home

If you’re like most people, then you probably don’t think about your electrical system every time you flip a switch. However, completely ignoring the condition of your system could cause you to overlook warning signs that your wiring is wearing out. To avoid potentially dangerous electrical problems, keep an eye out for these signs that your house needs rewiring:

  • Frequently flickering or dimming lights
  • Lightbulbs prematurely burning out
  • Sparking outlets or blown fuses
  • Discolored sockets or switches
  • Faint burning smell in your home
  • Regular power fluctuations
  • 25+ years since your last rewiring

Electrical Rewiring FAQs

What does rewiring mean?

Rewiring is the process of replacing all of the electrical components in your home with newer and safer parts. This could include:

  • Running new wiring throughout your home
  • Installing new circuit breaker panels
  • Replacing socket or switch back boxes
  • Upgrading your panels or installing a generator
  • Relocating inaccessible sockets
  • Ensuring your system is up to code

Can I rewire my house on my own?

As with all electrical work, rewiring should only be performed by a qualified professional. Mistakes could lead to fatal electrocution or housefires. Even if you manage to avoid serious injury or property damage, you may not adhere to building regulations and could cause long-term electrical issues for yourself and your family. 

Should I get electrical repairs or rewiring?

Electrical repairs are typically best for fixing small problems or damaged areas, while full house rewiring is generally reserved for widespread issues with your electrical system. For example, if you have a few loose power outlets or a blown fuse, repairs are likely best. Meanwhile, if your system is outdated or you’re frequently dealing with electrical issues, then a rewiring may be necessary. 

If you aren’t sure whether repairs or rewiring is best for you, don’t worry! The experts at Energized Electric LLC can inspect your system and provide recommendations based on what will be safest, most effective, and least expensive. 

How long does it take to rewire a house?

It typically takes between 2 and 10 days to rewire a house. However, the exact project length will depend on the overall size and complexity of your electrical system. Prior to beginning work, our technicians can inspect your system to provide you with a more personalized estimate of the timeline.

Can I live in my house while it’s being rewired?

You can definitely live in your house while it’s being rewired! Though rewiring projects are notorious for being a large undertaking, the experienced technicians at Energized Electric LLC take care to avoid disrupting your daily life more than is absolutely necessary. 

Even when accessing wires that are located behind walls, we take precautions to prevent damage to your property. At the end of each day, we also thoroughly clean our workspaces and make necessary repairs to ensure you never feel like you’re living in a construction zone.
