Here are some signs to watch for that show it’s time to rewire your home’s electrical wiring:

Your home is 30 or more years old.

In any home built before 1985, electrical wiring could be old and outdated. Having it evaluated by a licensed electrical contractor will help you know if it’s time for a replacement.

You’re tripping the breaker.

If you’re regularly tripping breakers or blowing fuses, it’s a sign that your home’s demand is more than the system can take. A qualified electrical contractor can help you make the necessary changes to make your home ready for the demand you’re placing on it.

You regularly need extension cords.

If you’re relying on extension cords to plug in your electrical items, it means you don’t have enough outlets. If a room has just one or two outlets, then you need an update.

Your lights dim or flicker when you turn on an appliance.

This shows that the old electrical wiring isn’t up to the task to properly power the items inside your home.

Your outlets are stained.

Staining or discoloring of the electrical outlets means your home’s experiencing surges in power. This is a fire risk and needs to be addressed.
