Electrical Retrofitting for Drexel Hill Homes

The idea of retrofitting your entire home can seem like a daunting one. But at Hughes Electric Inc., we’re here to make the whole process easier.

While some electrical service upgrades require excessive work within the walls of your home for wiring, the electrical box, lighting, and beyond—others are simpler.

If you’re the owner of an older home in Drexel Hill, it’s important to learn about your home’s electrical system. By looking in the other direction, you will be risking a lot more than some flickering lights.

Electrical fires account for 51,000 fires in North America yearly, with many resulting in injury, death, and financial loss. Don’t let your home become a ticking time bomb. Call Hughes Electric Inc. today for a free assessment and find out if your electrical system is as safe as it should be.

Signs Your Home Needs an Upgrade

The signs are obvious, but not ones we always see for what they are. Do your lights flicker regularly? Burn out often? Do your fuses blow? Are your energy bills high?

Many homeowners in Drexel Hill just chock this up to living in an old home. But it’s not something you have to—or should—live with.

Character in an older home applies to the historical design work, not electrical quirks. If your home seems like it has a poltergeist in it, this is a sign that your electrical system isn’t doing so hot and it’s time to call in the pros.

Add Value to Your Home

Electric retrofitting is important. Outdating wiring is unsafe. Older electrical systems were not created to handle the amount of electrical devices the average person uses in this age of technology.

However, an electrical service upgrade won’t just keep you and your home safe, you’ll benefit from it in other ways as well.

An older home with a new electrical box and wiring has a higher market value should you choose to sell. Not to mention, your energy bills are going to go way down.

The potential savings of an energy efficient electrical service upgrade is $723-$1,182 annually. Think about what you could do with all that money you’ll be saving!
