Residential Electrical Rewiring in Drexel Hill
In North America, we’ve been wiring our homes since 1880. The original method used was knob and tube wiring, a system that used no ground wiring. In 1940, we moved on to the copper wiring of today. Older homes in Drexel Hill are beautiful, and the goal of many homeowners. But if you’re currently living in or planning to purchase one, it’s important to keep in mind that it may need rewiring.
At Hughes Electric Inc. we have done household electrical rewiring for hundreds of local homes. And, while it’s one of the bigger projects out there for a residential electrician, with our effective techniques and years of experience, we can bring your home safely into the future in no time.
When to Call Hughes Electric Inc.
Right off the bat, we’d recommend giving us a call if your home is 40-50 years old. Homes that age or older in Drexel Hill had older wiring in them at some point, and may still have it.
If you are a potential homeowner looking at older homes on the market, bringing your own certified electrician around for an inspection is a good idea. The current owners of the home may not know the full wiring history and could be giving you inaccurate information intentionally or not.
Some obvious signs that your home needs rewiring include:
- Electrical shocks when using outlets
- Loose or burned outlets
- Persistent smell of burning
- Regularly dim and flickering lights
- Fuses blowing all the time
Ask yourself if it feels like your house is haunted. Flickering lights, strange noises, and strange smells? It’s not ghosts—it’s your household electrical wiring.
