With a team of fully certified residential electricians, you can’t go wrong with our years of skill in the industry and state of the art tools. Prepared for any job, the Hughes Electric Inc. crew is the one for you when you need to bring your home from the future into the present.
Why Rewire if There’s Nothing Wrong?
Just because nothing is evidently wrong in your older home at this moment, doesn’t mean you won’t be looking at problems down the line that could have been prevented with home rewiring.
If you’re the owner of an older home, you’ve likely heard of knob and tube wiring before. Knob and tube wiring was used from the 1800s up until the 1940s, and features no ground wire making them dangerous especially with appliances that use a three-prong outlet.
Now—try to think of an appliance that doesn’t use a three-prong outlet! If your home has knob and tube wiring, you’re risking electrical fire every time you plug in that laptop charger.
Call your Havertown professionals at Hughes Electric Inc. to take a look at your older home if you’re unsure about what’s going on with your wiring. And, if you’re looking at purchasing a new home, make sure to inquire about the last time wiring work was done.
Electrical Rewiring a Whole House: Cost
