Rewiring is a process that involves replacing your home’s wiring with fresh wiring. It’s an extensive yet important bit of maintenance to ensure your home is safe and efficient. As time passes, the wiring in your home will age and become unreliable. If you don’t replace this unreliable wiring, you’ll open yourself up to a variety of electrical problems, including possible electrical fires. However, you’ll get more than safety out of rewiring your New Jersey home.
Here are six benefits you’ll see by rewiring your New Jersey home:
Improved electrical capacity
If you have an older home, it likely doesn’t have the wiring to handle your modern electrical needs. Many modern electronics, like computers and modern televisions, didn’t exist when those homes were built. Because of this, they often don’t have the energy to handle these modern necessities. To compare, a home built in the 1960s likely has a maximum electrical capacity of 60 amps compared to today’s 100 amps. By updating your wiring, you can avoid overloading your circuits with a load most modern homes should handle easily.
A big benefit of rewiring your New Jersey home is that you’re ensuring your home’s safety. Older wiring and electrical systems become prone to a variety of faults and are be a danger to you and your home. Rewiring your home allows you to swap out the old wires for fresh ones. Also, rewiring lets you add to and update your home’s other safety measures, such as special wiring and smoke detectors.
Safer remodeling and extensions
Rewiring is very important if you’re planning on getting an extension or remodeling your home. There are two reasons rewiring is important for these. First, rewiring ensures your home can handle the electrical load it’ll face post-extension. Second, a rewiring confirms your new wiring will be up to code with the Electrical Safety Foundation.
Confirm your wiring lifespan
Unless you’ve already given your a home rewiring, you probably don’t know how old your wiring is. Having no idea how old your home’s wiring is can be dangerous if it happens to be old. On average, wiring can last around 20 years before it needs replacing. Having us rewire your home can help you get an idea of when your wires were installed and we can replace them as necessary.
Increase your home’s value
Safety is a major point for any home buyer, and rewiring is a way to improve your home’s safety. Rewiring your home and giving it an inspection can increase your home’s value by thousands of dollars.
Cheaper home insurance
A good amount of home insurance companies are willing to give lower rates if your home received rewiring recently. Because rewiring helps lower the chance of electrical fires, insurance companies see your home as less risky to insure. As a result, you’ll pay less for insurance.
