The electrical wiring in your home is one of the most important but overlooked aspects of the home. Most people are happy if their lights turn on and off but give little additional thought to their electrical wiring.
Poor electrical wiring can be annoying and downright dangerous. Electrical fires are one of the most common types of house fires and can be prevented through regular maintenance and care.
Not only can electrical rewiring improve the safety of your home but it can also help save you time and money in the future. Here are a few reasons you may want to consider electrical rewiring in your home.
New Wiring Allows for Modern Conveniences
If you have been interested in getting into the smart home craze with voice-controlled lights, smart thermostats, and timers on some appliances, then you may have found that the older wiring is insufficient for these new applications.
Not only is this a bit of a downer as you cannot make use of the latest and greatest technology, but old wiring can prevent you from enjoying cost savings on energy. Your old wiring is essentially draining your wallet and preventing you from making the changes needed.
Make Selling Your Home Easier
If you are considering selling your home in the future then you may want to begin planning for wiring upgrades now. Many home buyers will insist on home inspections and poor wiring could throw the sale process into a tailspin. With condition dates and purchase timelines, new electrical wiring is the last thing you want to be discussing as you sign off on real estate offers.
There is nothing more stressful for homeowners than having to call electricians in a panic to do wiring upgrades because their home sale has been stalled. Not only does this put the sale of their own home in peril but it could derail the purchase of a new home that depends on the sale proceeds of the existing home.
New Wiring Lasts Longer
Some people choose to delay electrical rewiring as long as possible in order to hopefully make their existing wiring last as long as possible. Not only can this be dangerous, the costs are simply being moved further down the road.
New electrical wiring has a much longer life after installation than wiring that is even only 20 years old. Properly and professionally installed electrical wiring could last up to 100 years before needing replacement. This should be especially important for those who want to pass along their family home to children without the burden of additional repairs.
