Your Electrician for Older Homes in San Diego
Providing Permanent Solutions For All of Your Electrical Problems
Homes that are more than 30 years old are not equipped for modern electrical demands. It may be time to consider updating your electrical system or to have it inspected for safety. Point Loma Electric specializes in upgrading the electrical systems of older homes. If your breakers trip when you plug in too many appliances it may be time to consider an electrical service upgrade. If you have space in your breaker box, we may be able to add additional circuits to your existing service. However, if you are already utilizing all the available power in your home, it may be time to consider an electrical service upgrade. Most homes have only 100 amps of available power. Space heaters, blow dryers, microwaves, plasma TVs and computers were most likely not available when your home was built. These days most modern homes require a minimum of 200 amps of electrical service in order to support today’s appliances.
Is It Time For An Electrical Safety Inspection?
In order to protect your wires from overheating and starting a fire, circuit breakers are designed to trip and cut off the power to everything on that circuit. This is a good thing. When circuit breakers get old and worn out, they may not trip when there’s too much power being drawn on a single circuit. If you are living in an older home and your lights are not going out when multiple appliances are plugged in, it’s time for an Electrical Safety Inspection. If too much electricity is flowing through your house wires and your breakers are not tripping you may have a dangerous fire hazard on your hands. More fires are started from faulty or overloaded wiring than any other cause. We are Electrical Safety Experts and can let you know if the the wiring in your home is safe and to code or is dangerous and in need of repair.
