Upgrade Electrical Wiring in San Diego Older Homes
Is your home in need of an electrical wiring upgrade? If your San Diego home’s electrical system is made up of knob and tube or aluminum wiring, the you should investigate electrical upgrading or rewiring services. We are frequently called by customers requesting a house rewire.
The good news is that rewiring your whole house is not always needed. There are many other ways to upgrade your homes electrical system to meet your families electrical needs and keep your home and family safe.
When installed correctly knob and tube wiring was, in some ways, superior to current wiring practices. Unfortunately, this system is rarely intact after 80 or so years of use. Things that happen after the original installation can cause major problems. These electrical wiring systems lack a ground conductor and switches were often placed on a neutral wiring, turning off the circuit but not the current. This can cause a lot of problems for your home, often resulting in costly damages and repairs.
Aside from obvious safety and efficiency issues, there seems to be a growing concern about this old wiring from the homeowners insurance companies. Many will not write a policy if there is more than a certain percentage of knob and tube wiring still in use and several will not offer coverage unless it is all replaced.
