Electrical wiring is key to keep lights on and outlets working in your San Diego area home. If your wiring is damaged or outdated, our electricians can help!

Readily available electrical power is truly a modern marvel. For over a hundred years, the power that electricity provides has been lighting our homes and powering our appliances. The technology has changed a lot over that time and electrical technology has gotten safer and more efficient.

However, if your San Diego, CA home has older electrical components and wiring, you could be at risk. Older homes were not designed to be able to power the large loads that are common today and they were often wired with materials that have fallen out of use. As a result, many homeowners are opting to have their homes rewired to remove the threat that old wiring can pose. At Point Loma Electric and Plumbing, we specialize in mitigating the threats that older wiring poses to your home and can work to protect you and your family from the dangers of old wiring.

Even with the best wiring, if your electrical panel is out of date, you could still be holding your electrical system back. Work with our licensed electricians for all your panel upgrade needs.

For peace of mind, the best option to remove the risk of outdated wiring is to have the professionals at Point Loma Electric and Plumbing rewire your whole home or large portions of it. Whole-home rewiring can be a fairly involved process and is usually done during an extensive remodel or total rehabilitation of an old property.

Aluminum Wire Remediation

Depending on the age of your home, it might be wired with aluminum wiring. While aluminum wiring is a perfectly acceptable conductor and is still used in many applications, it does present some hazards that make it incompatible with newer wiring methods. Aluminum wiring doesn’t necessarily need to be replaced, however, the biggest concern with this material is where the connections are made. The most expedient option to remove the risks that come with aluminum wiring is to have our electricians perform an aluminum wire remediation.

During remediation, electricians will use special connectors, often made of copper, to upgrade the portions of your home’s wiring that hook into appliances and fixtures. By repairing or upgrading these connections, you can trust that you have better connectivity throughout your home.

Having the experts at Point Loma Electric and Plumbing perform remediation will save you the cost of having to rewire your entire home and also prevent the risk of a property-damaging fire.
