If you are living in a home that’s more than 40 years old, you should consider having your electrical wiring updated. Homes built before the last few decades used systems that are now known to be safety hazards. You likely had a home inspection before you moved in and might have even been told that you should consider having the wiring replaced. If you’ve been putting it off or are just now starting to have issues with your electrical wiring, you need to call our electrical service in Gilroy right away. Here are three great reasons to have the electrical wiring in your home updated:
- It’s safer. If your home has an electrical system that uses aluminum wires, ungrounded-nonmetallic cables, or knob and tube wires, these systems are known to pose a safety hazard and could spark an electrical fire. You don’t want to expose yourself to this risk.
- It could save you money in the long run. Potential fire damage notwithstanding, newer electrical systems can actually save you money on your monthly electrical bill because they use the electricity more efficiently, thus using less.
- It can make your home more comfortable. If your home is using an older electrical system, you probably have a shortage of outlets, too. Our electrical services in Gilroy can install new electrical outlets as well as update the wiring, so you are more comfortable in your home and aren’t relying on extension cords to power your devices.
