When is Whole-Home Rewiring Necessary?
Does your home feature a fuse box? Does it still have knob-and-tube or aluminum wiring? Many older homes, particularly those built before the 1960s, still have their original wiring and electrical systems in place. But in most cases this isn’t a cause for concern, nor is it a code violation. If your home has been well-maintained throughout the years and you haven’t experienced any problems with your electrical system, you likely won’t need to upgrade your wiring.
However, if you are planning to install newer appliances or equipment (such as tankless water heaters, electric vehicle charging stations, or other high-efficiency equipment), you will need to have your circuits and wiring inspected, and an upgrade to your electrical system may be in order.
Older properties are often inadequately equipped to handle the electrical demands of our modern age. With many homeowners relying on washing machines, dishwashers, air conditioners, furnaces, and other power-hungry appliances for daily convenience and comfort, those living in older properties will need to begin considering electrical upgrades.
This is especially important if you are noticing persistent problems with your electrical system, including circuit breakers that are frequently tripping, burned outlets (or burning smells coming from them), and lights that constantly dim/flicker when other appliances or devices kick on.
