Take a moment to picture your daily routine. From the moment you get up until the second you fall asleep, almost everything you do requires electricity in some way or another. From the coffee maker that brews the stuff that keeps you moving, to the computer you rely on to do your job, electricity is with you every step of the way.
Given how central electricity is to your day, making sure it gets to where it needs to be is essential. With Preferred Electric's rewiring services, you can be confident that your system will always be functioning at a satisfactory level. Our team is fully licensed and bonded, meaning we are able to handle rewiring projects of all sizes safely and with ease.
Why Does Rewiring Matter?
There are a few hugely important reasons why rewiring is a necessary step for homeowners and business owners alike.
The first is that, just like any other part of your home or business, electrical wiring has a lifespan. It's not surprising, given that it sees near constant use, day in and day out, but because the wiring is hidden away it's easy to forget that it's something that needs to be replaced periodically. When you replace your wiring, you prevent damage ranging from blown fuses to devastating electrical fires.
Another major reason to replace your wiring is because older, outdated systems were not built to handle the stress modern appliances place on them. If your property has wiring that was installed in previous decades, give Preferred Electric a call today. One of our licensed electricians can inspect your system and determine whether or not it is still functional, or if it poses a risk and needs to be updated.
There are few brands of electrical panels that we still find in homes today that are a significant fire hazard. One of these panels is called Federal Pacific. These panels pose a latent threat and could be a hazard. The circuit breakers may fail to trip in the case of an overload or short-circuit. A circuit breaker that fails to trip could cause a fire or personal injury. These panels appear to work perfectly during normal operation allowing electricity to flow without any problems or symptoms. The concern surrounds those instances when a circuit is overloaded.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) did conduct product testing of these FPE breakers and found that their failure rates were significant. Decades of reports support the dangers of these panel more than any other brand ever produced. Stories of electrical panels spontaneously busting into flames, breaker not tripping and posing risk of electrocution, are found all over the internet. At Preferred Electric we take these dangers very seriously and will advise you on the best way to replace this brand of panel. Because of the high risk to property and human life we will not service this brand of panel, as a commitment to our high standard for safety and quality.
Boost Property Value with New Wiring
Old wiring leads to an inefficient electrical system, which in turn reduces the value of your property. By installing new, more efficient wiring, not only will the value of your property go up, but it is possible your insurance premiums will go down, because your system is no longer viewed as risky by insurance companies.
Whether you're thinking about putting your property on the market, or you simply want a way to increase its value, Preferred Electric can help. Give us a call today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced electricians today!
