Are You in Need of a Whole House Rewire?
One of the responsibilities that comes with being a Fallbrook homeowner is making sure that your house is safe, above all else. Comfort, appearance, nothing else matters if your household is not a risk-free one. Your electrical wiring plays the biggest role in the condition of your home, as far as safety concerns go.
In many cases, the best step to take is a complete house rewiring. While this is especially common in older homes, in some cases the original work may have been shoddy. So even if your home is newer, you should watch for some telltale signs of possibly needing to replace the current wiring.
Red flags to Watch For
Although it is always safer to err on the side of caution and call in a professional Fallbrook electrician for an evaluation, here are some signs you need a whole house rewire:
Too many homeowners make the mistake of thinking that they can address a burning smell by simply disconnecting the power to whatever seems to be causing the problem. While cutting the power is an important step, the next one had better be to call on an expert to inspect the wiring. You could have a smoldering wire behind your walls that erupts into a fire, unless dealt with.
Flickering, dimming, buzzing, sizzling – these are all telltale signs you need a professional inspection. Do not just write it off as something old houses do. This happens for a variety of reasons, all of which mean you need a pro to handle the situation, in a prompt and professional manner.
Blown fuses or tripped breakers are an easy DIY fix. However, if this is a common occurrence, it is time to call an electrician. This means the power is too much for your current wiring and eventually something much more serious than just the tripped breaker or blown fuse will be the result of this overload.
