Older homes have a unique charm, but they often come with electrical challenges due to outdated wiring and systems. Here are some common electrical problems in older homes and how to address them:
Knob and Tube Wiring: Replace outdated knob and tube wiring with modern, safer options to meet current electrical standards.
Outdated Electrical Panels: Upgrade your electrical panel to accommodate modern electrical demands and improve safety.
Inadequate Outlets: Older homes may have fewer outlets than necessary. Adding outlets can improve convenience and safety.
Overloaded Circuits: If you frequently experience tripped circuits, consider redistributing loads or adding dedicated circuits.
