House Rewire

 



Many years ago, houses were wired with a 2-wire system, which means a hot and a neutral wire with no ground.  A ground is important because it notifies the fuse or breaker, whichever you have, to shut off if it detects a short in the circuit and a ground also helps trip any circuit on a power surge.  Also, adding a ground in your home wiring system protects computers, televisions, and any other appliances.  Wires also used to be insulated with cloth which over a period of time deteriorates and leaves your wires exposed to the touch which can give you quite a shock.  Also, wires with a worn cloth cover can result in a short or fire.

 

When do you know when it's time to replace old wiring?  Well, there are some tell-tale signs like sparks coming from the switches or receptacles.  You'll also notice that receptacles stop working.  Once you pull the receptacles out of the wall, you see the wire that is currently installed in the house.

 

The extent of the rewire is determined by physically inspecting the wires coming out of the panel.  Also, we inspect the wire that are run through open areas such as attics or underneath floors.

 

A total rewire involves taking out every old and damaged wire and replacing it with wire that meets your particular city's requirements.

 

The advantages of rewiring your home:

 

  • Gaining a well-grounded electrical system coming from your panel

  • Relocating your circuits according to your home's current demands such as for any extra kitchen appliance

  • Ability to dedicate circuits for computer, refrigerators, microwaves, etc.  A dedicated circuit is important when an appliance is in high demand and should not be shared with another appliance.


Pacific Gold Electric is highly experienced and has conducted numerous rewire projects in the Los Angeles area.
