What is Whole-Home Rewiring?
A professional electrician will replace your home’s electrical wiring and, if needed, the whole wiring system. Whole-home rewiring refers to a professional service. Your electrician can use this time to install new outlets or add circuits so your home can supply the power you need.
Older electrical wiring can limit your power in your home, which can be annoying or even dangerous. Rewiring is done to update the wiring and reduce the potential for property damage and fires.

Common Problems that Require Whole-Home Wiring Services
Property owners can have problems with the electrical wiring in their old homes. House wiring services can help. Our electricians can fix these and other issues.
Overlapping is when a fixture holds a bulb with a higher wattage than the fixture. This can lead to overheating, which can cause damage to the wires and casing.
Modern energy demands often need to be met by outdated wiring. If your house is ancient, the electrician likely designed the electrical system to be reliable in its day. It is possible to have difficulty powering all your devices simultaneously.
Tripping Circuit Breakers
Modern appliances like hairdryers and refrigerators tend to overload older wiring. However, outdated wiring can sometimes short-circuit without the machine. Tripping breakers can still occur when a circuit is too complete.
Repeated trips or short circuits can kill an outlet, and the wires may melt or become disconnected from the outlet. Rewiring can fix the problem and get your outlets back in operation.
When the wiring corrodes or loosens, your lights will flicker. Flickering lights can be distracting, but they are also susceptible to overheating or catching fire.
Sings That Whole-Home Rewiring is Required
You may notice these signs that your wiring is outdated:
- Flickering light: If you turn on an appliance and see lights flashing in other areas of your house, it could be due to old wiring. Sometimes the wiring is not able to handle the electric load. This lowers the flow power in one part of your house to make room for another.
- Do you have outlets without power? If you turn on the dishwasher, does one part of your house turn off? If your system cannot handle the demands of your home’s power, there will likely be power outages or flipped breakers.
- Signs that your outlets are burning: Whether there are burn marks on the faceplates or a burning odor behind the walls, you need to address fire concerns immediately. These are one of the most dangerous side effects of older wiring and can cause extensive damage.
- High energy prices: While it may be harder to spot, poor wiring might be the reason for your rising electrical costs. Wiring can lead to over or underutilized areas.
