  • No flickering lights
  • No short circuits or overloads
  • Better heating and cooling with a newly wired thermostat
  • No risk of electric shock

How Long Does Electrical Wiring Last?

Home wiring can last between 50 and 70 years, but only if it was correctly installed. If the wiring wasn’t professionally done or DIY modifications were made, rewiring could be needed much sooner.

If your home is pre-1965, it may have been built with a 60-amp circuit panel. Though sufficient then, 60 amps can be a fire hazard today, with homeowners demanding constant power for computers, smart TVs, device chargers, and a kitchen full of appliances. Homes built later may have enough amps but will need a few upgrades and repairs to worn fixtures and wiring.

Make sure you get the power you need with rewiring from Roby Services. Call (828) 201-2184 or contact us online for service!

Local Code Requirements for Wiring

If your home’s or business’s wiring hasn’t been updated lately, it may not be compliant with local electrical codes. These rules protect public safety and electrical efficiency. According to the National Electric Code, ground fault circuit interrupters must be in every kitchen and bathroom, and smoke detectors must be in and outside of every bedroom and on every floor.

Wiring and Rewiring FAQs

Other than being aware of how old your home is and whether it’s ever been updated, there’s no easy way you can tell if your wiring is safe. Signs like the breakers frequently tripping are a good indication of electrical problems, and electricians have equipment that can test your wiring for you.

You can stay in your house during a rewire, but be prepared for some temporary chaos. Your electrical wiring runs through your walls and under the flooring, so electricians will need to access these areas. If you’re renovating your home, schedule plumbing and HVAC work at the same time, or at least before the walls and floors are repaired.
