​Common Electrical Issues in Old Homes

There are plenty of old homes here on Long Island. The architectural features of old homes make them very charming. However, old homes may have an old electrical system to match. An outdated electrical system is bound to have inefficiencies.  Below are the most common electrical issues associated with old homes. 
Not Enough Power
Electrical systems that were designed 30 years ago were not intended to handle the amount of power we use today. If you have an old electrical system, it might not supply your home with enough power for your appliances and electronics. You may need an electrical panel upgrade. 
Old Wiring
Wires are not built to last forever. As the years go by, wires lose their insulating material. This can lead to an electrical fire in your home. To prevent this from happening, have your home rewired. 
Not Up To Code
Overtime, electrical codes change. If your electrical system was installed years and years ago, it is probably not up to code. An electrical inspection from TFC Electric can ensure that your home’s electrical system meets or exceeds all national and local electrical codes. 
If you need any assistance with your electrical system, turn to TFC Electric. Our technicians respectively do the job with care, to ensure our customers are satisfied with the work performed. Call 631-589-2800 to schedule an appointment.
