​Signs You Need To Rewire Your House

People rarely spend their days thinking about their home’s electrical system. You flip a light switch and expect it to work. However, homeowners will give some thought to the electrical system when it isn’t functioning properly. Don’t let it get to that point. Below are some signs that your house needs new electrical wiring.

Tell-Tale Signs You Need New Wiring:
  • Blown fuses
  • Tripped breakers
  • Dim lights
  • Flickering lights
  • Discolored switch plates
  • Outlets that are warm to the touch
  • Buzzing
  • Burning smell
  • Unstable outlets
  • Damaged insulation
Scenarios Where New Electrical Wiring is Needed:
