Is it Time to Update Your Electrical System

Is it Time to Update Your Electrical System?

Is your Lakeland, Kissimmee, or Clermont home a house that was built before 1990? If so, chances are that your electrical control panel and wiring are not made for the electrical demands of the 21st century. By continuing to use newer appliances, air conditioners, and electronics, you are exceeding the amount of electricity that your electrical system was intended to use; the result could be an electrical hazard.

Why Upgrade Your Electrical System?

The older your home, the more urgent the need to upgrade your electrical system. If you live in a home built in the 1920s or 1930s you are living in a house that was built at a time when a home that was wired for electricity had been around for less than a hundred years. Wiring and the demands on the wiring have changed quite a bit since then. Houses were designed to run at lower amperages, and air conditioners were not made for home use yet (imagine the heat in Florida).  You may even have a fuse box in your older home which is as obsolete as gaslighting.  Your wiring may have become loose over the years and can be a hazard in and of itself. There is also a strong possibility if your home was built before 1980, it may not be grounded, which means there is an increased chance of damage from a lightning strike or power surge. If you want to keep your home safe from electrical fires and keep family members from getting shocked by old exposed wiring, then contact Dynamic R.I.C. Electric to come out and inspect your home.

Some Additional Signs Your Electrical System Needs Upgrading.

You don’t have to live in an early 20th century to encounter problems with your electrical system. Here are some additional signs that point to your home’s electrical system needing an upgrade.

  • The circuit breaker trips or if fuses blow regularly.
  • The lights dim when you use a major appliance.
  • You have a limited number of outlets to plug things into, and they are not three-pronged.
  • You smell something burning when you are using more than one appliance.
