Enhance Your Efficiency with New Circuit Installation

Whether you’re in the process of a home renovation or planning to build a new home, keeping your electrical wiring system top of mind is essential. Although the wires will be hidden behind walls and floors, your wiring will impact your home's efficiency and overall comfort every day. Whatever your project may be, the electricians at Bradley Mechanical will ensure your electrical wiring system and services are correctly installed and running at the highest standards.

Common Signs Your Home Needs Rewiring

Although electrical wiring is built to last, the way in which we use electricity and build homes has changed and evolved tremendously over the last several decades. Old wiring often fails to support our current demands, leaving you in a difficult or uncomfortable position. If you experience any of the following, it’s probably time to give Bradley Mechanical a call to explore your new circuit install options:

  • Flickering lights. One of the most common causes of flickering lights isn’t an outdated electrical system – it’s actually old lightbulbs. However, if you’ve recently installed new lightbulbs or frequently find your lighting flickers, the problem likely extends to your wiring.
  • Tripped circuit breaker. Tripping your circuit occasionally isn’t the biggest cause for concern. However, suppose it’s frequently happening, and you notice it when using your everyday appliances and electronics, such as your toaster oven or hair dryer. In that case, it’s a sign your circuit is overwhelmed and may need upgrading.
  • Burning scent. A burning smell is never a good sign. This could be due to faulty wiring, creating sparks that burn your outlets or the inner workings of your wall.
  • Discolored or buzzing outlets. If you find dark burn marks on your outlets or switches, it’s a sign of faulty wiring and a severe fire hazard. Don’t hesitate to call Bradley Mechanical to get these areas assessed right away.

Professional Circuit Install in New Renovations

Your home's electrical system is complex and plays a significant role in keeping you comfortable and safe. This is why new circuit installations and upgrades should always be left to the professionals. Electrical circuit systems contain numerous safety features to prevent damage to your home. However, if they're installed incorrectly and rely on faulty wiring, it could lead to a blown breaker panel or more serious and dangerous issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does a house need to be rewired?

When we see a home still working off an electrical system older than our business has been around (50 years!), we highly recommend upgrading or rewiring the entire system. This is because an electrical system that’s older than 50 years was never built to provide power to the number of modern electronics and appliances we use today. From our large refrigerators to our multiple computers and televisions to our washer and dryer system – the standard home uses up more energy on a daily compared to what was used and expected decades ago.

How much will it cost to rewire a house?

It depends on the size of the home, the state of the current electrical wiring system, and the labor required. For a quote on your home or business, call us, and we’ll help you out.

Will the rewire increase the value and salability of my house?

Yes. Rewiring your home can increase the property’s market value. However, it can be an expensive undertaking and, depending on the state of your electrical system, may not be necessary. The best way to determine whether or not to rewire your home is by calling a professional electrician to do an assessment.
