Do your breakers trip or fuses blow whenever you use the toaster and microwave at the same time?
What happens when you use a blow dryer and vacuum at the same time?
We can probably guess the answers to these questions. Half of the house loses power, and it’s not just isolated to area where you’re using the appliances. We see this all the time, especially in older homes and homes that have been renovated without updating the electrical system.
If breakers are tripping and fuses are blowing frequently, chances are that the wiring in the home is not adequate for today’s standards. You may have knob-and-tube wiring or even cloth-covered wiring, which is not only inefficient but it is a fire hazard that is not code compliant. You may actually be running the risk of negating your homeowner’s insurance policy if a fire is caused by wiring that doesn’t comply with current codes.
The wiring in your home is its nervous system. Everything, from your HVAC to your plumbing systems, uses electricity to operate properly and efficiently. These installations require a serious level of attention to detail, from adding wall outlets in rooms and in kitchens to installing the correct wiring and number of breakers.
