If you’re renovating an older home or remodeling your current home, it’s always a worthwhile investment to upgrade your electrical system to coincide with safety standards and recommended guidelines. Our remodeling projects have helped countless property owners increase their resale value, and the following are some of the most common electrical upgrades that we conduct during renovation projects:
Many older homes have outdated outlets that require proper ground wiring, and these days it’s important to upgrade two-prong outlets during remodeling projects for safety purposes. Some of the rooms throughout your home that may need an outlet upgrade include:
- Home offices
- Children’s rooms
- Patios, decks and outdoor spaces
We all have handheld devices, which is why charging stations are becoming increasingly popular amongst electrical system renovations. What’s great about charging stations is that they’ll help you keep your digital devices in one part of your home as opposed to having them scattered around multiple rooms.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) are essential for any room in your home, because these safety devices will automatically shut off when any moisture is detected within the outlet. GFCIs are inexpensive ways for homeowners to avoid fires and electrical shocks, and we’ll help you better understand your area’s building codes and protocols while we install your new GFCIs.
Electrical Panel Update
Many homes require an upgraded electrical panel so that their electrical system can handle increased demands associated with a remodeling project’s new appliances and electronics. Replacing your breaker box and electrical panel is always a worthy investment to ensure that your home is surge-free and safe for decades to come.
Electrical Wiring Updates
Outdated electrical wiring can pose many safety hazards due to today’s advanced household technology, which is why remodeling projects are a good time to consider rewiring your home.
Many people today want to develop the perfect ambience within each room through state-of-the-art light fixtures, including sensor lighting, dimmer switches and 3-way panel sliders. We’ll help you decide which light switches and lighting options are best for your unique needs.
