With families growing and technology advancing at a rapid pace, the demand for electrical power has increased. Houses are becoming outdated, creating a need for renovation projects and newer homes being built to keep up. Renovation wiring or pre-wiring your home to accommodate the future not only boosts the value of your home, but can enhance your lifestyle and ensure that you and your family can live comfortably without worry. During new construction, consideration towards up-to-date wiring should be at the forefront before the walls go up, and when renovating, having the walls down is the perfect opportunity to make electrical wiring upgrades. Modernizing your wiring during the process can save you money on labour.
Construction and renovation can be an arduous process, and working with electrical wiring can create additional projects. This is why hiring a professional is important to get the job done. The Canadian Home Builders’ Association states that building codes are constantly updated. A licensed electrician is trained to be up-to-date with the latest regulations and can offer you expert advice during the process. Additionally, working with a licensed electrical contractor can be beneficial as they can ensure that your system is flexible and can easily adapt to more advanced technologies. Since working with wiring can be complicated and even dangerous (with thousands of house fires caused by faulty wiring), it is highly recommended to hire a professional.
During electrical upgrades, a licensed electrician will be able to figure out how much power is needed for each room, how many outlets are necessary, and the draw of any lighting fixtures you may want installed. Telecommunications in the modern world have never been more important than they are now, so particular attention in renovation wiring or pre-wiring should be paid to television, internet, telephone, and network wiring. Different kinds of wiring include CAT3 telephone wires, CAT5 (category five) wiring, CAT6 wiring, or fiber optics.
