New Home Construction and Home Renovation Wiring, Etobicoke

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 Houses are becoming outdated, creating a need for renovation projects and newer homes being built to keep up.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.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are some signs that I need renovation wiring?

Outdated wiring is shown in time by constantly tripping breakers, flickering lights, or sparking/scorched outlets. These are signs that your wiring should be upgraded as soon as possible, as outdated wiring runs the risk of creating a house fire. Other signs that your home is due for electrical upgrades is if there are current two-pronged ungrounded outlets or if spaces such as your kitchen or bathroom lack Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets. Having these addressed will significantly increase the safety of your home.

What factors of living will renovation wiring affect?

Anything that requires electrical power to function will be affected. This includes lighting, kitchen appliances, heating/air conditioning, devices such as computers or televisions, Wi-Fi connection, and more. The more efficient your home’s wiring is, the more comfortably you and your family can live with peace of mind. It’s important to address outdated or faulty wiring, as well as unprotected wiring or wiring that is not properly secured.

How is pre-wiring beneficial to me?

Pre-wiring during home construction can save you money in the long-run since your wiring’s capacity will be prepared for advancing technology and any renovations you may want to make in the future.
