During construction for new homes, wiring is often left as one of the projects to be considered last. However, that should never be a sign to overlook the process or skimp on the materials. In the modern world, having up-to-date wiring is incredibly important. Especially with families growing and technology advancing at an accelerated speed, ensuring that your wiring is able to get electricity safely and securely to your devices has never been more crucial. If you plan on doing a home renovation, it’s an even better time to get renovation wiring done. For this process, since building codes are often upgraded, it’s recommended to hire a licensed electrical contractor to do the job. Having a licensed electrician do the work can turn this complicated process into a job that you can rest assured will be done properly and professionally.
Many upgrades are affected by the sufficiency of wiring. This includes lighting upgrades and additional outlet installation. The most common lighting upgrade requested is pot lights or recessed lighting. These energy efficient lights help to save money by requiring less electricity to run, especially when paired with LED bulbs, which burn brighter and cooler. Since installation requires working with wiring (sometimes with the additional job of a wiring upgrade), homeowners more often than not hire a licensed electrical contractor to help.
For additional outlet installation, a licensed electrician will be able to determine the additional demand or electrical load that will be added to ensure that your electrical service will be able to handle it (with the possibility of a service/panel upgrade to increase your home’s capacity). They can also help with mapping out where these newer outlets should be installed, as well as whether there is a need for more Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) to be installed in rooms such as the bathroom or kitchen.
