Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How do I know whether my wiring needs to be upgraded?
Do I need to upgrade wiring for new lighting?
Having energy efficient lighting installed can save you money. This can include pot lights (also called recessed lighting), which will require working with wiring during installation. It’s recommended during the process to also upgrade your wiring, as modern wiring will allow modern lighting to run safely and efficiently.
How do I begin with adding more outlets?
Before having more outlets added, a licensed electrician should first determine that your home has enough capacity. During renovations is a great time to have additional outlets installed, since you can also bundle that with a possible service/panel upgrade if needed. A licensed electrician can also install Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI), which is vital for rooms where appliances are used near water, such as the bathroom or in kitchens.
