Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What will cause my home’s electrical load to increase?
Is silver or silver alloy wiring feasible for home wiring?
Silver or silver alloy wiring is still fairly new as of 2021, and although it has a higher conductivity than copper and is currently used for industrial purposes, it’s not so readily available on the market for home electrical wiring due to its high cost and impracticality. Your best bet is therefore copper wiring, as it is sturdy, efficient, and more affordable.
Is it better to pre-wire than to get renovation wiring later on?
The earlier you plan during new construction, the more beneficial it tends to be. Before the walls go up, it’s convenient to have up-to-date wiring installed then, rather than having to take the walls down again later solely to upgrade your wiring. New construction pre-wiring saves you the hassle and money in the long-run, as it means be prepared for the future and anticipating technological changes.
