Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What kind of wiring is best for my home?
How do I know if my current electrical capacity is enough?
You can hire a licensed electrician to have a load calculation done on your home, which will determine whether your electrical service is enough to support your current lifestyle. Signs that you’re going over capacity show in flickering lights and tripping breakers, which can cause the power to go out in certain rooms. Another sign that you may need to increase your electrical service is if you find yourself needing to use power strips to support all of your devices. This is a sign that you’re using more than the home was built for, as electrical outlets tend to be mapped out according to what each room can support.
What are other benefits of future-proofing my wiring?
It’s better to plan sooner than later, so considering your pre-wiring earlier on allows you to save the hassle and money on labour. With greater flexibility, you’ll find ease in transitioning your home into a smart home. Having modern wiring will also increase the re-sale value of your home should you ever choose to sell it.
