Looks can be deceiving. Consider a dog, for example. It might look friendly, but it still could bite you. The same is true for your electrical system. Everything might look fine on the outside, but danger could be lurking in the wiring behind your walls.
Thankfully, the team at Boiling Springs Heating & Air is here to help you expose the truth. And, if our certified electricians find your electrical system is in poor condition, you can count on our upgrade services to prevent hazards from gnawing at your home’s safety—for good.
Security is essential in any home. However, nothing chews away at the safety of your home quicker than an electrical hazard.
The first step in protecting your home from danger is to be a good watchdog. Luckily, you can sniff out these telltale signs that indicate an electrical issue is on the horizon:
Upgrading your electrical system puts a muzzle on hazards. This is especially important in the following instances:
Older systems are dangerous. Knob-and-tube wiring is a big no-no. This is commonly found in older homes and is extremely dangerous. That’s because, as this system ages, it will wear down at the connection points due to current consistently running through it. So, rewiring instantly unleashes increased safety.
Your home can’t sustain your power needs. Your electrical panel is the heart of your home and the point of distribution for all of your electrical circuits. The circuit breakers will immediately cut off your home’s electricity in the event of excess power usage. Updating your circuit breaker is sure to get your tail wagging again because it means you’ll be protected from fire and other disasters that can occur when your system is on overload.
Adding a new appliance to your home. When you add new electrical appliances and circuits to your home, you increase your power demand. That’s because more appliances require more electricity for efficient operation. However, you can add additional grounded outlets, upgrade your electrical panel with higher amperage or undergo a total home rewiring to meet your power demands.
