Old & Faulty Wiring Removal

Baton Rouge Old Wiring

No part of your electrical system is as important as your wiring, and keeping your wiring in great condition is the only way to keep your electrical system safe, efficient, and reliable. If your home's wiring is old and/or faulty, it can cause a wide range of problems with your home's electrical system. Not only will it cause frustrating power losses and problems with circuits, but it can become extremely dangerous, and it may even lead to something as serious as a house fire.

At MK Electric Man, our Baton Rouge electricians can inspect your home's wiring and let you know if it needs to be removed and replaced. We have extensive experience working with all types of wiring, and we can always guarantee your complete satisfaction with the services that we provide.

Removal and Replacement of Outdated Wiring

If you live in an older house and haven't replaced the wiring, chances are it needs to be done. Homes built even as recently as the 1980s may not be up to today's modern standards. With so many more devices and appliances being regularly used than ever before, the electrical needs of most homes have grown tremendously even in the last ten years.

Older wiring won't be able to handle the amount of electricity that is used in modern homes, and it can deteriorate until it becomes a problem. You'll start notice nuisances like blown fuses, or you may encounter dangerous electrical wiring. Plus, if you're considering putting your house on the market, older wiring may not pass inspections.

Old or Faulty Wiring Warning Signs

If you aren't sure whether you need rewiring services, here are a few things to look out for that could indicate you do:

  • Your wiring appears to be cracked, deteriorated, or falling apart.
  • Your wiring is black. Newer electrical wiring uses PVC materials and is usually white or gray.
  • If you don't have an outlet for every six to eight feet of wall in your home, you're home isn't properly wired.
  • If you're experiencing blown circuit breakers or fuses often, you need to have your wiring looked at.
