Have you recently purchased an older property in the Chesapeake area? Are you planning on remodeling an older home or commercial property? You may need to prepare for extensive electrical work, especially wiring updates depending on the age of the building you bought. Older wiring systems are dangerous, and if your property needs a wiring update, it is essential to choose a professional electrician with a solid track record of successful wiring updates.
Nipper Electric in Chesapeake is happy to provide wiring update services to our local residential and commercial property owners. Whether you’re renovating or building an addition, you may need to arrange a wiring update so that your property is safe and fully compliant with federal, state, and local electrical codes.
Why Are Wiring Updates Necessary?
Over the last several decades, electrical wiring technology has evolved tremendously. In the 1930s, many homes had knob and tube power systems. By the 1940s, residential electrical systems used primarily nonmetallic wiring. During the 1960s and 1970s, most residential electrical systems incorporated aluminum wiring. Today, professional electricians know that all of these wiring options are incredibly hazardous.
The electrical codes in place at the federal, state, and local levels exist to ensure the highest possible levels of safety for property owners. These codes include rules for the types of wires and configuration techniques electricians can use when wiring a structure. These codes can change over time, and wiring updates ensure a structure is compliant and safe for occupancy.
