Electrical wiring in residential and commercial properties eventually wears out, and as electrical components deteriorate, the risk of electrical fires, electrocution injuries, and property damage increases. One of the first parts of any structure’s electrical system to experience wear-and-tear is the wiring. Most electrical wires feature sturdy casing, but eventually repeated use will degrade them to the point of failure.
If you recently purchased an older property or have started noticing more tripped breakers and other electrical issues in your home or business property, it is probably a good idea to schedule a wiring update from a reliable and experienced electrician as soon as possible. Identifying wiring issues as early as possible helps to reduce the chances of experiencing an electrical fire or worse. Old wiring may seem fine at first, but more often than not these systems have serious electrical vulnerabilities and one sudden change can cause a seriously dangerous problem.
What Is a Wiring Update?
The United States is home to a wide variety of different houses, and the Virginia area is one of the oldest in the country. It’s not uncommon to pass through a neighborhood and see homes from each of the last ten decades on the same street. As time has gone on, residential electrical wiring practices and materials have evolved. In the 1930s, homes received power through knob and tube systems. In the 1940s, nonmetallic wiring became the standard. In the 1960s and 1970s, residential electrical wiring adopted aluminum wire, and all of these wiring types are now considered hazardous.
If you own an older property in the Virginia Beach area, you might need a wiring update to get the building fully up to code and prevent electrical hazards like fires and electrocutions.
