The heart and brain of your home’s electrical system is the electrical control panel. As the connection to the utility power line, it distributes current to each circuit that runs throughout a house. The panel also houses circuit breakers, the safety devices that protect circuits from overloading and other dangers.
If you suspect your older home’s electrical system is not up to code, it may be time for an electrical wiring upgrade. Unfortunately, upgrades are labor intensive and costly because wires are located behind walls, and they need to be accessed one way or another. The project may take from 5 days to 2 weeks with a bill of several thousand dollars. So, if your home will be undergoing extensive remodeling, it makes sense to have an electrical wiring upgrade done simultaneously to save time and money. Let’s discuss the benefits.
