Wiring & Rewiring

Electrical Wiring in Santa Clara

Electrical Rewiring Services in the Bay Area

The wiring in your house is a system of circuits, with each circuit having a specific purpose and a limited amount of electricity flowing through it. Each circuit is separated from the others by a breaker, which will shut off the flow of electricity to the circuit if it becomes overloaded (this is what happens when a lightbulb flashes when you turn on another light nearby). NRG Electric Inc. will help you rewire your house if necessary, making sure each circuit has a purpose and helping you add more circuits if necessary.

We also offer upgrades to the electrical panel and interior lighting as part of our electrical wiring services.

Commonly Asked Questions

What Are the Signs That My House Needs Rewiring?

Several signs can indicate that your house might need rewiring:

  1. Frequent Electrical Problems: If you're encountering frequent issues like tripped circuit breakers, blown fuses, or lights that flicker often, it could signal underlying wiring problems.

  2. Aging Infrastructure: Houses with original wiring from several decades ago might not meet current safety standards. Over time, older wiring types, such as knob and tube or aluminum wiring, can deteriorate, potentially creating fire hazards.

  3. Visible Damage: Look out for charred outlets, switches, or areas around the electrical panel. Discoloration or scorch marks indicate overheating, which is a serious safety concern.

  4. Unusual Smells: A persistent burning odor, especially near electrical outlets or switches, suggests wiring issues that require immediate attention to prevent potential fire hazards.

  5. Electrical Surges: If you frequently experience power surges or fluctuations, it could indicate wiring problems that need addressing.

  6. Warm or Noisy Outlets: Outlets that feel warm to the touch or emit buzzing or crackling sounds indicate potential electrical issues that merit investigation.

  7. Recurring Overloads: If your electrical system frequently overloads, leading to blown fuses or tripped breakers, it may suggest that your wiring is inadequate for handling modern appliances and devices.

  8. Aluminum Wiring Concerns: Homes with aluminum wiring, common in the 1960s and 1970s, are prone to corrosion and pose fire risks if not properly maintained or replaced.

Should you observe any of these signs, it's crucial to have a certified electrician inspect your wiring to determine if rewiring is necessary for safety purposes.

Is it necessary to upgrade the electrical panel when rewiring a house?

In some cases, upgrading the electrical panel is necessary when rewiring a house to ensure it can handle the increased electrical load. This is especially important if you are adding more circuits or electrical appliances.

Can I DIY electrical rewiring in my house?

Electrical rewiring is a complex and potentially dangerous task. It is highly recommended to hire a professional electrician for rewiring to ensure the work is done safely and up to code.

What are the benefits of adding more circuits during a rewiring project?

Adding more circuits during a rewiring project can improve the safety and efficiency of your electrical system, reduce the risk of overloading, and provide better distribution of power throughout your home.
