Studies have shown that since the 1950s electrical use has increased by over 400 percent. This shouldn’t come as a surprise because we didn’t have computers or smartphones to power in those days, and the appliances that were around like refrigerators have grown in their sophistication. So, if your energy demands have continued to expand, have you made the necessary adjustments in your home or business to make sure that what’s behind the walls can deliver the electricity you need?
The type of cable used to wire homes and businesses has made dramatic changes since the 1950s as well. Electrical safety codes change every four years, which only adds to the urgency of the situation. Chances are if you moved in to an older commercial or residential building that’s been around for a long time, you are overdue for a rewire. Even if you built your commercial or residential building from scratch, if it’s been a couple of decades since you thought about the wiring, you might benefit from a rewire.
Wiring, over time, eventually starts to show visible signs of degradation. Whether it’s been damaged in a rodent infestation, exposure to water, overheating or something else, rewiring your home or business decreases the risk of fire and other hazards associated with damaged electrical systems. The key is to a successful and safe rewire begins with finding the right electricians for the job.
Andee's Electric LLC has been proud to provide both commercial and residential rewiring services to homes and businesses in the area. Outdated and damaged wiring is a huge hazard and it is always better to be safe and replace the whole than be sorry.

Aluminum and Knob and Tube Wiring Needs to Go
Aluminum wiring was the popular choice for homes and businesses built in the 1970s. Unfortunately, there are a lot of problems associated with aluminum wires. The main problem with aluminum wiring is that it is not the best conductor of electricity. So, if your home or business still relies on aluminum wiring, the probability that it’s working overtime to get your appliances the power they need to function is very high. This generates excess heat and makes electrical fires a very real possibility.
As for knob and tube wiring, this hasn’t been used much since the 1950s but there are a handful of homes and businesses that have fallen through the cracks. Given how obsolete these types of wires are, if you still rely on them, it is imperative that you give Andee's Electric LLC a call as soon as possible to arrange a rewire.

WHY DOES REWIRING MATTER?
There are a few hugely important reasons why rewiring is a necessary step for homeowners and business owners alike.
The first is that, just like any other part of your home or business, electrical wiring has a lifespan. It's not surprising, given that it sees near constant use, day in and day out, but because the wiring is hidden away it's easy to forget that it's something that needs to be replaced periodically. When you replace your wiring, you prevent damage ranging from blown fuses to devastating electrical fires.
Another major reason to replace your wiring is because older, outdated systems were not built to handle the stress modern appliances place on them. If your property has wiring that was installed in previous decades, give Andee's Electric LLC a call today. One of our licensed electricians can inspect your system and determine whether or not it is still functional, or if it poses a risk and needs to be updated.
BOOST PROPERTY VALUE WITH NEW WIRING
Old wiring leads to an inefficient electrical system, which in turn reduces the value of your property. By installing new, more efficient wiring, not only will the value of your property go up, but it is possible your insurance premiums will go down, because your system is no longer viewed as risky by insurance companies.
Whether you're thinking about putting your property on the market, or you simply want a way to increase its value, Andee's Electric LLC can help. Give us a call today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced electricians today!
