Signs Your Home Needs Wiring Upgrades

We understand that you might be reluctant to upgrade the wiring in your home. There are a number of signs that could indicate that your home needs panel upgrades or wiring upgrades. 

Breaker Issues

You’re blow drying your hair while your partner is making breakfast with the microwave and all the sudden, the power goes out. It can be very frustrating to lose power in the middle of tasks because you have too many devices overloaded on one circuit or your home’s wiring isn’t capable of handling two appliances being run at the same time. Chesterfield Service electricians can add more breakers to your home so you don’t trip breakers as often. 

Home has a Fuse Box

If your home still has a fuse box, this is an outdated piece of electrical equipment. Even though it might have worked well in the past, there are modern systems that are much better. Rely on our team to take a look at your fuse box, make recommendations about how to upgrade the system to make your electrical panels more reliable. 

Aluminum Wiring

Aluminum wiring is also an outdated electrical standard. This type of electrical work was common in older homes, but it can also lead to electrical issues. Let us take a look at your wiring and upgrade to a more modern and safe material. 

2 Prong Ungrounded Outlets

If you noticed that your outlets only have two prongs in them, you are probably frustrated that you cannot plug in some of your appliances. In addition, this represents an ungrounded outlet, which is a severe safety issue. Talk to our team to install energy-efficient electrical outlets that can offer surge protection. 

Missing GFCI

Missing GFCI buttons on rooms with moisture like bathrooms and kitchens can be another safety issue. Let’s swap out your old outlets with safer ones to avoid the risk of electrocution. 

Switch Out Switches

Have you always wanted a dimmer switch for your kitchen? Or maybe you find that you have an outlet that you’d rather have controlled by a switch. We can switch out light switches to your design to make your home more convenient. 

Change Bulbs

LED lightbulbs are just as bright as traditional light bulbs, but use much less energy. If you’re looking for ways to lower your energy consumption, talk to the electricians at Chesterfield Service. We can change your light bulbs to more energy efficient options to help save you on your utility bills. 

Whole House Surge Protectors

When there’s an energy surge at your home, you’ll receive no warning. Energy surges can fry expensive electronics like televisions, computers, and appliances. With a whole house surge protection system, all of these electronics will be protected from power surges.

Whole Home Generators

It used to be that when the power went out, you’d have to eat all the ice cream in the freezer to prevent it from spoiling. With a whole house generator, your freezer, heat, lights and all your appliances will stay running no matter how long the power is out for. Talk to Chesterfield Service about installing, maintaining, or repairing your whole house generators. 

Not Enough Power

If you noticed that your lights are a bit faint, have issues with your ceiling fan, or that your new appliances are not working as well as you expect them to, then you may not have enough power. Our team will take a look at your electrical system and make recommendations for how we can increase the power in your home. 

Popping Lightbulbs

Frequently popping light bulbs are a sign of arcing electricity or high voltage in your house. Arcing electricity is often caused by plugs not fitting snugly into outlets. If you have loose-fitting outlets, it’s time to get them replaced. Arcing electricity and high voltage are potential fire starters, so you want to consult with our electricians to find a solution. 

Burning Smells

If you notice a burning smell in your home, this is a serious concern. You need to reach out to a reliable electrician as quickly as possible. Oftentimes, the heat from a lightbulb that is under a lampshade can cause burns on the shade. This is a potential fire hazard. A good fix for this is to swap traditional light bulbs that produce heat with LED light bulbs. LED bulbs produce just as much light without using as much electricity, so they do not get hot. A 60w traditional bulb is just as bright as a 5w high efficiency bulb.  

If you’ve switched out your lightbulbs to modern LED bulbs, and you still notice burning smells, this could be a maintenance issue, or it could be an emergency repair problem. Older homes are more likely to have these issues, so if you have an older home. Many of these issues are caused by an outdated electrical panel or older wiring. Reach out to Chesterfield Service’s electrician team to learn if an electrical panel upgrade is right for your home.

If you’re in the market for an electric vehicle, you’ll need a charging station installed at your home to make sure you always have enough juice to take you where you need to go.
