Wiring Upgrades
One of the biggest issues facing homes across Suffolk County is a lack of modern wiring. The fact is that in this day and age, with advancements having been made in wiring materials and technology, certain types of wiring that might have been popular years ago, are simply no longer considered to be safe or efficient.

From old-style aluminum wiring to others, some of the most common types of wiring include:
Knob and Tube Wiring – This type of wiring setup is common in older homes and is considered to be highly unsafe as often, electrical wiring is left exposed. With such a setup, wiring is wrapped around knobs, that run from the electrical panel throughout the home. This system is susceptible to outages, and blowouts, and it is best to replace it as soon as possible.

Cloth Covered Wiring – One of the oldest types of wiring, cloth-covered wiring was highly affordable and considered to be efficient during the 1960s. however, when compared to modern wiring this is definitely not the case, as such wiring is shown to erode quite a bit and often leaves wiring exposed and the presence of cloth poses a huge fire hazard.

In addition to wiring, there are a number of other items that must be upgraded as well, including things like panels, fuses, fuse boxes, and more. For more information on upgrading your home’s electrical systems, be sure to contact us today.
