There is nothing more serious to your home and family's safety than faulty wiring! Remember that certain villages and towns in our area require you have a licensed electrician perform wiring upgrades, the homeowner can not. We offer an unsurpassed warranty on service upgrades which can be transferred to a new homeowner.
Part of the responsibility of being a homeowner is keeping up with necessary upgrades to your home. Don’t mistake these for superficial upgrades such as granite countertops or hardwood flooring. These upgrades are necessary for reasons that include your safety, your family’s safety and even your ability to obtain homeowner insurance, which is necessary if you hold a mortgage as well as for your peace of mind. One of the most important upgrades to consider as a homeowner is your electrical wiring. At Albrite Electric, we encourage homeowners in and around Binghamton, NY to have your electrical wiring checked regularly, and to have it upgraded when necessary.
Why You Need to Consider an Upgrade
Why does Albrite Electric recommend you look into upgrading your electrical wiring? The answer is simple; your family’s safety is important. Faulty wiring and old wiring can cause significant damage to your home. For example, if your home is a bit older and was built with aluminum or knob and tube wiring, you’ll want to upgrade.
You might have heard that knob and tube wiring is actually a cut above today’s wiring standards, you’re not entirely mistaken. When it is correctly installed, it is better-quality. However, oftentimes it’s not and it does tend to breakdown after decades of use. One of the biggest concerns surrounding this older wiring is the fact that it does not consist of a ground conductor. This means switches using neutral wiring are incapable of turning off the current when turning off the circuit.
The cost of repairs needed from this type of issue is often astronomical. Before your home requires a full rewiring, have Albrite Electric take a look at your wiring. You might be able to have a partial rewiring done to ensure your home is safer than ever.
How Upgrades Affect Your Homeowners Insurance Policy
Another consideration you must make when it comes to an electrical wiring upgrade is your homeowner’s insurance policy. Many Binghamton insurance agencies will refuse to issue policies to homeowners living in houses with an excessive amount of knob and tube wiring. Other Binghamton, NY insurance companies may even refuse to issue homeowners a policy unless the entire wiring system is replaced to completely eliminate knob and tube wiring.
