How to Know If Your Property Needs Wiring Repair
Regardless of the material of the wiring in your home or business, it will eventually need repairs. Due to the majority of the wiring being hidden, it is often not easy to know when there is a problem. There are several signs that you can look for to identify a wiring problem.
Signs your wiring needs to be repaired include:
- Frayed, damaged, and exposed wires and cables
- Buzzing, charred, or discolored outlets and switches
- Shocking switches and outlets
- Flicking, dimming, or non-working lights
- Circuit breakers trip regularly
- Burning smell
- Electrical inspection report
Wiring in Older Homes
Aluminum wiring has been discontinued since the 1970s. But if you have an older home, you may still have it running through your walls. If you think you have old aluminum wiring, then it is time to get it inspected to see if you need to get an upgrade.
Aluminum wiring tends to expand and contract, which causes arcing on the device that it is installed on and can potentially become a fire hazard. You may not notice because the sheetrock is not flammable. However, the paper that holds the sheetrock is flammable. Over time as the wiring expands, if you do not replace it, it can catch on fire.
