Your home’s wiring system isn’t built to last forever, and the older it gets, the more repairs and hazards you’ll have to worry about. Moreover, an outdated electrical system also puts your costly electrical devices and appliances at risk!

If you’re planning to give your home an upgrade, start with your wiring and electrical system! What most homeowners don’t realize is that small electrical upgrades can make a huge difference.

New Outlets and Switches

If you’re living in a home that’s 20 or 30 years old, it’s likely equipped with outdated outlets—like two-pronged outlets—that are not only outdated, but unsafe to the point where they pose risk of an electrical fire. Plus, these outlets probably struggle to meet the needs of your modern equipment, resulting in frequent power loss.

Outlets that are hot, have old wiring behind them, or appear damaged, need to be replaced with upgraded outlets that meet electrical code—like Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets. GFCIs prevent electrical shock by automatically turning off the power supply if they detect an imbalance in the electrical current.

Electrical Panel Upgrade

An electrical panel is an important aspect of your home’s electrical system as it distributes your electrical load to each of your essential appliances. An outdated electrical panel is just as bad as old wiring because its inconsistent performance can put you at risk of fire.

Updating your home’s electrical panel can also help you save money on electrical bills. At Integrity Electrical Services, we can provide you with an electrical panel upgrade that ensures seamless power supply to all your devices.

New Surge Protectors

Power surges not only hike your electricity bill but they can also damage your appliances and outlets, leaving you with hefty replacements. Short circuits, sudden power outages and electrical malfunctions are all common causes of power surges.

Updating—or installing—surge protectors ensures that your sensitive electronics, such as entertainment systems and computers, aren’t fried during a power surge.
