Your San Diego Electrician for Rewiring Older Homes
Homes built before 1970 are not equipped for today's modern appliances. If your breakers trip when you plug in too many appliances, it may be time to consider an electrical service upgrade for your older home. If you have space in your breaker box, we may be able to add additional circuits to your existing service. However, if you are already utilizing all the available power in your home, it may be time to consider an electrical service upgrade. Our San Diego electricians are well equipped to provide re-wiring services for older homes.
Most older homes have only 100 amps of available power. Space heaters, blow dryers, microwaves, plasma TVs and computers were most likely not available when your home was built. These days most modern homes require a minimum of 200 amps of electrical service in order to support today's appliances.
Why Do The Lights Go Out When You Plug In Too Many Appliances in Your Older Home?
In order to protect your wires from overheating and starting a fire, circuit breakers are designed to trip and cut off the power to everything on that circuit. This is a good thing. When circuit breakers get old and worn out, they may not trip when there is too much power being drawn on a single circuit. If you are living in an older home and your lights are NOT going out when there are many appliances plugged in it is time for an Electrical Safety Inspection. If too much electricity is flowing through your house wires you may have a dangerous fire hazard on your hands. More fires are started from faulty or overloaded wiring than any other cause.
