Many factors degrade your home’s electrical wiring over the years, from water damage and aging wires to outdated home wiring methods that keep you from being protected by modern electrical standards. At Huft Home Services, your safety is important to us, and we know the damage and loss that a simple wiring issue like corrosion or protective device failure can cause. There are an estimated 51,000 annual home electrical fires, according to Electrical Safety Foundation International.
Renewed home wiring also offers the substantial convenience and added value of having modern electrical wiring with ample incoming power and safety features throughout your house. It’s a win-win that homeowners only do once, as a whole-house rewire lasts for many decades.
"First class from start to finish. Even brought us portable AC units to hold us over till new units could be installed. Highly recommend!"
Did you know that updated electrical wiring is a desirable feature in a home? It’s valuable to potential buyers, and also to families that enjoy safe, convenient power throughout their homes. A full rewire job includes upgrading your electricity, usually to 200 amp with a new circuit breaker panel to distribute the power. This includes safety features like breaker-based GFCI and AFCI hazard protection, whole-house lighting, and surge protection. Properly rated, grounded circuits run to each room to supply the power you need.
The cost to rewire a house in California can range from $3,000 to $25,000 depending on the type and size of the home and the work to be done. It depends on a lot of factors, so we’ll be glad to provide an accurate quote covering your home’s specific rewiring needs. Home rewiring in Elk Grove can vary from upgrades to grounded wiring, increased capacity, and additional circuits to, in a few cases, replacement of “ancient” knob and tube wiring that was used until the 1940s.
There are many reasons for investing in new electrical wiring for your property. These include:
Knob and tube or aluminum wiring
Limited number of circuits and outlets causing safety issues
Circuit breakers tripping often
Burning smells and discolored switches or outlets
A home with wiring over 25 years old
