When to Change the Wiring in Your House

Every house today has a network of wires and cables. This is the visible and invisible

network that runs all the gadgets and implements in the house, from the toaster, geyser to

our smartphones. In many ways, without a wiring network we cannot have a modern

functioning home or lifestyle.

This makes wiring rather important. But as houses get old, so does it wiring. No matter

how efficient or top-notch the wiring was when it was first installed, age can cause wear

and tear on everything. So, eventually we may all have to replace the wiring in our house.

A good house wire manufacturer along with a reliable contractor can ensure that our

house remain safe and energy-efficient.

Need for a reliable wiring

Is it important to pay any extra attention to the wiring in your home? Isn’t it ok if you can

switch on the bulb? Can you really have bad electrical wiring? Yes, no and yes! There are

plenty of homes with faulty electrical wiring, either because the builder was cutting costs or

because it is simply outdated.

Fire hazard: Every year a number of residential fires start because of faulty wiring and

short circuit. Usually the inhabitants are caught completely unaware. The loss of life and

property can be catastrophic. Checking the wiring and keeping it updated can significantly

remove such dangers.

Rules & regulations: A faulty wiring is not just a hazard, it is also in contravention to

established rules and regulations. Home owners have to comply with national and local

electrical codes. If you are a home owner with tenants, any mishap will mean serious legal

complications for you.

working of your gadgets every gadget

Working of your gadgets: Every gadget has a voltage limitation. Beyond this it can

overload and burn out. A good wiring system is essential to see that there is a regular and

proper distribution of power. irregular power, overloading also has an adverse effect on the

electronic implement, shortening its life significantly.

However, for the layman or woman it is not always easy to determine when they need to

rework the wiring in their home. Ideally, this should be determined by an electrician. But

there are some telltale signs that you need help. So, here are some tips that spell trouble

and indicate that you should start looking for a reliable house wire manufacturer for

rewiring your house.

State or age of the building: Old homes, at least homes that date before 1980 often have

aluminium wiring and these wires do not have a long life. So, it’s probably high time to

change the wiring. If you find that your home has aluminium wiring, it’s a good idea to

switch to copper. Usually one should change the wiring in 40-45 years as a precaution.

Frequent tripping of fuses or blown fuses: A trip or a blown fuse occurs when there is

overloading of the circuit. The fuse trips or shuts down to prevent any further damage. You

will experience it anytime there was a sudden overload. But, frequent tripping means that

there is a bigger problem that must be addressed and this is usually to do with the wiring.

Check the appearance: Some of the evaluation can be done visually. An old building with

damp problem, means that the moisture is seeping onto the pipes carrying the wires.

Similarly, if you see that the casing carrying the wires are bent ow misshapen, it is a sign

of over-heating. This again indicates a wiring problem.

The wires themselves will show signs of heavy wear and tear. Cables coated with black

rubber, fabric, lead indicate an old wiring system, since these insulations are rarely used

by house wire manufacturers today. They are also not allowed in some cases. A wrongly

labelled fuse box, a fuse box that looks visibly old (has a wooden back or cast iron

switches) also mean an overhaul.

Calling for professional help

Working with electric wires can be hazardous, especially for those of us who do not have

an adequate knowledge of this. It is always more prudent to get a good electrician to check

your house wiring. An expert can also tell you if the wiring is of right grade, size, and

specifications to accommodate all the electronic equipment in your home. Lastly, you must

always source your wiring from a reliable and reputable house wire manufacturer.
