When Is It Time to Rewire Your Clinton Township, MI, Home?

Here are some signs that it might be time to schedule an appointment with one of our
experienced electricians:

  • House built before 1960: Homes constructed before the late 1950s often used cloth-covered wiring, which deteriorates over time, exposing wires and increasing the risk of sparks, shocks, and fires.
  • Burning smells: Call us immediately if you detect a burning smell coming from an outlet. Burning smell near outlets or switches are critical warning signs that require immediate rewiring.
  • Over-reliance on extension cords: Constantly using extension cords as a permanent solution is a sign your home’s wiring needs an upgrade.
  • Ungrounded electrical system: A properly grounded system is vital for safety. Without proper grounding, excess electricity can cause fires or shocks.
  • Flickering lights: Dimming or flickering lights may indicate wiring issues that need attention.
  • Tripped breakers: Frequent breaker trips suggest overloaded or outdated wiring.


Hot Tub and Swimming Pool Wiring in SE Michigan

Running electrical wiring for hot tubs and swimming pools is one of our specialties. Here’s a quick rundown of how we do it:

  • First, we’ll work with you to determine the exact location of your pool equipment and the electrical needs.
  • Then, we’ll trench underground using special equipment to safely bury a conduit for the electrical wires.
  • The wires themselves will be specifically rated for outdoor and wet locations. We’ll also install a GFCI breaker or outlet at the source, which adds an extra layer of safety by automatically shutting off power in case of any issues.
  • Finally, we’ll make all the connections to your pool equipment and ensure everything is up to code and functioning properly. Safety is our top priority, so you can rest assured your new pool will have a reliable and secure electrical connection.
  • We’ll install a grounding system to prevent electric shock hazards.

Hot tubs typically require a dedicated electrical circuit to handle their power demands. We’ll ensure your electrical system can accommodate this need and use the right outdoor-rated cables and conductors for safe, long-lasting use.

Should I Upgrade My Home’s Electrical System?

As your home accumulates more electric appliances, it’s important to ensure you have enough power to handle the demand. Insufficient power can damage equipment and pose a fire hazard.Many older homes have electrical panels limited to 60-110 amps, while newer homes are equipped for 200 amps. Great Dane can quickly and efficiently upgrade your electrical panel to

200 amps, providing ample power for your modern needs. Preserve your home’s historic charm while enjoying modern conveniences with a panel upgrade.

Frequently Asked Questions About Home Wiring

1. How long does it take to replace electrical wiring in a home?

The rewiring timeline depends on several factors, including the house size, existing wiring age, and installation complexity. A full rewiring can take several days to a couple of weeks. Smaller homes or partial rewiring projects may be completed faster. The process involves removing old wires, installing new cables, and ensuring everything complies with current codes. Since this work requires accessing walls, ceilings, and potentially floors, it’s often best done during major renovations or before moving into a new home.

2. What is the difference between a fuse box and a circuit breaker?

Both fuse boxes and circuit breakers protect electrical circuits from overload or short circuits. However, they differ in how they handle overloads. Fuse boxes contain fuses that need replacing when they blow due to an overload. Circuit breakers, on the other hand, can be reset after tripping. Circuit breakers are the more modern and convenient option, offering easier troubleshooting and maintenance.

3. How much does it cost to rewire a house?

The cost to rewire a house can vary significantly depending on the home’s size, age, and accessibility of existing wiring. Pricing includes:

• Replacing old wires with new copper wiring.
• Installing new electrical panels.
• Ensuring that all work complies with the latest electrical codes and safety standards.

Additional costs may arise if the rewiring project requires opening walls, fixing plaster or drywall, and making other repairs due to accessibility issues. It’s a significant investment but essential for safety and can increase a home’s value and functionality.
