Do I Really Need To Rewire My Home?
Opinions differ as to how often you should rewire a house, but the general consensus is every 25 years. Some believe that whole-home rewiring service is only practical when an electrical problem occurs. In fact there are several ways to determine if you should invest in home rewiring. Replacing old electrical work is one reason to rewire, but completing another renovation, upgrading your electrical capacity, or replacing damaged wires are all good reasons to do so.
If you have experienced a persistent burning smell, flickering lights, or problems with your outlets, you should think about calling a professional. Other signs that your home needs rewired include discolored power receptacles and experiencing electrical shocks.
How Much Would A Home Rewire Cost?
The price of rewiring a house ranges from $2,000 to $6,000 on average. Generally, the biggest factor to the price of electrical rewiring is the size of the home. However, pricing for whole home rewiring may also depend on the accessibility of the components and any upgrades to the electrical panel.
Your home rewiring service could be covered by your insurance or home warranty. While the specific amount of coverage will depend on your homeowners insurance policy, your home insurance should cover a portion of your rewiring costs. You might also qualify for a lower premium or new-wiring credit.
