Wiring upgrades - we know it's a big deal

Rewiring your home with wiring upgrades is a big job that isn’t cheap. We know. So, that’s why it’s important to understand why it should be done, when it should be done, and how it should be done.

First and foremost, any wiring upgrades should be carried out only by a licensed, professional Winnipeg electrician.

Why should you rewire your home?

There are a few reasons why you should rewire your home, such as:

  • Your home’s wiring is old and maybe damaged or starting to deteriorate
  • Your home’s wiring was not done to code or the code it was done to is outdated
  • Additions were added by previous DIY homeowners

Benefits of rewiring your home:

  • Minimize the risk of electrical fires
  • Avoid unexpected power outages
  • Minimize circuit breaker trips

Upgrade to-prong outlets

Some homes still come with two-prong outlets or have them installed, but the reality is that two-prong outlets can no longer keep up with the demands of the modern home and its appliances. This makes them both unsafe and unreliable.

Rewiring your home will give you a chance to change over to three-prong outlets.

Eliminate unnecessary extension cords and outlets

Just how our garages or basements get filled with stuff over the years without us realizing, the same happens with extension cords for plugging in more and more appliances and other electronics.

This not only creates a lot of clutter, but it also increases the chance of dangerous situations.

Having too many things plugged into an extension cord that is not designed to regulate the power needs opens up a higher risk of an electrical overload or fire.
