Electrical Code violations are a risk for you and your family. Now, they may be due to an outdated home or your inexperienced DIY attempts at fixing or installing something. Whatever the cause may be, our team of electrician Rockford IL is here to provide repairs.
Here are a few common violations you should know about.
Knob and Tube Wiring
Back in the late 1800s, knob and tube wiring was considered the best there is. However, today, we know that it’s dangerous since the wires have disintegrating insulation and are not grounded.
Thus, if your home was built in the early 1900s or any time before 1950, make sure to get the rewiring done for your home. Besides safeguarding your family, it will also enable you to get a good deal on insurance.
New Lights On Old Wiring
Likewise, if new light fixtures are installed on old wiring, they can overload the system. Older wires can withstand up to 60 degrees Celsius, but modern ones work perfectly even at 90 degrees Celsius.
If the wiring in your home is from earlier than 1987, you should contact us to install new wiring for new light fixtures. Check the insulation jacket of the wiring to find the manufacturing date.
If there’s no date, it’s confirmed that the wires are pre-1987.
