So how do you know if your electrical wiring is up to date? There are a few ways you can tell immediately that your wiring could use some updating:

  • Circuit Breakers Trip: If you are constantly tripping your circuit breakers, if the fuses blow continuously, or if you have to flip those breakers a lot, you should probably update your electrical wiring by calling one of your local electrical contractors.
  • Dimming Or Flickering Lights: If your lights dim or flicker a lot, especially if you have something else plugged in, your wiring could be faulty. You should definitely call an electrician at Heise Electric to come and check your wiring.
  • electrical wiringExtension Cords: If you have to use extension cords or adapters to add more electric outlets in your home, your wiring is probably not up to date. In addition, you should have grounded outlets (three-prong) throughout your home. Older homes will have non-grounded (two-prong) outlets. If this is the case, call Heise Electric to update your wiring.

It’s important to call an electrical contractor to handle any wiring issues or problems. Not only is it difficult if you try to do it on your own, but it is extremely dangerous to mess with electrical wiring unless you are a licensed, trained professional like those at Heise Electric.
