Updating electrical wiring in the home Teenfree webcam
If you have an older home that was built to minimum standards, chances are the electrical system is operating beyond its design capacity.
The materials required to completely rewire your home will depend on a number of factors, such as the size of your home and the type of upgrades you require, for instance the installation of new outlets, or having dimmer switches installed.
However, many of the original electrical systems installed in older homes and buildings are still operating today without any significant upgrades.
The wiring used in modern homes is far superior to the products that were manufactured and installed decades ago.
Many older Australian houses have an outdated style of cabling with fabric-sheathed wiring encased in a black steel conduit.
When left alone, this type of wiring may not pose a threat, however if worked on, moved or disturbed it can cause fuses to blow and may become dangerous.
It’s also important to make sure that your main switchboard and earthing system is up-to-date.
