How An Electrical Remodel Could Save You Money
August 27, 2021
Older homes can be a good investment. They offer quaint charm, and you might not be able to afford or find a new build when you need it. But setting your sights on an older home shouldn’t mean you have to settle for increased electricity bills and failing electrical circuits. You should consider talking to an electrical contractor about electrical remodels and other upgrades.
An Electrical Remodel Can Lower Your Electricity Bill
There are two main ways investing in an electrical remodel will save you money on your electricity bill! First off, damaged electrical wiring can cause appliances to heat up, using more electricity to run. New wiring will fix that issue.
Second, with an electrical remodel comes all sorts of fun smart home automation to save you money. Some examples of smart home automation include installing a Ring motion-activated camera doorbell, outlets with built in USB ports and nightlights, and more.
One of our customers’ favorites is the Lutron Caseta Smart Switch. The wireless Lutron Caseta dimmer gives you the ability to set the right light for any activity using the free app, your voice, from the wall, or with the Pico remote!
Reduce Fire Risk with An Electrical Remodel
Worse than the risk of a high electricity bill is the risk of a fire hazard in your home. Older homes weren’t designed with wiring capable of handling the electrical draw of all the appliances we use today. It is easier for an older electrical system to be overloaded and faulty leading to a fire.
Older electrical systems are more sensitive to power surges. Investing in home surge protection is a great way to protect your appliance and other electronics from getting damaged.
Work With an Electrical Contractor
The best thing to do if you have an old electrical system in your home is to upgrade. If you have other remodels planned, it’s easiest to do electrical upgrades at the same time.
