Managing the electrical wiring during a remodel can prove to be one of the most challenging parts of the process. Electrical work must be done safely and correctly to ensure that you don’t spend the days after the remodel in the dark or with appliances on the fritz. More importantly, we don’t want you getting hurt. If you are planning to remodel your home, give us a call at Ferree Electric to manage the electrical work.
Anything in your home that uses electricity will have electrical wiring. During the remodeling process, it is critical that existing wiring stays intact and that lines are not disconnected. Far too often we hear horror stories about people who thought they were disconnecting something from their electrical system when, in fact, they removed or ruined something entirely different. As upsetting as that surely is, however, it is far worse when the story ends with someone getting hurt.
It is important to leave the management of electrical wiring to the professionals. Electricity is not to be trifled with, and our team of qualified electricians has the necessary training and experience to install or adjust electrical wiring safely and successfully. Contact us for assistance if your remodeling will require you to adjust any of the following:
- Service panels
- Light switches
- Lighting in your hallways, rooms, garage, and outdoor areas
- Outlets or GFI outlets
- Lightning protection precautions
- Wiring systems for outdoor fixtures
- Phone and speaker wiring
- Specialty services, including USB outlets and entertainment wiring
We are also available for consultations before you begin remodeling to be sure you don’t run into trouble with the electric work later on. If you do experience an unexpected and immediate problem, Ferree Electric also offers 24-hour emergency services. Do not try to correct faulty or damaged wiring on your own. Give us a call, and let us handle it.
Smart Home Wiring
If, as part of your remodel, you are looking to update your appliances to smart ones, Ferree Electric is here to help. Oftentimes the upgrade to automated devices is the reason behind electrical remodeling. Our team of qualified electricians can help with the following and more:
- Smart light switches
- Smart wall outlets
- Smart thermostats
- Smart video doorbells
- Smart smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors
- Smart sprinkler controllers
If you are looking to move major elements of your home during the remodeling process—lighting, speaker systems, WiFi and ethernet connections—rewiring will have to be completed. This process, especially depending on what needs to be rewired, can be extensive and complicated. Fortunately, we are up to the challenge.
Delegating the rewiring process to the professionals will save you time, hassle, any chance of injury, and liability in case anything goes wrong. It will also make certain that the job is performed properly, so you can enjoy the rewards of a well-wired electrical system.
Depending on the age of your home or business, retrofitting may be required, as part of a remodel or for safety reasons. Retrofitting includes updating the electrical systems of a building to match modern safety standards. Every year we develop new measures to protect people and property from electrical damage, and older systems do not always have those kinds of precautions.
In the midst of other remodeling projects may be the best time to undertake necessary electrical retrofitting, especially if walls or floors are already in a state of upheaval. Schedule a professional inspection before deciding whether or not your property needs to be retrofitted. If so, updating electrical wiring and features can improve the safety of a building and its energy efficiency.
