Who’s an electrician near me that specializes in older homes?
At Ms. Sparky Electric, our electricians have a lot of experience working on older homes in Encinitas. Working on the electrical systems of older homes requires excellent problem-solving skills and years of experience with different types of electrical systems, which all of the electricians at Ms. Sparky have. We love bringing older homes up to modern electrical standards and helping homeowners enjoy all of the modern conveniences found in newer homes.
With an older home, there are a lot of unknowns. Many have gone through previous remodels, sometimes multiple remodels, and we never know what we’re going to find when we open up the walls. Our first goal is always to make sure your home is safe. We will take care of any wiring that may be a fire hazard and bring your electrical work up to modern standards. We know how to deal with older electrical systems, and we will always work to complete your job in the most cost-effective way possible while still keeping your family safe.
Many older homes are also in need of panel upgrades, since they were built in a time where not as many electrical devices were used on a daily basis. A 100-Amp panel used to be sufficient for a single-family home, but a 200-Amp panel is now needed in most homes using the typical number of electric devices and appliances. Do you have a home where you aren’t able to use more than a couple of electrical devices at a time? It may be time for an electrical panel upgrade. Even some newer homes can benefit from a panel upgrade if you are doing things like installing solar panels or an electric vehicle charging station.
If you have an older home in Encinitas, Carlsbad, Oceanside, San Marcos, or another San Diego community that is in need of some electrical upgrades or repairs, or if you’re doing a remodel on your older home, we’d love to talk with you about it.
