Barney's Electric
Does your home have knob and tube wiring, aluminum branch electrical wiring, or an ungrounded two wire home electrical wiring system? Are you in the process of selling your home and you need to make electrical safety corrections pending the sale? You may have also had some fire, water, or other structural damage that will require some new home wiring. Whether you are repairing damaged electrical systems or need to upgrade your house wiring, Barney's Electric can take care of all your electrical rewiring needs.

If your home was wired in the 1940’s or earlier, you may have knob and tube wiring. Knob and tube wiring does not provide a third electrical wire for grounding and is therefore considered unsafe in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and outdoors. Also, most homes wired with knob and tube wiring do not have the circuit capacity, nor are they properly sized, for the demand of today’s appliances and wiring standards as established by the National Fire Protection Association. Many modern electronics and appliances require ground wiring. Knob and tube wiring is not suitable and not safe for these items and could cause damage to them, or even worse, the potential loss of life should an electrical fault occur that a grounded system could have prevented.

After knob and tube wiring came two wire home electrical wiring systems. Two wire home electrical wiring systems have some of the same inherent problems as knob and tube. There is no third electrical wire for grounding and is considered unsafe when used outdoors, in laundry rooms, bathrooms, and in kitchens. Additionally, many of our modern electronics and appliances require a solidly grounded electrical system.. As in the case of knob and tube wiring, two wire home electrical wiring systems are not suitable or safe for these items and could cause damage to them, or again, there exists the potential for loss of life as the result of a failure.

If your home was wired in the late 1960’s there is a chance it has aluminum branch electrical wiring. Branch electrical wiring is the wires that connect your receptacles, switches, lights, and other electrical devices. The problem with aluminum electrical wiring lies with the durability of aluminum and the dangers of heat build up due to improperly sized wire for the smaller 15 and 20 amp circuits common to household electrical wiring. Additionally, where the wires wrap around the terminals in the switches, receptacles, or other devices, over time, the wires can disintegrate and also create a fire hazard.

Our licensed electricians at Barney's Electric will arrive in fully stocked vans, ready to take care of all your electrical needs. With over 30 years of residential electrical experience we can assist you in bringing your home up to today’s NEC requirements and to the standards of the National Fire Protection Association.

Having up-to-date, modern electrical wiring in your home should be a major priority since faulty electrical wiring can cause unpredictable damages. The National Fire Protection Association has established clear guidelines as to what constitutes the safest electrical wiring. Our design professionals and owner, Mr. Barney Messenger are up-to-date on the latest and safest house wiring methods available. If you have any questions as to the condition of your home’s wiring, call today to schedule a free consultation. Whether you are rewiring your whole house or just a portion of it, Barney Messenger and his team at Barney's Electric can take care of all your electrical rewiring needs and advise you on the most cost effective way to keep you, your family, and your home safe.
