Does My Home Need to Be Rewired?

It can be hard to know when you need your home rewired. You may be overlooking some signs that your electrical system is taking strain to avoid this daunting task. However, when you contact us to handle your rewiring, you can enjoy a hassle-free project. Here are some signs to look out for:


If you live in an older home, your electrical system is likely having a hard time keeping up with your modern demand for electricity. While you may want to keep your old home the way it is, you may not be able to take advantage of many technological advancements. In addition to that, old wiring can be a fire hazard and put your family at risk. If it has been more than 50 years since your home was wired, contact us to rewire your home and restore its capabilities.

Aluminum Wiring

Homes that were built between 1965 and 1973 used aluminum wiring. If your home was built during that period, you likely have aluminum wiring running through your home. In recent years, experts have found that aluminum wires pose a higher risk of electrical fires. Contact us for an electrical inspection to determine whether you need your home rewired.

Flickering Lights

There are many reasons for flickering lights. If you are certain that your light bulbs are fitted properly, your lights may be flickering due to faulty or loose wires. Once again, schedule an electrical inspection with one of our experts to find the source of your flickering lights. Colonial Home Services is here to ensure that your home works as it should.

Burning Odors

Burning smells in your home are never a good sign. This could be a sign that you need rewiring. Loose connections and damage can cause your wiring to short. This may create sparks that burn your wires, outlets, and walls. Inspect your home for visible signs of burning. This is a serious issue that needs to be dealt with immediately. Burning wires is a sure way to start an electrical fire. Notify the local fire department if you see scorch marks around your house. Once the fire department has the situation under control, contact us to rewire your home.

Frequently Tripped Circuit Breakers

When a circuit breaker trips, it is a sign that something is not quite right in your home. A circuit breaker is responsible for stopping the flow of current when too much power runs through your wires. This is a safety measure to keep your home and appliances safe from power surges. If your circuit breaker is faulty, it won’t be able to protect your electrical system. When your circuit breaker keeps tripping, you could need to rewire your home.
