3 Electrical Upgrades in Delray Beach to Consider for the New Year!

Posted On: January 8, 2016

One of the best things you can do this year is to make electrical upgrades to your Delray Beach home.

Why You Might Need Electrical Upgrades for Your Delray Beach Home

If your home is more than 30 years old, it’s absolutely time to think about upgrading the electrical system. The reason for this is twofold.

First, it’s about convenience. With the growing popularity of tablets, smart phones, smart glasses, smart watches adding to the already hefty power use of 21st century living, only the most recently built homes have electrical systems with sufficient outlets. Most households make do with a bunch of power strips…. But unfortunately, that’s not the safest way to meet your power needs.

And that brings us to the second reason: safety. When you routinely demand more electricity than your home’s system is equipped to handle, then you’re just a few steps away from something going wrong. This could mean blown fuses, tripped breaker switches, or worse: burnt out wiring and electrical fires.

In short, it’s an investment in both your safety and comfort to get your home’s electric system up to speed. What’s more: if you’re planning to sell your home, having a robust electrical system can make a difference of tens of thousands of dollars if a buyer is looking for a turnkey solution.

Sensible Electrical Upgrades for Your Delray Beach Home

Here are our top three recommended electrical upgrades:

  1. Rewiring. This is without a doubt the most effective and safety-enhancing upgrade. An electrician will map out your current system and assess your actual needs. Then he or she will design a new system that’s more than adequate to meet your needs.
  2. Whole house surge protection. Those power strips we mentioned earlier often come combined as surge protectors. However, it’s far more effective to have a whole house surge protector installed that protects the home both from interior and exterior surges.
  3. Communication wiring. Communication wiring is increasingly important, since we run not only landlines on them, but also all Internet connections and security wiring. Upgrading to a system that facilitates contemporary communications, as well as security, is both convenient and safe.
