Common Signs Of Old Wiring

If you aren't entirely sure whether or not your home's wiring is on the older side, there are a few things you can be on the lookout for that might give you an indication, including:

  • Your wiring seems to be cracked, falling apart, or otherwise deteriorating.
  • Your wiring is black. Newer wiring uses PVC materials and will usually be white or gray.
  • If you don't have an outlet every six to eight feet on walls, your home likely isn't wired properly.
  • If you experience blown fuses or breakers often, it can often be an indication of a wiring issue.

Removal & Replacement Of Old Wiring

If you have lived in an older home for some time now, and have never had the wiring replaced, the chances are that your home is overdue. Homes built even as recently as 1980 might not be up to modern standards, and with so many devices and appliances being used regularly in homes, that has the serious potential to cause problems. Older wiring simply isn't designed to handle the electrical load that is required by most modern homes, and it will continue to deteriorate due to this overload until you either have it replaced or it results in a more serious problem.
