Do I need to replace old wiring in an older home?


Answer by  jordandevers (318)

The best way to determine this safely is to have a licensed electrician come out and inspect your home wiring for any defects.

You probably need an electrician to actually look at your home to decide this. Is the insulation on the wiring cracking or worn? Do fuses blow regularly? If so, yes.

When power cables age,they become ineffective in delivery of power and are easily broken. This can cause fire where broken joints overheat and since the insulation is not effective, it also catches fire. It is important to check how far they are worn out so that you may consider replacement if they are greatly damaged.
