FAQs

How do I know if my home’s electrical wiring is poor?

As homeowners, we use our electricity more often than we think, and most times, we take it for granted until there is something wrong with it. However, a lot of the time, homeowners will either ignore the signs that could indicate poor electrical wiring throughout their home or be completely unaware that something could be wrong. As a result, poor electrical wiring can lead to damage to your home’s appliances and electronics, cause an electrical fire, or lead to severe bodily harm or death due to electric shocks. This is why it is imperative that homeowners be aware of the signs they could have poor wiring in their home so they can fix the issue before it becomes more dangerous and costly.

How do I know when to replace my home’s electrical wiring?

Generally speaking, your home’s electrical wiring should last upwards of 50 years before it will need to be replaced. However, if you have aluminum wiring in your home, it is imperative that homeowners replace this wiring immediately as it is highly hazardous. Because of this, many insurance companies throughout the province have stopped covering aluminum electrical wiring.

While aluminum wiring itself is not the issue, the connections it makes throughout your home are. As aluminum conducts electricity very well, it is more likely to cause an electrical fire throughout your home than homes that are wired with copper. Therefore, if you are living in an older home, there may be a possibility that your electrical wiring is made with aluminum as opposed to copper.

To ensure your home’s electrical wiring is safe for you and your family, book an appointment with the professional electrical team at Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning. We’ll have an electrician come to your home in no time to perform a thorough inspection of your wiring to ensure that it is up to code. In the event that your electrical wiring in Hamilton, Ontario, is made of aluminum, our team is well-equipped with the knowledge and skills to replace your existing electrical system with copper wiring to ensure you and your family are safe from the possibility of electrical fires and high voltage electric shocks.

Call usdirectly or book an appointment with Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning online. Our electrical team is available 24/7/365 days of the year with no extra charges for electrical wiring services that are required during after-hours, emergencies, on weekends, or holidays!

How long should a home’s electrical wiring last?

Generally speaking, your home’s electrical wiring should last up to 50 years. If your home has copper wiring installed, your home’s electrical wiring should last up to 100 years. Unlike other aspects of your home, sometimes, it can be difficult to tell when your home’s electrical wiring needs replacement.

Here are some warning signs that could indicate that your electrical system may need to be replaced:

  • Your electrical wires have begun to fray or crack.
  • Your outlets and switches have burn marks on them.
  • Your circuit breaker frequently trips when you have more than a couple home appliances running at the same time.
  • There is smoke coming from one of your home’s appliances or outlets.
  • The lights throughout your home dim when you plug in other home appliances.
  • You hear crackling, buzzing, or popping from your appliances or electric devices.

If any of these signs sound familiar, it may be time to call a professional electrician to your home. An electrician will be able to provide homeowners in Hamilton, Ontario, with a thorough inspection of their home’s electrical system and determine whether or not a complete replacement is required.

We’re available 24/7365 days of the year and do not charge extra for electrical wiring services that are required during after-hours, emergencies, on weekends, or holidays! Boonstra is also pleased to offer financing!
