Wiring and Connections
Older homes can have outdated and brittle wiring. Connections that were once good can now be hot spots. It is a common misconception that your electrical system will last forever. Did you know that breakers only have a life expectancy of about 20 years and smoke detectors between 7-10 years? Your electrical system is constantly working and like anything else, it will wear out.
Over the years more and more electrical loads have been introduced to the average household. There are a lot more conveniences in the home now than there were 20 years ago and the electrical safety codes have changed in order to accommodate this. Insurance companies are insisting that older homes with 60 amp services are upgraded to handle the electrical loads of today's lifestyle.
