Rewiring Your Home For The Future

Rewiring Your Home For The Future

Technology has advanced in leaps and bounds over the last few decades and has been incorporated into different aspects of the home. Through the adaptation of technology, homes can now come with audio and visual home security, voice recognition, mobile access, built-in irrigation, automatic thermostats, and more. Because of rapid technological advancement, the homes we live in now are vastly different from the homes of the recent past. In fact, homes that were built only 15 or 20 years ago may not be equipped for modern technology such as smart home integration. To keep your home current and light up your future, consider rewiring.

Modern Wiring: Improving Your Home

Central Wiring

With all of the fancy additions homes come with now, it’s best to have a central wiring system. This allows you to add multiple smart systems or features at a later date. A central wiring system includes your lighting, security, and internet communication systems. The central control area for this wiring system should be located somewhere with good temperature control, minimal dust, plenty of outlets, access to service feeds, and enough room for an electrical panel.

Aspects Involved In Wiring

  • Infrared (IR) technology is used to make remote control features possible. If you want your home to have remote capabilities, it will need to have an IR system installed.
  • Ethernet cables connect your computers and computer-based systems to a network.
  • Patch cables are used to connect different devices. If you want to use smart devices within your home, you will need patch cables to help distribute signals.
  • The installation of neutral wires allows for easy additions for future home automation installations. 
  • Wiring in the ceilings and walls allows for easy installation of audio systems such as surround sound speakers.
  • Cable conduits are a type of piping that protect wires. Installing these can help your cables last for longer, especially if they run outside.

Who Should Rewire Your Home?

When upgrading your home wiring, call an experienced electrician. Attempting to wire your home by yourself can be exceptionally dangerous, with increased risk of electrocution and fire. Hiring a professional residential electrician not only guarantees safety but also guarantees a better result. Your wiring will be correctly installed so that everything works immediately and over time. As technology advances, there may be more changes down the road, but having your wiring done by a professional now makes it simple to add more devices and features in the future. Your electrician will also be able to make suggestions for improvements or for features you may not realize are available. The experience and training of electrical contractors are invaluable and will ensure a thorough update of your home and continuously beneficial electrical features.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
