Types of Wiring for a New Installation
When it comes to having new wires installed at a house, it is essential to think about which option is best. Since high-quality wiring can last for many years, or even decades, residents should carefully consider what kinds of wires are known for their durability. Different wires have distinct purposes and are not always interchangeable.
Some common kinds of wiring systems to be installed at homes include:
- Non-metallic cable – Also known as Romex, non-metallic or NM cable is a common type of wiring used for residential installations. It is made up of insulated copper wires and a non-metallic sheathing that provides protection from moisture and abrasion.
- Underground feeder cable – Underfeeder (UF) cable is similar to NM cable, but it is designed for underground installations. This cable is composed of insulated copper wires and a waterproof sheathing that provides protection from moisture and other environmental factors.
- Conduit – Sometimes electrical wires need to be housed by extra protection, which is why electricians will install a conduit system. While it is commonly used in commercial and industrial applications, it can also be used in residential installations. Conduit can be made from metal or plastic and offers a high level of security for the wiring.
How Often Does a House Need to Be Rewired?
No one desires to replace parts of their home unless absolutely necessary. This especially applies to the electrical system, which can be laborious and time-intensive to accomplish. Nevertheless, all these components will eventually wear out, including the wiring itself. How long can residents expect their house’s wiring to last? Generally, it is recommended that a house be rewired every 25 to 40 years. This timeline can be reduced if there are signs of problems such as flickering lights, frequently tripping circuit breakers, or burning smells. Older homes with outdated wirings, such as knob-and-tube wiring or aluminum wiring, may need to be rewired sooner due to safety concerns.
The Importance of Replacing Aluminum Wires
Many residents are unaware that even though they are not currently experiencing electrical issues, their system is at risk because it uses aluminum wires. These wiring systems have recently been proven to be a fire hazard in older homes and buildings. This is because they have been known to overheat and cause electrical fires, which can be dangerous and costly to repair. Additionally, aluminum wiring can become corroded over time, leading to poor electrical connections and potential safety issues. Homeowners can improve their whole house's safety by having our team at B & W Electric replace aluminum wiring with copper or other alternatives.
