One of your New Year’s resolutions may involve home improvement projects, such as rewiring a house. While we feel all rewiring upgrades should be done by a licensed electrician – such as our trusted Dallas electricians – we know many of you want to make this a do-it-yourself project in an effort of saving money.
This project has so many intricate steps that it’s best to have a professional handle it. You must be able to check and remove the breaker box, connect and reconnect switches, peel insulation and be on point with the number of wires needed.
If you still plan on making this one of your projects, here are a couple things you should know. Best of luck to you.
- Be smart and prepared: Wear proper safety gear (goggles, gloves, etc.) when you’re working on projects such as this. Also, have the proper tools available (wires, wire cutters, cables, etc.)
- Switch goes off: So that you won’t catch a nasty shock, make sure all electric power is turned off.
- Do your homework: Make sure you know how many lights and switches are in the home before starting the project. Also, count the number of power outlets.
There are plenty other tips you can use for a rewiring project, and our Dallas TX electrical company is here to assist you with all your needs. Call us, or contact us online today for more information.
