Rewiring a home is delicate work and requires the skill of a trained electrician. At Capricorn Electric, we specialize in home rewiring to provide updates, upgrades, and ensure your house is safe and up to code.

Do I Need to Rewire My Home? 

Rewiring your entire home is a major investment, which is why choosing the right electrician is vital. You’ll want a technician who’s highly trained, certified, and experienced in handling projects of this size and type.


Our Pennsylvania electricians help homeowners with all their electrical needs. No matter how big or small the project is, we can get the job done. The first step is to determine whether you need to rewire your home, which involves removing aging, inefficient, and even unsafe wiring, and electrical devices.  

Signs of faulty wiring

If you encounter any of the following, your wiring may be faulty and you need to shut off power to this area of your house and call a skilled electrician like those at Capricorn Electric.

  • Burnt outlets, strange smells

Visual and olfactory clues of burning can indicate a serious wiring problem in dire need of repair. 

  • Strange sounds and warm outlets

If your wall or outlet is vibrating or making vibrating sounds, this can be a sign of a major issue. Buzzing, popping, vibrating, and extra warmth can be a sign of electricity being somewhere it doesn’t belong. You should shut off the circuit breaker switch to the affected area immediately and call an electrician.


The Process of Wiring a Home

Wiring a home is a time-consuming process, and there is a lot at stake if you do not do the job correctly. Attempting to do it yourself or calling an amateur to handle your wiring needs only to discover a problem once you go to flip on a light switch is a waste of your time and your money. You’ll have to spend more money, later on, to call in a professional to correct those mistakes, which is why we recommend working with certified electricians from the very beginning. Besides, doing the job incorrectly could lead to potential electrical hazards.
