Electrical Rewires and Updates for Your Fixer Upper
Taking on a fixer upper project? When fixing up a home there are many items to consider including: budget, design, permits, plumbing, landscaping, and more. If you are tackling renovations or remodels on an older home, the electrical wiring may require work to bring it up to today’s standards and codes. After all, homes built 60-plus years ago didn’t have to support the appliances of today like air conditioners, washing machines, hair dryers, microwaves, and refrigerators. Even if your fixer upper was built more recently, shoddy electrical work is a serious hazard and the home should be rewired.
When it comes to complex electrical work, like completely rewiring a house, it’s best to seek professional contractors. If you are investing in a fixer upper, Better Homes & Gardens Home Services connects you with residential electricians in your area who can provide you with free quotes to update your home’s electrical wiring.
Install New Lighting to Brighten Your Space
Adding new light fixtures is a great way to add warmth and personality to your existing space. From ceiling fans and chandeliers to pendants and wall sconces, the light fixtures you choose can make a significant statement about your home’s personality. When it’s time to pick new light fixtures, you’ll want to consider what sizes and designs will work with your space as well as the level of brightness you want to achieve. You may even want to consult an interior lighting designer to help you select the light fixtures that suit your home and your personal style.
Are you looking for more decorative lighting or eco-friendly lighting? Would you prefer recessed lighting or is it possible to add some fun uplights to your space? An electrician can help ensure your lighting is installed correctly and achieves your desired look. Electrical contractors can also recommend specific bulbs and wattage for your existing light fixtures. Once you find a professional electrician using Better Homes & Gardens Home Services, ask them what lighting options will work well in your home.
Basement Wiring and Finishing
Finished basements are the perfect way to add more living space and value to your home. Entertainment rooms, bar areas, extra bedrooms, in-home exercise rooms, and theater rooms are just a few of the ways that you can make the most of your basement space. There is really no limit to all the possibilities! But before you can begin the fun design projects, you will need to make sure that your basement has the correct electrical wiring.
Wiring a basement is no small project. An electrical contractor must determine if your existing wiring can support the new function of the space or if the house will need to be rewired before the basement is finished. An electrician can also help you figure out how many recessed lights to install and where to position the light switches.
