To handle increased electrical loads, it’s likely you’ll also need to upgrade electrical wiring, especially if your house is more than 40 years old. Upgrading your electrical wiring is a big job because the wires are located inside of walls, where they are difficult to get at without opening the walls.
For a larger home, or a house with restricted access to a crawlspace and exterior walls, the cost may reach $20,000 and more for labor and materials. The best time to rewire is during a remodeling project, such as renovating your kitchen or adding a family room, when subcontractors are opening your walls anyway. That way, your electrician has easy access to the walls, and refinishing walls will be part of the larger remodeling project—not just the rewiring.
Plan Ahead for Your Future Energy Needs
Structured wiring is a smart investment and may be a marketing advantage if you should decide to sell your home. Structured wiring is a generic term for any heavy-duty electrical and data cables designed to handle the latest entertainment and communication devices—and those yet to be invented—including phones, Internet, and household heating and lighting systems.
