Common Old House Wiring Issues

Have you seen any of these issues in your older home? Don’t wait for serious issues or injuries to happen. Contact Marlin Electric LLC for honest and accurate assistance with your old house wiring and electrical repairs

Dead Outlets:

Some older homes may have older electrical breakers, which can lead to one dead outlet or multiple. It’s not uncommon to have these typical electrical issues in an older home, even new constructions or additions can be installed improperly leading to minor and major faulty wiring.

Insubstantial Power:

If you turn on any appliance in your house and the lights in the house dim, it’s time to call Marlin Electric. In today’s world, we need additional electrical power that older homes weren’t normally built with. Certain codes and restrictions didn’t require electricians or builders to equip a home with more power than it needed.

Dimming & Flickering Bulbs:

Poor connections may mean that brightness varies room to room in your house. For older homes, the wires may be worn down and at risk of causing a fire, which is also a great reason to have a smoke detector installed in your older home. 

Knob and Tube Electrical Wiring:

This may not need to be replaced, but it certainly deserves careful inspection and possibly replacement or repair, because knob and tube systems lack an electrical ground, may have damaged insulation or may have been improperly modified or extended by previous owners.

Insulation:

An old house with outdated wiring may also mean poor insulation. All wires should be properly maintained as poor insulation could result in a house fire.
