Why Many Stafford Homes Need Electrical Work
With many older homes built before the 1990s – some dating as far back as the 1930s – Stafford has many homes with outdated electrical systems. As you can imagine, a lot can happen to your wires, distribution panel, and other parts of your electrical system in that amount of time. When it comes to anything dealing with power or electricity, you don’t want to take any risks. Older wires and electrical panel failure can lead to house fires if not addressed appropriately. Also, with the amount of power going to your lights, outlets, and appliances, one misstep or oversight can potentially electrocute someone. This becomes more of a concern with older electrical systems that haven’t been inspected or cared for over the years.
So, if you have lights that flicker, outlets that aren’t working, or breaker circuits that won’t reset, you may have something going on with your wiring or distribution panel. Because of the dangers associated with electrical repair work, you should always rely on a licensed, insured electrician who knows how to safely inspect electrical systems and perform repairs.
IMPORTANT: If you have smoke or fire in your home caused by your electrical system, call your electrical company right away and tell them to temporarily shut off your home’s electricity. Call 9-1-1 or the nearest Stafford fire department to handle any fires before calling John Moore.

Electrical Panel Installation, Inspections, and Repairs in Stafford
Also commonly referred to as a distribution or breaker panel, your home’s electrical panel is the central component of your entire electrical system. It distributes power throughout your home and provides a safeguard, shutting down electricity to areas that are drawing dangerous amounts of electricity. This feature, known as the “breaker” function, is designed to prevent explosions and fires resulting from power surges. If your home is over thirty years old, you may have an electrical panel that lacks this feature or the features that protect your home against overcurrents and short circuits.
If you live in an older home, you should check the model number of your breaker panel because there have been recalls involving defects in the design of certain panels that may prevent the it from breaking circuits when there is power surge. By having your electrical panel inspected every three to five years, you can avoid potential electricity dangers. Also, if you’re thinking of adding new appliances, you should have a licensed electrician inspect your breaker panel to avoid any electrical surges and fires. With our team of licensed, insured electricians, John Moore can consult with you on an electrical panel replacement and best practices when it comes to your electrical system.

Professional Electrical Rewires in Stafford
What’s the difference between older wiring systems and newer wiring systems in homes? Before the 90s, homes were sometimes outfitted with aluminum wires that were protected by sub-quality plastic insulators. Today, modern electrical wiring systems across the board use copper wires protected with PVC insulators. What’s the difference? Aluminum wires are more prone to overheating because they are not as resistant as copper. Copper conducts electricity with enough electrical resistance to prevent the wire from overheating, and PVC insulators are abrasion resistance, tougher, and more durable than standard plastic or rubber insulation. Because your wires are less likely to become exposed with PVC, the lower the risk of exposed wires creating sparks and fires behind your home’s walls.
For newer homes, be on the lookout for wire damage from pests like mice and rats. Because they’re teeth are forever growing, these pests seek out materials to chew on that will help sharpen them – like your wires. Rodents chewing through your wire insulation can cause a number of things to happen. Exposed wires can lead to house fires. You might also have to deal with flickering lights or outlets that don’t work because of the wire damage. If you see any signs of wire damage in your home, you should call a licensed electrician to inspect your home’s distribution panel and wiring system to make the appropriate repairs and upgrades.
