How can I tell if my home needs rewiring?

Signs include frequent circuit breaker trips, flickering lights, burning smells, or discolored outlets. An inspection by a licensed electrician will confirm if rewiring is needed.

Will rewiring increase my home's value?

Yes, rewiring can increase your home's value, especially if the current wiring is outdated or not up to safety standards.

Is a permit required for home rewiring?

Yes, most jurisdictions require a permit for rewiring projects. McCann Electric handles the permitting process to ensure compliance.

Does rewiring replace my electrical panel?

Is rewiring dangerous if not done properly?

Yes, faulty wiring can lead to fire hazards, electrical shocks, and other safety risks. It's best to hire licensed electricians to ensure proper installation.
