Upgrading Electrical Systems in Older Homes
In homes built before 1962, we will replace those ungrounded two-prong outlets that don’t protect you or your electronics. Starting in 1956, the National Electrical Code required three-prong outlets outdoors and in garages and basements. After 1971, standards changed to require the use of robust GFCI outlets in damp areas where shocks are more likely to occur. To protect your family, have us test these safety features and perform updates if needed.
Most older homes can’t support modern electricity demands. Today, a 60- or 100-amp service will struggle to power all of your electronic gadgets. If your microwave trips the breaker or your vacuum cleaner dims the lights, our electricians can upgrade your electrical panel or install a dedicated circuit for your high-energy appliances.
For your safety and peace of mind, our in-house electrical contractors will repair those nagging electrical issues. Contact Horne Heating and Air Conditioning Inc. today to discuss your concerns or to request an estimate for our electrical services. We are waiting to serve our friends and neighbors in Charlotte, Matthews, Mooresville, and Huntersville, North Carolina.
