Wiring Upgrade In Newtown, PA
Here at Mandia Electric, we were recently given the opportunity to employ our particular set of skills by performing a wiring upgrade for a customer in the Newtown area. Our customer's home was still sporting a fairly old form of wiring called knob and tube, which mostly fell out of favor for newer and safer methods after the 70's when it came to new home construction. While there are some knob and tube wiring systems that do function normally, the age of most of these wiring setups does tend to cause problems, as the rubber insulation on these wires tends to degrade over the years and leave the live wire exposed to air and moisture. To help our customer better improve their residence, we eliminated the knob and tube wiring system that was already in place, and installed new lines and circuits throughout the home. Not only will this help to make their home run more efficiently, but it will also drastically reduce the chance of a short or an electrical fire.
As a finishing touch on this project, we also installed new receptacles and light switches, as well as new chandeliers, light fixtures, and even some tasteful recessed lighting. Finally, we upgraded the electrical panel to a 200 Amp service to better accommodate their home's power needs. All in all, we don't think our customer could be any happier with their new electrical setup. Not only is their home going to run more efficiently from this point on with their new wiring and electrical panel, but it will also be much safer with the aging knob and tube wiring system out of the way. Our customers know when they are looking for a quality electrician in the Newtown area who stands behind their work 100%, the only name to know is Mandia Electric.
