People always ask us if it’s essential to have regularly scheduled maintenance on their electrical system. At Bickimer Electric – your number one Kansas City electrician, we believe it is one of the most important things to have done if you are a homeowner.
It is very beneficial to get to know your electrical system. If you have regular maintenance, you will be able to identify the type of wire was used to construct your network. Knowing the type of wire used is vital because many wiring practices used 10 or 15 years ago are now considered dangerous and a fire hazard. Many panels and breakers installed in the past are now considered obsolete and should be replaced immediately (for example, the Pacific and Pushmatic Panels). Some insurance companies will not insure your home if you have a specific type of wire or a particular brand of electrical panel. All in all, routinely having a Kansas City electrician check that your system is up-to-date and functioning will ensure you can identify minor problems now so that you can avoid significant repairs later.
