Requiring a rewiring of the whole home

When I bought my first home, I knew very little about necessary maintenance.

I had no clue how to handle repairs.

Buying an older home presented some difficulties. I was faced with windows that wouldn’t open yet leaked a tremendous amount of air. There was very little water pressure and not enough hot water. All of the appliances were outdated and everything from washing clothes to keeping milk cold was a struggle. One of my biggest complaints was the lack of power outlets. I had a single plug in each room, and they were all the two-prong variety. I bought a package of convertors and several power strips so that I could plug in my microwave, coffee maker, toaster, phone chargers and my hair dryer. I needed extension cords to plug in box fans and electric blankets. I quickly learned how to fix a tripped breaker because it happened multiple times per day. Because of the ugliness and inconvenience of the power strips and extension cords, I finally hired a licensed electrician to install some more outlets. He took a look at my set up and told me that I needed an entire rewiring of the home. He informed me that my electrical panel and wires weren’t up to the safety standards of locals codes. Although I wasn’t happy about the major disruption and expense involved, the result has made such an improvement to my everyday life. I now have plenty of outlets to accommodate all of my needs. I don’t need to worry over sparks, shocks or risk of a fire.
