Rewiring in Roanoke
Updating Your Wiring to Meet Safety Requirements in Salem, VA
Rewiring is the replacement of an old, outdated or worn-out electrical panel and wires in your home. If your home has “knob and tube” wiring or screw in or fuses in the electrical panel, chances are the wiring is over 40 years old and should be replaced to meet current safety code standards.
If you would like more information about rewiring in your home, contact Ostrom Electrical Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning at (540) 253-1559. Our electricians always have your safety in mind.
Dangers of Electrical System Overloads
When a 15-amp fuse blows, it can be tempting to replace it with a 20-amp fuse. And when that 20-amp fuse blows, it can be just as tempting to screw in a 30-amp fuse. In a situation like this, you are potentially overloading your electrical system and creating a fire hazard.
Replacing a fuse with a higher rated fuse is not a solution to the tripping circuit problem. This causes the circuit or wires to heat up to dangerous levels and increase the threat of a major house fire. By overriding the electrical circuit, you are endangering the lives of everyone in your home.

Most electrical wiring found in homes today is in good shape. But, the only way to tell for sure is to call a highly qualified Roanoke electrician from Ostrom Electrical Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning.
