Electrical Rewiring: Rewiring an older home



Electrical Rewiring Question:
My house is about 80 years old and still has the original wiring. Breakers are always blowing and I am afraid the insulation on the wiring is disintegrating. Is it normal to have a house rewired, and how much money (round about) should it cost? ask-the-electrician.com
Thanks- Lisa.

Hi Lisa - Great Electrical Repair Question!
Oh my - Yes it is normal to have a house rewired, and I would strongly advise it even if you need to do one part at a time, such as the problem areas you are experiencing. The cost really depends on rates in your area, accessibility for removing and reinstalling the wiring, what size circuits will be replaced etc
