When you choose to remodel or add on to your home, it’s going to require electrical rewiring. Plan your electrical upgrade for your remodeling project today with Tim Kyle, a residential electrician servicing Howard County MD.
Home Remodeling with an Electrical Upgrade
The first step for a remodeling project that requires an electrical upgrade is to figure out what you want and what you need. Do you want whole-house audio, a home theater, or network multiple computers? Do you want lighting control or home automation systems? Can you rewire one room now and update the rest of the house later? Create a budget and a plan of your ideas before speaking to a contractor.
Unfortunately, older homes do not have the correct wiring to handle advanced technology. Therefore, if you plan on adding a home theater, high-definition TV, or digital sound system, these features will require an electrical upgrade. A Category 5 twisted pair wire and RG6 quad shielded coaxial cable are usually recommended. Voice and data transmissions will be improved by the Cat-5 and the video will be improved by the RG6. They will enhance the reception and allow for seamless streaming.
An new integrated home network can consolidate all your wiring. To connect all of the wires, a home network puts everything you use into one central hub. Wire then runs directly from this hub to each room, where modular outlets provide access to services. Or even consider wireless networking to connect printers, computers, and other devices without taking up extra outlet space.
