The Right Kind of Wiring for a Home Installation
Many wiring materials are available for homeowners these days, and it can be difficult to tell the difference without years of training. However, it is helpful to know some of the general distinctions to make a proper selection, especially when starting construction from the ground up. Depending on where the wiring is going to be installed, as well as its purpose, residents will require different wires to perform distinct tasks.
For example, “non-metallic” or NM wire is particularly common to find inside a house. For this wire, at least two wires are coated with a strong cover of plastic, hence its name. The cable holds at least a neutral wire in addition to a current wire, and often a ground wire too. Other parts of the home, like garages, crawl spaces, and other unfinished places will require different wires, such as THHN or THWN insulated wiring. These wires have unique color coding, so they do not get mixed with other wiring. Although this can be very complicated, having a knowledgeable electrician on hand can clarify these terms and when they are used.
When Is It Time to Rewire a House?
If residents start to experience problems in their electrical network, it is important to have these checked out right away. When the wires are not replaced quickly, they will not only lead to continually tripped breakers but could even cause electrical shock or fires.
Signs that it is time to rewire your home include:
- A continual smell of burning metal or melted rubber
- Sockets and switches that have changed color (often brown, yellow, or black)
- Outlets that looked scorched around the edges
- Breakers that are repeatedly tripped or fuses that are consistently blown
- Lights that will suddenly dim and get bright again
- Sockets that are loose or hanging out of the outlet
- Strange crackling noises coming from the wires
- Visible signs of frayed, chewed, or cut wiring
