Homeowners throughout Colorado invest a significant amount in home improvement projects. One thing they often overlook is their home’s wiring. Many houses have wiring that was installed several decades ago. Wiring, like other electrical components, will eventually deteriorate and become damaged with age.

If you own an older home, you might be more prone to problems with your electrical system, especially if the wiring is old or damaged. Understandably, many homeowners don’t realize when they have bad wiring, since wiring is generally unseen. It’s important to keep an eye out for any indication that it’s time to replace your wiring.
There are several signs that could indicate you have faulty wiring, including:
- Flickering or dimming lights
- Buzzing lamps
- Switches and outlets that shock
- Circuit tripping constantly
- Burning odor
- Hot outlets
- Frayed wiring
If you notice one or more of these electrical issues, be sure to call a professional electrician right away. Addressing wiring problems sooner rather than later can help prevent electrocution and electrical fires.

Because all houses are different, the price to rewire a home can vary from house to house. Homes with fewer walls and simple layouts typically cost far less than those with lots of walls and a floor plan that has numerous twists and turns.
There are many factors that influence the cost of rewiring a house, including:
- Size and age of your house
- Cost of materials used in the rewiring project
- Ease of access to old wiring
- Whether rewiring is part of a renovation project
- Amount of labor required
- Individual wiring needs
One of the best times to rewire a house is when you are already conducting major renovations. If you are taking some rooms down to the studs, you should strongly consider whether rewiring would be necessary any time soon. If so, taking care of the wiring now can significantly reduce the cost of the project.
