While this ‘plug and go’ mindset may be easy, the certified electricians at Jack Lehr Heating, Cooling & Electric want our patrons to understand that outdated outlets can cost you in a number of ways. Outdated outlets can cost you money, they can cost you time, and they carry the potential to cost you your property.
We’ll skip the lectures and fear mongering, but there are some very clear signs that indicate a need for an outlet upgrade, and failure to do so might lead to some troubles! The signs are indicative of a few issues, but all of them boil down to the same point: If you notice any of these, it’s time for an upgrade:
Aside from obvious malfunction or damage, there are a number of reasons why upgrading your electrical is just a good idea in general. It’s important to note that technology evolves extremely rapidly, and an outdated home cannot take advantage of that tech effectively.
Without consistent upgrades, you may be paying more than you need to for inefficient energy use, or you might be stunting the effectiveness of your electricity. Older homes and electrical systems often host minimal amp capacity, meaning you could see flickering lights and power, frequent breaker flips and shorting appliances. Staying ahead of the curve will save stress and time in the future!
