Wires and electrical components can, in fact, be very durable and long-lasting. However, simple everyday use will eventually cause wear-and-tear that you may or may not even be able to notice without consulting a professional. While powering much of the things we use across our everyday lives, the electrical currents pulsing through your home's wires and devices also create heat, which in turn causes expansion and contraction of the materials involved. Over time, wires can become brittle because of this - and in severe cases, break and short out - which can render your power consumption anywhere from inefficient to not working at all, while simultaneously creating a fire risk. Let Nordeast Electric assess the wiring situation in your home and suggest the proper solution to provide you with the safest living environment, while also living up to your everyday needs!
