How to Rewire Your 1920s Home Without Burning it Down

Assess the Electrical System

Before beginning any rewiring project, it's crucial to fully assess the existing electrical system in your 1920s home. This will help you understand what needs to be updated and how invasive the rewiring project needs to be.

Create a Rewiring Plan

Once you've thoroughly assessed the electrical system, create a rewiring plan based on the home's needs.

Safely Running New Wiring

When it's time to run the new electrical wiring, focus on doing it safely and properly. Rushing this stage often leads to shoddy or dangerous work.

Update Devices and Fixtures

The final step is installing updated outlets, switches, lighting fixtures and wiring accessories to utilize the new electrical system.

By methodically approaching each stage of the rewiring project, you can modernize your 1920s home's electrical system safely without burning it down! Patience and proper process are key.
