Homes built today are dramatically different than they were 40 years ago. Not only are they larger, but they have more amenities that can severely stress your electrical system. ESFI recommends all homes over 40 years old undergo an electrical inspection to ensure your home’s electrical system can handle modern demands. The inspector can also recommend updates to comply with the latest National Electrical Code ® and help protect the people and things you care about most.
This illustrated guide highlights the differences between modern homes and those that were built over 40 years ago while emphasizing the importance of modernizing your electrical system to keep up with evolving demands.
