» Will You Use All-Copper Wiring For Any New Installation?
Although 14-gauge wire is allowed in many circuits it’s smart to install 12-gauge wiring, but that might cost you more. This cost making it safer and more energy-efficient.

» Will the entire house needs to be rewired?
Unless you’re living in old homes, you probably won’t have to replace with the existing electric lines. However, if you require new electrical capacity then you need new wiring in certain rooms – not the entire house.

» Can You Provide References From Other Homeowners?
To know more about the work of the electrician, you better ask the electrician to provide references of previous homeowners with whom he/she have worked with.
