When To Rewire Your Home Or Commercial Building
Electrical systems in older homes and commercial buildings were designed at a time when there were fewer appliances and electronics. Today, these older systems are unable to meet the electricity demand of appliances, electronics, HVAC systems, and devices. Updating your system ensures that you can safely use the many devices that we have come to rely on. Our licensed electricians provide rewires in Champaign and Urbana for residential and commercial properties of all sizes.
