Before you begin wiring an old house, you should plan your electrical project carefully. To help you find the best solution for your home, we have a few tips that should make things easier for you.

The first thing you need to do is to list all the appliances and devices that need to be connected to the electrical circuit. This way, you will know what type of wiring is required and how many wiring runs are needed. If your electrical system is outdated, then it may not be able to handle the electricity needs of your entire house. In this case, you may need to upgrade it.

Wiring an old house can be a daunting and dangerous task. If you are up to the challenge, there are some tips that can help you wire your own old house:

  • Obtain a permit if necessary.
  • 2.Research local building codes.
  • Make a diagram of the wiring in your home.
  • Turn off all power to your home and test for dead wires with a voltage tester before touching any wires or devices.
  • Wire one circuit at a time and label all wires before disconnecting them from the existing device, outlet or junction box they are connected to.
  • Install the new circuit starting at the service panel and working toward any new devices, outlets or junction boxes in the circuit.
  • Install proper grounding or bonding wire as required by code from each device and outlet back to the service panel and connect it to the grounding bus inside the panel box with appropriate wire connectors as needed for each circuit application (there is typically more than one grounding bus in the service panel).
