Rewiring you Home
serving the Ottawa area for over 30 years!
Thinking about rewiring your home in Ottawa? You’ve come to the right place. Mike Fuller Electric has specialized in rewiring homes since 1987. This delicate process may have you apprehensive, but we are here to make this process go as smoothly as possible.
What separates us from other electrical contractors? First and most importantly, the cleanliness and dust mitigation. We use multiple top of line abatement air filters throughout your home. We cover and organize furniture for easy clean up. Working with our customers to keep your home live able is a top priority for us. We are constantly told that damage we make is way less than expected. This comes with years of experience doing rewires from our electricians. We are happy to answer all your questions and concerns throughout the process.
First off let’s talk about knob and tube wiring. If your home was built in the early 1940’s or earlier, there’s a high chance your home has single conductor wiring with ceramic insulators protecting it. You may be able to see this in your basement if the ceiling is unfinished. This type of wiring is very delicate and should not be tampered with. The cloth sheath has most likely become brittle over time. This wiring system also does not have a ground, which can cause a problem for most modern amenities we have in our home today.
Ungrounded wiring came into effect after knob and tube, between the 1940’s and 1960’s. This wiring system closely resembles what we have today except for 1 key ingredient. Yes, the ground again. The conductors are bound together in paper and cloth which protects it much better than its predecessor. This type of wiring leaves us with some other options of protecting our home, although none are a perfect fix like doing a complete rewire.
At Mike Fuller Electric we pride ourselves on our ability to complete your electrical needs efficiently.
It’s important we offer upfront pricing because no one wants last minute pricing surprises. Knowing the fee of your electrical requirements, provides you with financial satisfaction and assurance.
We offer suitable appointment booking that fits your schedule.
