Residential Electrical Issues Throughout the Years

Throughout the years electricians have used a wide variety of electrical techniques and materials to complete their work. Many of which have been deemed unsafe for modern construction standards.

The timeline to the right outlines major electrical issues and the year of home that may be impacted. Most homes built before the 1980’s do not have sufficient electrical systems to handle modern electrical load needs and will need updated to adhere to current code regulations and NEC safety standards.

If you have a home that was built during any of these time frames you will want to make sure those issues have been resolved or have a Spokane electrician evaluate your electrical system for safety.
