Electrical Upgrades that Add Value to Your Home
When people think of upgrading their homes, they usually envision putting on a new roof or renovating a kitchen, but electrical upgrades are also a great way to add value - and often aesthetic appeal - to your residence. Check out the top three ways to do it.
- Replace the switches and outlets.This is an inexpensive and
easy way to instantly upgrade the aesthetics in your home.
Bright white, brand new outlets and switches can make your house
feel like new. If you're interested in technology, you can also
choose to include automation-friendly outlets and switches so you
can control everything from your phone.
- Upgrade your electrical panel.If you have an older panel and
plan to sell your home any time in the near future, there's a good
chance that you will be asked to pay for a new panel anyway. But,
this upgrade is about more than resell value; an older electrical
panel could cause a shortage and potentially result in a fire. With
so many high-power electronics in homes today, you want a panel
that can handle the load.
- Add recessed lighting.Recessed lighting offers a mix of functionality and modern design that makes it a must-have for home buyers today. It also cuts back on the number of cords around the home and plugs in outlets, which can reduce tripping hazards and the overuse of electrical outlets.
There are a lot of ways to add value to your home through electrical upgrades. If you need an inspection or home rewiring, set up an appointment with our certified electricians. Call David Gray Electrical Services at (904) 724-7211.
