Replacing the Breakers
Replacing a Spliced Wire
I am currently residing in a house built in 1955. Old houses require a great deal of maintenance.
A few months ago we had an inspectore look at the wiring. I mention this as it is possible that the inspector yanked on a wire and caused a problem.
There was a blackout in our neighborhood. After the blackout, we started having a large number of problems. The house would suffer periods of flickering. We even started having power surges and periodic black outs.
One needs to replace electrical equipment every so often; So we decided to replace the exterior and interior breakers.
This was quite a chore that involved removing a cabinet, expanding the hole in the side of the house for the expanded wire.
The repair cost $5.500. The repair got rid of the flickering and I feel safer.
