Santa Barbara Wiring & Rewiring
An Electrical System That Meets Today's Needs
Old and worn-out electrical components are a safety hazard for you and your home, not just because of their aging parts but because they can no longer keep up with today's technology. Your home may not have enough outlets for all the appliances, and using extension cords only puts more unnecessary wear and tear on your system. Laughlin Electric provides expert wiring and rewiring in Santa Barbara, backed by extensive knowledge and skill. Our team has 30 years of experience providing services that our community can trust.
When Should I Rewire My Home?
We understand that your home is essential to you, so we want it to be safe for long-lasting use. There are a few signs to look out for when considering rewiring.
If your electrical system meets any of these requirements, it's time to rewire your home:
- Original wiring
- Burning smell
- Flickering lights
- Multiple extension cords
If your home is over 30 years old, your original wiring is outdated and broken down. These degraded components lead to other problems like shorts, arcs, and electrical fires. Exposed or loose wiring may create sparks, and you'll notice a burning smell near outlets or your electrical panel. If you use multiple extension cords, your current system doesn't meet your technological needs. This is also true if you experience flickering lights when you plug in other high-energy appliances.
Don't hesitate to call Laughlin Electric for expert wiring and rewiring in Santa Barbara so your home can continue to meet your and your family's needs. Rewiring makes your home safer and can add value to your property if you're considering selling. This investment prevents fires, increases energy efficiency, minimizes power outages, and makes your home more functional than ever. Homes built before 1971 aren't equipped with GFCI outlets in areas where water can short out your outlets. This is only one example of the lack of safety features in homes built 30 years ago or longer.

Wiring Home Accessories
Technology continues to improve daily, and we believe your home should improve with it.
This may include you adding additional accessories like:
- Smart home technology: This can create a more functional daily routine in your home with voice-activated light switches, speakers, and blinds. Other smart home technologies include security systems, programmable appliances, and lights you can control from your phone.
- Accessory dwelling units (ADUs): Wiring a guest house, attic, or basement allows you to create a secondary living space for guests, young adults, and elderly family members who may benefit from a private area.
- Outdoor lighting: Outdoor lighting can improve security, set the mood for entertaining, or light the path to your home. Creating a relaxing and warm outdoor space can make entertaining friends or playing yard games with your family a breeze.
- At-home theater: Adding an at-home theater brings the movie experience to you, so you don't have to worry about people you don't know talking in the middle of an important scene. Personalize the movie theater experience with an at-home theater built around your preferences.
Adding this technology to your home can make it more functional, relaxing, and enjoyable for the whole family; however, you must trust an experienced team with these updates.
