Electrical Wiring

Average Lifespan

50-70 years

Many electrical appliances require an electrical wiring upgrades with higher voltage outlets, such as EV chargers, induction stoves, and most heat pumps and heat pump water heaters.

If you hire an electrician for one electrification project in your home, pre-install additional circuits and outlets for appliances you’re planning to electrify in the future!

How does it work?

Along with your electrical panel, electrical wiring is a critical enabling step for whole-home electrification. While some electric appliances — including 120V heat pump water heaters and 120V window-unit heat pumps — can plug into a normal outlet, many others require 240V connections. This is especially important for EV chargers, induction stoves, and most heat pumps and heat pump water heaters.

If you’re upgrading your panel, or hiring an electrician for one electrification project in your home, that’s a great time to install additional dedicated circuits and outlets for appliances you might want to electrify in the future. Then, when your next fossil fuel appliance needs to be replaced, the circuit and wiring will be ready to go and you will save money and time because you won’t need to hire an electrician.
