we live in an old house and know we need to upgrade our electrical but dat night all my ceiling lights went out. I'm under a homewire service through my electrical company. i called them on mon and they were supposed to send the order out well i didn't hear from them yesterday so i called back, talked to the same guy who said he would contact them again. i didn't get a call today so i called back and they said they never sent the order out. they finally called me ten minutes ago and said it will be thur or fri next week before thry can come. I'm so ill with my electrical company right now.

It's very frustrating. My house was built in 1962, and last summer we had all our electric rewired. There's no other way around it. Sorry the electric company ignored you. Seems to be common in lots of businesses nowadays.

Did you change over to Duke Energy as well? I think I would keep calling back and tell them how hot the temps are now. Call daily until they get tired of you and go ahead and send someone out.

Yes duke energy. idk what to do. we have no lights in our houde and its very difficult w 4 kids not to mention hubby or i don't know crap about electrical and don't know if it is a fire hazard. its scary. we don't have the cash to pay an electrition to come rewire the whole house. most of it is original and this house is over 200 years old so we know its time. does anyone know if u need a permit in sc to rewire ur own house?

If it's Duke, remind them of the little old lady who lost power in the Upstate back in '04 and died because they didn't respond fast enough - she froze to death. That accident alone caused them to change their disconnection policy.

If it's a local yokel company, good luck.

I am very confused. Did you lose all electricity or just your ceiling fans because of the wiring?

Shoppingfever it was all of the lights in my ceiling. we got a tester and found a wire had come loose. hubby has it fixed but we still have to rewire the whole house. they gave me an estimate $5000-8000. So we went to lowes and bought a book on wiring and r going to work on one room at a time. probably will be a lot of work but save a lot of money.

My area has a program through the electric company where they will rewire or repair the wiring in your home, add insulation to your attic space, and things like that. They finance it and you pay monthly, which is added to your electric bill. A program like that may be available where you live.

Thanks the program we have i pay $3.95 a month and they will repair up to $500 a year in wiring but i think that's all they cover. i really need to check more into it.

You can rewire the house but to actually plug the wire into the fuse box requires an electrician/permit...

Before I met my dh, I moved into my house with my dd 1 at the time, after 3 months of smelling gas I called the gas company and they came and inspected and said my unvented wall mounted heaters were unsafe and needed to be fixed ASAP! I went threw LIHEAP through there program where they came in and weatherized my house. They removed both heaters, replaced my water heater, placed weather paper stuff on dirt floor in crawlspace, fixed two windows, and put in a furnace (including running all new duct work). The company that came were all about speed and while in the attic they had to cut threw a wall (to get to the rest of the house) they cut through my main (with a sawzall- no one got hurt thank goodness) but long story short even though there was an electrician on there staff all they did was splice the wire back together and wrapped black tape around it...
Though I don't know much about electric I knew that wasn't ok! So I called Liheap explained they said well he's a liscenced electrician so we will go by his word. I ended up calling the state they came out said it was unsafe and eventually I got it replaced replaced by liheap but long story short my house also being old (1900) has never had the electric redone so since they cut the main they had to replace it and all wires connecting plus they had to move the breaker box and replace it because it was out of code...

But now I'm building an addition on but before I can do that I have to replace the rest of the wiring which here code states I can replace it I just can't hook it up sorry for long story hth
