According to the top-rated electricians on Angie's List, homes that are more than 50 years old are more at risk for potentially dangerous electrical problems. These issues can be caused by dated knob-and-tube or aluminum wiring components throughout the home. These experts say it may be time for a full- home electrical remodel if:

  1. You see - charred or discolored outlets and switches in the home
  2. You hear - a sizzling sound coming from your electrical panel
  3. You smell - a persistent burning smell from your circuit breaker box
  4. You notice - frequently tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses

If you've noticed the signs, don't wait to call an electrical contractor.
