The home wiring should not be an afterthought. Especially when you consider the amount of technology a home has today. In fact, wiring in a home today is more important than homeowners might think. That’s because homes without this basic infrastructure are obsolete before the drywall is hung. From new homes to existing ones, proper wiring of a home can mean the difference between having systems and smart devices that communicate with each other or not. For example, while an all-wireless configuration seems great, it will cost you bandwidth and that means internet speed!
For those looking enhance their networks, home wiring or structured wiring is what needs to be considered. That’s because structured wiring is the communications infrastructure within a home, that provides a pathway for data, phone, and TV signals. It also provides the advantage of faster network speeds because it allows you to wire your equipment leaving you more bandwidth to stream. From planning to installation for audio and video, home theater, security, surveillance, and home automation with the right wiring in place you can save space.
So, whether you are building a new home or embarking on a retrofit, the good news is, structured wiring can be installed anytime. In fact, you can route wires through the attic and in walls. In addition, wires and cables can be run along the exterior of a home when necessary.
