Re: A house full of old sockets . . . how to fix it?
Don't take this the wrong way .... I would strongly recommend you contact an electrician as soon as you can for your family's well being.
we're in a 1905 rowhouse
live there with two small children and a dog
there are nowhere near enough outlets in the house - and indeed, many of the ones that do exist are in wierd spots or don't work at all. Even worse, most of them are run on the outside of the wall (rather than behind the walls)-
giggling the connections, the lights in the kitchen (the next room) flashed
what does this mean?
obviously, i'm fairly clueless. . . any advice is appreciated
It sounds as though you have a hodge podge of wiring inside the home and sounds scarey.
