I tried to get a link to this but only an abstract is available.
An article in the spring 2004 nec digest states the following:
"Most of the electrical wiring systems that went into homes in the 1960s, '50s and '40s are at - or close to - the end of their design life."
Also "Some electricians use a rule of thumb that says 30-year-old wiring should be replaced since it is difficult to predict how badly it may age."
Now that you have this information are you going to pass this on to your clients? ![icon_question.gif](upload://t2zemjDOQRADd4xSC3xOot86t0m.gif)
nec digest is the Official Magazine of the NEC.
