Low Voltage Rewire

There’s only one time when a home can get the best infrastructure for the lowest cost: during construction. We’be been installing low-voltage cabling systems for years and seen them evolve from the old basic job to today’s structured wiring standards. Understanding the needs not only of today, but tomorrow, requires a low-voltage specialist, and we are it. Most electrical contractors see this very important part of a home as a “necessary evil”, because it is not easy to do properly, and requires special tools, equipment, materials, and frequent training to stay current. UBT Pros has become a “right-hand” to many of these electrical contractors when it comes to low-voltage cabling because it is our specialty. Not only do we help “future-proof” your home, preventing obsolescence, but we “qualify” each cable. This makes certain each cable passes the high-speed data and RF signals needed by modern and future electronic systems. What happens if a cable is defective or is damaged after installation? We can tell you this before the walls are finished, in time for a proper solution. We are the residential low-voltage specialists.

Prewire wiring for all systems it is very important to make sure this happens before insulation and walls are closed up for obvious reasons. Electronic components should be finished only when all of the other major work is completed to avoid damage.

Structured Wiring Supports the Systems in your Home

Whether you're re-wiring your home or simply installing a home entertainment system or computer network, it's important to hire a low voltage contractor who will get the job done properly. It is more often a good idea to hire a dedicated low voltage contractor rather than an electrician. These low voltage contractors will be up to date on all the latest changes in whole house and related technology. In many construction trades most people, including electricians, are unfamiliar with the new products and technologies that are available for a low voltage system or technologies outside their core expertise. The following several paragraphs will help you to understand some of the “need-to-knows” when it comes to wiring your home:

The National Electrical Code (NEC) prescribes the following properties of the wire to be used in your walls:
1. Reduce the spread of fire and smoke.
2. Prevent shock
3. Comply with other requirements of the NEC

Control Systems

Many of these systems can be extremely sophisticated and require professional installation and proprietary wiring. Our most consistent recommendation is to use at least CAT5e wiring for the control system. You should always consider 16/4 & Dual CAT-5e or CAT-6 for more sophisticated systems or in instances where you want to distribute telecommunications as well as IR (infrared) and speaker level audio.

Remember to wire bathrooms, hallways and outdoor areas. There is no reason that whole-house audio/video should not extend to these often overlooked areas. Even if you don't plan on installing equipment at every location right away, make sure you run the cables to that location. It will save you money and time in the long run.

Structured Wiring

Refers to running wires through the walls of your home to organize and integrate the various systems in your home. Cable or satellite TV, telephone, security, climate control, Ethernet and audio/video systems all rely upon and support each other in an advanced structured wiring system. It is important to note that even wireless technology can perform poorly or even fail without a well thought out structured wiring system, designed to support and extend the wireless devices and their capabilities to communicate.
