    If your electrical wiring is just old, deteriorating and or wore out then no, homeowners insurance does  not cover electrical wiring. However if the wiring, arcs or causes a house fire then yes, homeowners insurance does cover the damage to the dwelling caused by the electrical wiring. I will call your local agent to discuss the specifics of your question or re-post with more detail as to what you are looking for.

    Electrical wiring would only be covered if it is damaged by a covered peril.  Homeowners insurance does not pay to replace out dated wiring or renovation of wiring.  Homeowners insurance is not designed as a maintenance policy.  It is designed to protect you from unforeseeable events such as fire, wind damage, lightning strikes and similar perils.
