Remcon Low Voltage Electric - Upgrade Options?
 
Hello - I'm looking for recommendations, suggestions, or any comments about a situation I recently encountered. The house I'm working on has a Remcon low voltage electric system that was probably installed in the mid-60's. The fixtures, receptacles, and relays are very old and out of date and I'm wondering what options I might have for upgrading the electric? Gutting the house is not the preferred option, it's about 3200 sq ft and there is an attic and basement. Relays are distributed around the house.

Any suggestions / recommendations would be appreciated.

Thank you!

I would recommend getting rid of the low voltage system and rewiring the house just fish in all the wiring like normal the house does not need to be gutted .

First of all....great name. Does everything work? The fixtures are still 120 volts, the controls are low voltage. So as long as everything works, you can replace the fixtures. The switches may be another issue, since I believe they are momentary contact. If cost is an issue you can replace things as they become inoperative. www.kyledesigns.com
