Knob & Tube Wire Replacement
The place togo
for knob & tube electrical wiring replacement
Knob and tube wiring revolutionized the world that we live in, and while it has many detractors – it was built to last. This electrical system was installed in homes between 1900-1955 (approximately), and there are homes in our community that are still being powered by this system today – perhaps even your home is one of them.
While knob and tube electrical wiring was cutting edge in its day, it is now considered a risky way to power your home. The system is ungrounded and open air, predating all wire insulation safety code rules, and scales poorly when new devices or power demands are incorporated into it. Today’s devices or appliances pull more electrical current than what the wires were created for causing the old wires to heat up and become a fire hazard.
Because of these reasons, and more, there are many insurance providers that will no longer provide insurance coverage to homes that have this older method of wiring.
