KNOB AND TUBE REMOVAL

Electrical Upgrades for Historic Properities

 

If your home is still functioning with knob and tube electrical wiring, it’s time to upgrade. Knob and tube was the standard from the late 1800s until the 1930s. This type of wiring does not have a grounding wire which means that it is unsafe to use in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and other areas which have water hookups. Aside from being dangerous, another disadvantage associated with knob and tube wiring is that it does not meet the electricity needs of the modern household. Then better and more affordable electrical options were introduced after 1950. Although knob and tube may have kept your lights on for many years, the options are better today.
