Knob and Tube Replacement
From the late 1890s, knob and tube wiring was used in homes. Porcelain knobs were used to hold the wire in place and tubes were used to bring the wiring through wooden joists. In knob and tube wiring, hot and neutral wires were used and there was no ground wire. Presently, it is considered obsolete and is found mostly in homes that were built before the 1950s.
Because of no ground wire, there is a higher possibility of electrical shock. Moreover, the knob and tube is highly susceptible to mechanical or physical damage. Any deterioration of wiring insulation poses a fire hazard. To overcome such concerns, it is advised to hire our electricians for knob and tube replacement.
