Once a standard in electrical wiring, knob and tube wiring was prevalent in homes built before the 1950s. This system, characterized by its porcelain knobs and tubes, lacks the grounding capabilities of modern wiring and poses several safety hazards, including fire risks due to its age and deterioration over time.
At Little Electric Inc., we understand the importance of updating your home's electrical system. A professional assessment by our experienced electricians can determine if your property still uses knob and tube wiring and needs an upgrade.
Removing knob and tube wiring and replacing it with modern, grounded electrical wiring is a crucial step towards enhancing the safety and capacity of your home’s electrical system. The rewiring process involves replacing old wires with new, high-capacity cables that meet current safety standards. This not only reduces the risk of electrical fires but also supports modern appliances and electronics.
