Eliminating the Risk of Fire
Any type of wiring that is old and falling apart is at risk of causing a fire, but knob and tube wiring can especially be at higher risk. It’s not inherently dangerous on its own, but if a DIY homeowner ever jimmy rigs the system, or if insulation is installed over deteriorating knob and tube wiring, your home can be at risk. Replacing the knob and tube systems can fully eliminate that high risk as it relates to your old, outdated electrical wiring.
Replaced With Modern, Safe Wiring
Many advancements have been made when it comes to electrical wiring—especially in new home builds. Knob and tube wiring worked well for many decades, but with all of the appliances and electronics used today, it just can’t do the job. Replacing it with modern, safe wiring that fits today’s standards and regulations is essential to limiting risk, but also to maintain a highly efficient home electrical system. Most likely you will see lower energy bills and peace of mind knowing you can safely use all of your electronics without overloading the circuit.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the major issues with knob and tube wiring?
Three major issues with knob and tube wiring is that it is very outdated, with no ground wire, and insulation cannot be installed over it. Knob and tube systems are not used in new homes anymore since they do not have the ability to support modern appliances.
How can I maintain my existing knob and tube wiring?
Knob and tube wires are low risk for fires when maintained correctly. Inspect knob and tube wiring frequently for damage, discoloration of insulation around outlets, or if the circuit breaker trips often when using appliances on it. If you find any knob and tube wiring issues in your home call a licensed electrician to repair knob and tube wires immediately before replacing them with modern wiring systems.
Will my walls have to be gutted to replace knob and tube wiring?
Nope! New wiring can be installed without tearing out any existing walls or insulation, but all of the existing knob and tube wiring will have to be removed first, which can take some additional time.

Excellent! They saved me thousands by fixing the broken refrigerant line. Other places would have pushed me to get a new HVAC. The a/c is only 9 years old so I am thrilled that they were able to fix it. This is where experience and skills…Rita S.
