Knob & Tube Remediation by Chesapeake Electric

SKILLFULLY REPLACING KNOB AND TUBE WIRING IN YOUR HOME

What Is Knob and Tube Wiring?

Common Problems with Knob and Tube Wiring

While the original installation of knob and tube wiring is at times superior to modern Romex wiring and the porcelain components have an almost unlimited lifespan, there are several disadvantages to this dated wiring method:

  • Though not inherently dangerous, knob and tube wiring is not permitted in any new construction due to the fact that it can be a fire hazard in buildings where insulation envelops the wiring.
  • Insulation cannot be blown or laid on this wiring.
  • K&T is also an ungrounded electrical system, which means it cannot be used with 3-prong appliances. Without a grounding wire, there is a higher risk of electrical fires and damage to sensitive equipment.
  • In addition, most homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover electrical hazards in homes where knob and tube wiring is found, increasing your out of pocket expenses should your home ever have an electrical problem.
