Knob & Tube PSA

PSA: Knob and tube wiring is an outdated electrical system that was commonly used in homes built prior to the 1940s. While it was once considered a reliable method of wiring, it is now considered dangerous due to its inability to handle modern electrical demands. The system has ceramic knobs that hold wires in place and insulated tubes that protect wires when they pass through wood framing. The insulation on these wires can degrade over time, causing exposed wires that can cause electrical shocks or fires. Also, knob and tube wiring is not grounded, which can result in electrical surges and dangerous arcing. It is highly recommended that homeowners have their knob and tube wiring inspected and replaced by a licensed electrician. Call for Fowler Home Inspections for your home inspection today!!
