Does Knob & Tube Wiring Need to Be Replaced?
There’s really no telling if knob and tube wiring poses an imminent risk today, tomorrow, or five years from now. One thing we do know for sure is that buildings with knob and tube systems are more likely to suffer an electrical fire.
Knob and tube wiring was most commonly used for electrical wiring from the 1900s to the 1960s and is not permitted in any newly constructed buildings – residential or commercial.
The dangers of knob and tube include:
- Ungrounded wires may shock people and damage appliances
- Exposed wires that are uninsulated or have lost insulation may overheat, fail, or spark a fire
- Overloaded knob and tube systems
