Many homes sold before 1940 are wired with knob and tube wiring. This was popular from about 1880 until the early 1940s. These systems don't have a ground wire, so they are not protected in the event of a fault. The wires were also insulated with rubber, which is not as safe as plastic. This type of system requires an electrical rewiring. The problems with knob and tube wiring include:

  • Degradation: The wiring breaks down too easily
  • Dangerous combinations: Some homes have combinations of old and new wiring
  • Electrical demand: These older systems were not designed for today's usage
  • Poor connections: Many connections were not done securely
  • Old rubber: The rubber insulation breaks down over time and is not safe
  • Incorrect receptacles: The outlets with this system are also not grounded

These are just some of the reasons why old wiring can lead to a whole-home rewiring project. Don't risk living with an unsafe electrical wiring system- contact ELM Electric to discuss your electrical rewiring options.
