Knob and tube wiring was one of the first types of standardized wiring for buildings. It was used mainly between the 1880’s and 1930’s, which makes it one of the oldest forms of electrical wiring. If your home was built before the 1930’s, it likely had knob and tube wiring. If your home still has knob and tube wiring, it should be replaced as soon as possible.
Knob and tube wiring has many risks:
If you have knob and tube wiring in your home, it could seem to be working fine right up until the point when something goes drastically wrong. Because you can’t see behind your walls, it’s often difficult to determine if you have a problem, and there is no way for you to determine when a problem might occur, or what kind of hazard it will be.
