Knob and tube wiring is the oldest type of residential wiring still remaining in today's homes. When created in the mid-1900s, it was not made to support modern appliances; therefore, knob and tube wiring needs to be inspected regularly or replaced with a more modern type of wiring to ensure safety and functionality in your Montgomery County home. A good rule of thumb is to have your wiring upgraded each time your electrical panel is updated, but more frequent wiring jobs may be needed depending on your specific home.
Why is it so important to have knob and tube wiring checked from time to time? Well, if the wiring is not equipped to handle powering all of your appliances, you may face the following issues:
- Deteriorating insulation
- Improper connections
- Lack of grounding in your electrical system
- Dangerous sparking
- Home fires
- And more
In order to avoid these Montgomery County knob and tube wiring problems, it's essential to have your wiring inspected by a licensed electrician on a regular basis. Knob and tube wiring is hidden inside the walls, making it tricky to deal with. For this reason, you should certainly make sure that your electrician is qualified for the job.
