Understanding Knob and Tube Wiring

  • A Relic of the Past

Knob and tube wiring was commonly used in North American homes from the late 1800s through the mid-20th century. It consists of ceramic knobs and tubes that support and insulate electrical wires. While innovative for its time, it lacks the safety features and capacity required for modern electrical demands.

  • Potential Hazards

Knob and tube wiring poses several risks, including:

  • Limited Capacity: It may not support the power needs of contemporary appliances and electronics.
  • Inadequate Insulation: The lack of modern insulation can lead to electrical shocks and fire hazards.
  • Aging Components: Over time, knobs, tubes, and wires can deteriorate, increasing the risk of electrical issues.
