Knob and tube wiring is a method of electrical wiring that was popular from the late 1800s to the 1940s — a common occurrence in Greater Boston area homes. However, electrical methods have advanced significantly since then, rendering knob and tube obsolete and even dangerous.
If the dangers aren’t reason enough to remove knob and tube wiring, consider that it’s nearly impossible to insulate, insure, or mortgage a home with knob and tube. Although there are band-aid fixes, the best solution is knob and tube removal and replacement. Not only does it guarantee a safer house, but it’s a smart investment that adds significant value to your home. Knob and tube removal is a good idea in the long term to accommodate for future electrical needs and for reselling purposes.
Knob and tube removal isn’t an easy job, and may take 1-3 weeks depending on the size and construction of your house. It requires an in-depth diagnostic of your home by an expert technician.
