Professional Interbay Electrical Contractor
Old wiring often called knob and tube wiring, is not only inefficient but poses a serious fire hazard. Back in the 30's, 40's and 50's when this type of wiring was installed, the demand for current was low. Today's electricity demands are a hundred times what they were 50 years ago.
Not sure if you have knob and tube in your house? Go down to your Interbay basement and take a look at the ceiling. If you see white knobs affixed to your joists with electrical wire snaking through them, you have knob and tube wiring. The knobs (or insulators) keep the wires isolated from objects, and the ceramic tubes are used to line the holes through the wooden floor joists.
The old Interbay knob and tube wiring was a great system for the time as it was originally designed to carry modest currents. Today, however, the electrical demands for the average family are considerably greater. Fifty years ago there were no microwaves , air conditioners, toasters, or computers in the home. This puts an enormous strain on the old style of wiring. Have your Interbay electrician from Hart's Home Services make sure all the wiring in your Interbay home is safe for you and your family. Having and Interbay electrician come out and inspect your home could save you time and money in the future by detecting electrical safety hazards early.
