FAQ: Knob and Tube Replacement in Pennsaucken
Do You Have Knob and Tube Wiring? Replace it Today!
Once upon a time, knob and tube wiring was a popular choice in homes in Pennsaucken and beyond. From about the 1880s until well past the 1930s, many southern New Jersey homes were built using this wiring method. While this method is no longer used today – it’s not only antiquated, but it’s downright dangerous – there are still homes that use knob and tube wiring.
Are you one of those homes? Learn more about it from the experts at Raynor Services!
Q: Why is knob and tube wiring dangerous?
A: Because knob and tube wiring wasn’t meant to feed an entire household of electronics with electricity; after all, in the early 20th century, there weren’t many electrical appliances to begin with at all. Now that we have dishwashers, washers/dryers, computers, and television screens all competing for electricity, knob and tube wiring can become dangerously overloaded.
Q: What can happen?
A: When knob and tube wiring conducts too much electricity, the conductors become dry and sometimes even bare after repetitive use. The overflow of excessive electrical currents causes the installation to crumble away, which leaves the conductors exposed and vulnerable. At this stage, you’re not only at risk for short-circuiting; the odds of you encountering an electrical fire have significantly skyrocketed.
That’s why it’s important to call on a professional electrician to replace your knob and tube wiring in Pennsaucken. That’s why you should call on Raynor Electric Services.
