What is knob and tube wiring?
Knob and tube wiring is an outdated electrical system that was commonly used in homes built before the 1950s. It consists of individual wires that run through ceramic tubes and are held in place by porcelain knobs. While it was once considered a safe method for electrical wiring, knob and tube wiring is now considered dangerous and outdated due to its inability to handle the electrical demands of modern homes.
Why is knob and tube wiring dangerous?
There are several reasons why knob and tube wiring is considered dangerous, including:
1.Lack of grounding: Knob and tube wiring does not include a grounding wire, which can increase the risk of electrical shock and fire.
2.Insulation deterioration: Over time, the insulation around the wires can deteriorate, which can increase the risk of electrical fires.
3.Overloaded circuits: Knob and tube wiring was not designed to handle the electrical demands of modern homes, which can lead to overloaded circuits and electrical fires.
