KNOB AND TUBE REPLACEMENT
YOUR SAFETY COMES FIRST
Homes built between 1880 and into the late 1940’s that have not been updated usually have obsolete knob and tube wiring.
Makeshift repairs throughout the years and just plain aging increase the risk of electrical fire dramatically in homes wired with knob and tube. For these and more reasons, knob and tube wiring should be replaced by a licensed electrician as soon as possible.
Knob and Tube Wiring Facts
Knob and tube wiring has no ground wire so it can’t be used for 3-pronged appliances.
It is more hazardous than modern wiring because of its age. The wiring is more open, which make it prone to physical damage. Sometimes insulation covers the wires as well, adding to the potential hazard.
Advice for Homeowners with Knob and Tube Wiring
The best way to deal with knob and tube wiring is to replace it entirely. The next best option is to remove as much of the knob and tube wiring as possible and replace it with modern wiring. This will serve to remove as much load on the existing system as possible.

“The first time I met Nick, the owner of Greenway Electric, he was working in my neighbor’s house after Hurricane Sandy. I had connected a generator to my furnace to heat the house and was worried that I hadn’t done it right. Nick was happy to take a look and help me. Since then I’ve done extensive electrical work to 3 houses and have used Greenway every time. Nick is also well-versed in lighting design and can offer suggestions for lighting options. Their work is excellent, the technicians are polite and conscientious and their prices are reasonable. I highly recommend Greenway.” – Eileen K., Montclair, NJ
