Replacing Knob and Tube Wiring in Wilmette, IL

The low cost of knob and tube wiring made it a popular choice for electrical work in the early 1900s. So if your home was built after 1950, it’s unlikely to include this kind of wiring. However, if you have an older home we strongly recommend upgrading its wiring as both a safety measure and to improve the electrical capabilities of your home.

Knob and tube wiring consists of just two wires, hot and neutral, both protected by a thin sheath of rubberized cloth fabric. If the wires fray, they may become a fire hazard, especially in unfinished basements or attics where the wires aren’t concealed behind a wall. Modern wiring adds a third, grounded wire, which minimizes both shock and fire risks.

Additionally, the electrical systems in homes with knob and tube wiring were only designed to handle 60 amps. When you realize that a toaster might require 10 amps, you can see why 60 amps aren’t enough for a whole home. Today, most homes provide a minimum of 100 amps to meet our growing electrical needs.

Replacing knob and tube wiring in your Wilmette, IL home requires cutting holes in your walls and ceilings. So you’ll also need to hire a painting contractor to patch the holes. Once we’ve replaced your wiring, a local inspector will need to certify that it’s up to code. Thankfully, our commitment to quality craftsmanship ensures that our work will pass any kind of inspection.
