Knob and Tube Wiring in Richmond
Knob and tube wiring is the original wiring method used from the late 1800s until approximately 1945. It is a system that involved stringing individual conductor insulated wire across porcelain insulators called “knobs,” and through other porcelain insulators called “tubes.”
If not installed or alter correctly, knob and tube wiring can be a hazard to your homes safety and can have greater chances for electrocution or electrical fire. The two main weaknesses in knob and tube wiring is the lack of ground conductor and switches were often placed on the neutral wire, turning off the circuit, but not the current.
