Knob and Tube Wiring Was the Standard Between 1880 and 1930

From the 1880s up to 1930, knob and tube electrical wiring was the common system used in homes. This method has ungrounded wiring and was good enough for a time when not too many electrical gadgets were around. It only worked then because not much amperage was required in average homes.

 

However, as better and more electric appliances were introduced into daily living, more advanced technologies were used to build home electrical systems. If you live in an old home that has an outdated wiring system, get in touch with Reinhart Electric immediately for knob and tube wiring replacement.
