If you’ve noticed that the wiring in your home’s attic and basement runs through a series of ceramic knobs and tubes, you have what’s known as” knob & tube” wiring.
Aside from the inconvenience of not being able to use modern appliances with three-pronged plugs in your home, knob & tube wiring poses an even greater problem to homeowners of which you might not be aware.
Homes with knob & tube wiring are difficult or even impossible to insure because they are perceived as a risk by most major insurers.
Press Electric can help you replace your knob and tube wiring with modern 3-wire grounded circuits, replacing all of your old outlets with new 3-pronged grounded outlets.
A certificate of inspection and compliance from a licensed electrician will then be available to you upon request.
