The old knob and tube wiring does look pretty cool but it must go. One of many upgrades to come at the #nsbnewton project. #nsbuilders #designbuildrepeat #knobandtube #shocking #keepcraftalive #newtonma #renovation #carpenter

Knob and tube wiring (K&T) is something that many home buyers have heard of but have never seen. Here is a classic example - ceramic knobs and tubes are used to isolate and route wires through the house. Hot and neutral wires are separated and no ground wires are present. This presents numerous safety issues: the house is not grounded, wires have cloth insulation which has broken down over time, and wires are generally smaller sizes than modern wires for the same amperage. When house insulation is added around the wires, the wires run hotter, causing fires; additionally, in many situations, modern wiring is spliced into the k&t, which damages the original wires and can lead to fires. Few insurance companies will insure a house with k&t, so it generally requires replacement before the house can be sold! . . #homeinspection #homeinspector #njhomeinspector #realestate #njrealestate #forsale #houseforsale #oldhouse #electricity #electric #electrical #knobandtube #danger #lifesafety #fire

Show of hands: who has vintage knob and tube wiring in their house? This old porch switch is the last holdout in my 1860 home. We rewired the house when we moved in, including pulling out some crusty old (but beautiful) wall sconces. But this one ceiling fan switch is a holdout because of the disproportionately huge job it would have been to change it (ripping up wood paneled walls and ceiling). Plus, the positive and negative wires are clearly far from each other, and in great condition, so the risk of a short is not really more likely here than with new wiring. The old timer electricians will tell you the new codes are b.s. anyway. 😋 If we ever do rewire it, Im thinking Ill keep this all here anyway because I love how it looks. . . . #oldhouselove #history #vintage #knobandtube #whitewalls #whitepaint #woodpaneling #oldporch #porchlove #antique #howivintage #walldecor #currentdesignsituation #instavintage #1860house #maine #igersmaine #maine_igers #antiquestyle #patina #myafh #myhomevibe #thisoldhouse #mybeautifulmess #oldtimer #oldhome #fwi718 #kateaiellodesign

This was a very cool find today. Old electric heater installed in an old staircase used for a plumbing chase. Used to prevent pipes from freezing in the cold winter months. #newhampshire #electricianlife #knobandtube #electricheat

So we don’t always get to do what we want or choose how our clients spend their money... second floor was rewired and is having a bathroom done but basically left alone otherwise. The new receptacle ended up in the drywall and the baseboard needed a puck to fill in where the old plug was... I’ll stand behind my plugging this plug hole forever and a day. Call it cringe worthy, call it whatever you want, it’s reality for us and the homeowners while renovating sometimes... and yes it’s a challenge, it was easy.... you know the rest... #chippy #hammersinmotion #carpenter #oldhouse #knobandtube #knobanddude

Cant wait to refurbish these beauties and sprinkle them around the house. . . . #historicblvdproject #nohvac #knobandtube #plasterwalls #GeorgianStyleHome #homerenovation #HistoricPreservation #Historicrenovation #antique #reupholstery #1930house

Anyone want to guess what these are? Original to my 1926 house. Hint: we removed them and replaced them with that beautiful new electric panel I posted about earlier 😉 . #dupieredo #thingsimlearning #knobandtube

And this, my friends, is what we call knob and tube. 😬⚡️ #adventuresinrealestate

Phil and I had an argument about leaving up the old non-functional knob and tube wires. In the end we compromised with leaving up two knobs. A hidden gem for the next people who open the walls. #knobandtubewiring #knobandtube #bathroomreno #reno #demolition

In houses with knob and tube wiring, you will often get false voltage readings with a ticker. This appeared to be newer wiring but it was tapped off old. The box had a slight induced voltage and when I touched my hand to it, my ticker on the table was reading positive. An easy way to determine if a circuit is really off is with a wiggy, and if a neutral isn’t present, you can hold the outer insulation to get rid of induced voltage. #sparky #electricity #wacky #science #worldofelectricians #oldhouse #thisoldhouse #lightfixtures #lightfixture #rhodeisland #electrician #wiring #knobandtube #remodel #renovation
