Do you have knob and tube wiring in your home?
It was a common electrical system installed in homes from the early 1900’s to the 1960’s. The original designers were trying to be safe by using less electricity, but it turns out that they didn’t account for how much power we now use today.
Nowadays, this type of wiring is considered hazardous because it doesn’t offer protection against shocks or fires like modern systems do. If you want to know more about what knob and tube wiring is and if your home has it, scroll down! You might not know it, but your home could be filled with knob and tube wiring.
If you have an older home in the United States (or Canada), there’s a good chance that at least some of it is still live and functioning. This isn’t necessarily bad – after all, Edison invented this system over 100 years ago! But don’t let its age fool you into thinking that it’s safe or reliable. DCL can help update your homes wiring so that it is top-notch.
