Knob and Tube Wiring

If you watch any sort of home-improvement show (self-proclaimed HGTV addict here!), you’ve heard the term “knob and tube wiring”. This type of wiring can be found in older homes, if they haven’t been updated. This type of wiring served its purpose back in the day when the only real electrical needs were lighting. But, today, we need electricity for many, many more things (iPads, smart phones, TVs … you name it!). That’s why it’s important to update electrical to today’s standards and codes.

If you are thinking of buying an older home (or already live in one), West Bend has some items for you to consider (including reasons that knob and tube has become problematic).
