Knob & Tube wiring was widely used in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, when there were limited electrical appliances and usage was restricted. This type of electrical wiring consisted of wires being braided together, then wrapped with electrical tape and placed inside of walls. Here at Philip M. Brunelli Jr. Electrician, we can inspect knob and tube wiring and replace it. We’ll provide an expert opinion, and upgrade the wiring to current electrical standards.
