Knob & Tube Wiring in Portland
Knob & tube wiring in Portland is an older electrical system of open electrical conductors that are supported on ceramic knobs. It was commonly used from the 1880's through the 1930's. This type of wiring does not provide a third wire for grounding which means that it is unsafe to use in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and other areas which have water hookups. Our electricians can assess your home and determine if your electrical system uses knob & tube wiring. Once determined, we can replace your old knob & tube wiring with new, safe electrical wiring.
Aside from being dangerous, another disadvantage associated with knob and tube wiring is that it cannot meet the energy usage for the modern household. If used in a modern house today, knob and tube wiring would lead to blown fuses and heat damaged wiring.
