Knob and Tube Wiring NJ

Knob and tube wiring was used in many New Jersey houses that were built before the 1950s. To be able to detect if you have knob and tube wiring in your house you can look up at your basement joist and in the attic at the rafters.knob and tube nj
When you are looking in your basement or attic to determine if your NJ home is wired with knob and tube, look for ceramic knobs or ceramic tubes that are nailed to or drilled through the joist and studs. If you cannot easily see the knob and tube wiring because your basement has drywall or the attic has flooring, another way to tell if you have knob and tube wiring would be to look in your outlet boxes or switch boxes. A third way is you can look would be at the electrical panel itself by taking the cover off..

Knob and tube removal In NJ for 20 years

One of the telltale signs that you have knob and tube wiring would be when you look at your outlet if it only has two prongs it’s a good likelihood that its knob and tube wiring. Most new wiring in NJ and elsewhere has three prongs, as the ground wire was not present in knob and tube wiring.
One of the other major concerns to note is that just because you have three prong outlets in older homes does not necessarily mean that you don’t have knob and tube wiring.. Over the Knob-and-tube1last 25 years in New Jersey I have seen a lot of amateur wiring repairs that were performed by homeowners and other non- professionals, where they took the knob and tube wiring and installed a three prong outlet even know the ground wire was not available and effectively providing an unsafe outlet that appears to be grounded but in reality there is no ground available. contact us to schedule an evaluation.
