Why should Knob and Tube be replaced?

Knob and Tube is a very outdated and dangerous form of wiring. These circuits have been worn out over many years of use and do not contain a ground wire. This wiring on its own can become a serious hazard but becomes worse when it comes into contact with insulation.

Over the past ten years, insurance companies have been refusing insurance for new policies in homes that contain knob and tube wiring. Lauterborn Electric always recommends complete replacement of knob and tube wiring.
