Knob and Tube Upgrades in Los Angeles


Knob and tube electrical systems are an artifact of early electrical history. Their use dates back to the late 1800s. So if your Los Angeles home is still relying on one of these systems, it’s time to step into the modern age with a knob and tube upgrade. You see, as older wiring systems, knob and tube circuits are physically unable to conduct the power necessary to run an average modern home’s fixtures and appliances.


What is the Risk?

Think about this: knob and tube systems were created and implemented during a time long before kitchen aid mixers, central air conditioning units, jacuzzis, desk-top computers, or even, washers and dryers. This means that older Los Angeles households with knob and tube electrical systems run the risk of not only causing frequent power outages, but also severe and permanent electrical damage to your home.


Why Knob and Tube Systems Must Be Replaced?

There’s just no getting around it—knob and tube electrical systems are a liability. Here’s why:

  • Often denied homeowners insurance coverage
  • No safety grounding conductor
  • Low circuit capacity
  • High risk of over-fusing
  • Cloth and rubber insulation becomes brittle with age
  • Easily damaged by rodents and renovations
  • Illegal in most US counties due to safety hazards
