Knob & Tube Wiring

This talk will explain historic knob & tube wiring, how the primary concerns with it result from subsequent renovations or additions, and how it can be tested and certified safe for home insurance. Learn who insures heritage homes with knob & tube and how testing and rectifying any issues is considerably cheaper than rewiring. Join certified electrical contractor and electrical tester, Brian Cook.
