Rewiring a house has many factors to consider such as cost, how long it will take and how the work will affect your day-to-day life while the project is ongoing.Older homes are especially hard-pressed to keep up with today's electrical demands. The symptoms are obvious, but are often overlooked or ignored.
Unless your home was built quite recently, it's likely that the electrical system already needs some upgrading or repair. New electrical codes are making homes safer, and it's important to keep up with the changes. And with technology accelerating at an ever-faster pace, the need for power grows every day.The electrical safety of homes is increasing as a result of new electrical codes and it is consequently important to keep up to date with these changes.

Knob and tube wiring refers to the first generation of electrical wiring. Knob and tube wiring, more recently referred to as open wiring, was a wiring method used in the early 1900s to 1940s in the residential sector.One of the main differences between modern wiring and the old knob and tube, is that there is no ground wire. Over the years wiring installation practices have changed in the residential sector and knob and tube wiring is no longer installed.
Some insurance companies refuse to provide coverage for homes with knob and tube wiring. If your home has knob and tube wiring, the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) recommends you have a Licensed Electrical Contractor check the "knob and tube" conductors in your existing installations for signs of deterioration or damage; or arrange to get a general electrical inspection.
