Why insurance companies might not insure you if you have knob & tube wiring.
This is a good example why insurance companies will generally not insure property with active Knob & Tube electrical Wiring. This photo shows a live , poorly insulated, wire that was arcing(sparking) when copper plumbing was added to the home. What option would you choose?The quick fix and Electrical tape on the pipe or the real fix? Remove all old Knob & Tube wiring. A house built with patches will eventually crumble or burn. Don’t let anyone shortcut your families safety.
