The builders, electricians and contractors that came before us achieved maximum success with the tools at their disposal, but in the world of today we have even greater resources for making our homes safe and reliable. The methods of yesteryear were effective, but that is not to say that they cannot be improved upon.
Case in point would be the knob and tube wiring jobs that were commonplace in the home during the early 1900s. At Power Electrical, we see this wiring method quite a bit and although we enjoy marveling at the resourcefulness of our predecessors, the fact is that our technological advances have simply made it obsolete. For that reason, we specialize in replacement jobs for knob and tube wiring and no job is too big for us!
Adequate Experience of Replacing Knob and Tube Wiring
Residential rewiring of this type is not an easy task, but we like to think we’ve streamlined the process somewhat and our technicians are second to none. We consistently work with some of the largest residential builders in Canada and specialize in new builds. But, we never shy away from renovating an individual home or an office space. We excel at replacing the old knob and tube wiring method. The traditional method requires your home’s electrical connections to be routed through the wooden beams under your home or in the attic. To protect the wires, they are run through the beams inside of a ceramic knob. In the olden days, it was a solid technology that has proved its worth. The problem is that it can be difficult to patch the holes as you replace the wiring over time. At Power Electrical, we’ve been replacing this sort of wiring for over two decades. So, when we get to your home and identify the problem, we can hit the ground running.

When I bought my new home I had no idea that I would need so much electrical work done. I wasn't sure where to turn so I gave Power Electrical a chance. I'm so thankful I did. These guys did a great job. They were fast and the price wasn't bad either. Thanks, Power Electrical!
