Fuses to Breakers

Many years ago, houses were wired into a fuse box and as a safety measure, the fuse would “blow” to prevent a circuit from overloading, heating up causing a potential fire risk. Technology has greatly improved since then, and the new code requires circuit breaker panels which provide more safety. If you still have fuses, Call Hurley Electric to discuss the conversion to breakers and bring your system up to code.

Knob and Tube Wiring

If your home was built prior to 1950, it is likely your house is wired with what is known as knob and tubing wiring. This is cloth insulated wiring. As it ages, it dries out and deteriorates exposing the bare wire, which could cause the possibility of shocks and even worse fires. This wire has earned the nickname in the field as “fire wire”. Grounding of the electrical service is paramount for safety however the knob and tubing system does not have a grounding system.
