Yikes! Sometimes we see something that really scares us.
This house had newer switches with dimmers so of course the homeowners thought the wiring was good. Nobody would put new switches and outlets on unsafe electrical wiring… would they? Turns out that behind the upgraded finish pieces was old cloth “knob and tube” wiring, with no grounding! This home needed a re-wire immediately for safety!
If you look behind the switch plate and see a combination of old cloth covered wiring and new wiring you may be in a dangerous situation.
