Why are Insurance Companies Refusing to Insure Homes With Knob and Tube Wiring?

By Dottie Robbins | Mar 17, 2017 10:25:00 AM

Over the last several years, more and more insurance companies are refusing to insure homes with Knob and Tube wiring. This is not surprising as this wiring is extremely old and dangerous. This wiring was used in homes until approximately the 1950's. It is now extremely old and may have been subjected to extensive damage from contractors extending circuits over the years, which increases the possibility of poor connections. These problems can cause the wiring to short circuit or overheat. This wiring is not grounded, which increases the chances of shock and electrical fire. It should never be used in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms or outdoors. The amperage is inadequate, so many contractors installed fuses with resistances that were too high for the wiring. This caused the fuses not to blow as often, but also causes heat damage.

Gen3 Electric's Featured Electrician of the Month for January is... Josh Trisdorfer

By Dottie Robbins | Jan 18, 2017 10:00:00 AM
Don't be fooled by the adorable smile and super young- looking face, Josh is quite the electrician and has many years experience and tons of whole house rewires under his belt! His customer reviews are outstanding and he is a bit of a pefectionist. Josh went to school at Thompson Institute (now Kaplan) to start his career as an Electrician. After he completed his schooling, he worked with another electrical contractor for just under a year. He applied at Generation 3 Electric back in 2012 and the rest is history. Our Managing Director(and owner), Debbie Lutz, is proud to say that Josh was her very first hire here at Generation 3 Electric. Josh was hired as an electrician and impressed the Gen3 management, staff and customers daily. He excelled and was promoted to Lead Electrician after one year.
