This picture is of the original metal box that housed the fuses to a home in West Philadelphia. It shows how the fuses were removed a long time ago and the circuits were spliced in the old box to run to a new fuse box. We know this was a long time ago because the wire connections were done with ceramic wire nuts.
When we take a closer look, we see a complex web of colors and lines. Does this look like art to you? Electrically this is a nightmare and not a thing of beauty. These wires are old. Some are at least 100 years old. This is a home that is in need of rewiring. Many insurance companies will not even issue insurance to homes with this type of wiring (ungrounded knob and tube).
Do these pictures look familiar? If so, please call Generation 3 Electric to update your electrical service before it is too late! Electrical codes and techniques have changed within the last 30 to 40 years BUT it is not the responsibility of the electric company to upgrade the electrical equipment, it is the homeowners responsibility!
