Insurance Certificates – insurance companies demand that electrical be updated

Especially common in East End Toronto, out-of-date knob and tube wiring can still be found in homes and this can be a problem, as many insurance companies demand that electrical be updated to modern standards before insuring the dwelling.

You may have knob and tube wiring in your home if you have outlets with only two prongs – not three. Or if you have button switches. Other evidence can be seen behind walls – ceramic knobs attached to wires, for example.

Qualified electricians are often called upon to inspect homes and then issue certificates, after the home’s wiring is deemed up to date.

At Green Isle Electric, Master Electrician Declan O’Meara can offer you this service. Call us when you are ready for an inspection of your electrical, or if you want to know what work needs to be done to satisfy insurance companies.
