When is enough enough? Electrical issues that should not be.
It only took 109 years for this home to get to this point.
This home was built in 1905, started out with Knob and Tube wiring and then "Upgraded" to fiber coated lines then finally the standard Romex style was installed.
But major issues remain. It seems that each and every time the home's electrical had been worked on, the electricians never removed from service the older electrical components.
Take a look at the way this homes electrical was a "Nightmare to inspect".
The incoming service was correct. But then it went from good to bad to really bad.
Heading down the stairwell to the basement. Here is what I found. WOW.
Here is Five panels and boxes to inspect in the stairwell alone.
Note the lines that come out of the center main breaker panel.
When I saw this mess, all I could think of was "Oh No".
This was justified when I got to the basement and found the second round of breaker and fuse panels.
There is another four panels in the basement. Notice the lines for the main panel in the stair well?
These lines come into the FPE panels through cut off conduit. No wire protection.
This home should have been upgraded a very long time ago. Instead of just adding more and more panels to the home. The electricians did not give the proper advice when the need for more electrical work on the home.
This is why you always get a "Full Home Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.
