Safety Hazards

Energy Assessment Safety Hazard

When conducting an energy audit, there are several safety hazards that your TCS energy assessor will point out if they are present in your home or building. We can provide services to remedy these risks on top of our other improvements.

Knob and Tube Wiring

Knob and tube wiring was installed in homes mostly between the 1920’s and 1960’s.  Porcelain knobs and tubes were used to insulate the wiring during the installation.  In most cases knob and tube insulators are no long safe because they have past their usable life span.



Asbestos Siding or Pipe Wrap

The dangers of asbestos are well documented. It increases the risk of lung cancer and other respiratory tract diseases. The EPA and OSHA recommend a proactive removal plan when asbestos is found in a home.
