Connecting homes for comfort, convenience and code compliance

Meskell Electric - Residential Services

Catering to the unique needs of homeowners throughout the Merrimack Valley, Middlesex County and Boston areas, Meskell Electric specializes in knob and tube rewiring services. This type of rudimentary electrical wiring was common in buildings built between 1880 and as late as 1950, earning its name from the supporting ceramic knobs and tubes that protect the wire as it connects through wood framing.

It was quick, cheap and effective – until it started causing fires due to overheating and short circuiting. Today’s buildings don’t feature this type of wiring for obvious reasons, but older homes still have it. Modern wiring is necessary to bring your home up to code, particularly if you are looking to sell the house and pass inspection. That’s where we come in.

Meskell Electric also performs other residential electrical work, including:

  • Service upgrades
  • Knob & Tube rewiring
  • Remodels & Additions
  • TVs and speakers for home gyms
