I am converting a small, 2nd floor bedroom in my 1921 home into a home office. Because we had some minor water damage, I have removed the majority of the ceiling and found that the room has knob and tube wiring. Most of the house has upgraded wiring, but knew there were portinos that still had knob and tube wiring hooked up.
My question is whether I need to replace that wiring in order to be able to use 3-prong outlets or if I can simply replace the recepticals with GFCI. We will have several pieces of computer equipment in the room and probably a small LCD television.
Is this safe, or will I need to run new wiring into the room.
Thanks for the help.
