I am purchasing a home that was built in 1922 which has Knob and tube wiring in the attic.
1. The House has updated 200 amp service with breaker box (a little small, 20 1" slots)
2. Has open unfinished basement and nice 2' crawlspace. All other knob and tube has been replaced.
3. When the other knob and tube was replaced, they did not redo the circuits. I will be rewiring the rest of the house after the knob and tube is replaced.
So... my question is. All the knob and tube in the attic goes to ceiling lights and the switches. My intention is to rewire all the knob and tube for these ceiling lights and put that on 1-2 circuits
Is it reasonable to take this approach rather then try to incorporate the ceiling lights into the circuits of each room and outlets?
3 Bedroom, 1 Bath, 1300 ft2 home.
If all the ceiling lights were on at the same time ~1500 watts ->12.5 amps
Also there is bathroom fan, stovetop fan, and ceiling fan. I would put on seperate circuit.
So two 15 amp circuits to replace the knob and tube.
