John McGettigan, a local electrician whose family has worked in the Chestnut Hill area since 1949, will be giving a talk on the practical aspects of maintaining and repairing electrical issues in your historic home, with a special focus on “BX” wiring, which was first installed in 1930. While the dangers of “knob and tube” wiring are well known to most, the problems with “BX” wiring are rarely discussed.
A free program to the community, Ask the Experts is offered quarterly by the Chestnut Hill Conservancy & the Chestnut Hill Community Association, and addresses a featured topic by an expert on prevalent issues relating to historic home and landscape care, as well as free access to the Conservancy’s Archives.
