ALUMINUM WIRING REPLACEMENT
We are here to help with your upgrade
Homes built before 1972 were typically made with aluminum wiring, as that was the most affordable means of electrical conduction at the time. After that, copper became more cost effective and was adopted for standard use as it is a more conductive material. While aluminum is an effective means of conducting electricity in a home, since it is no longer an industry standard it is incompatible with modern technology.
The danger that a home with aluminum wiring faces is in the outlets, receptacles, fixtures and switches. All of these items have likely been replaced since the 70′s and therefore are outfitted with copper connections. Since copper and aluminum expand and contract at different temperatures, over time these wires will likely come loose from the connections. When this happens, arcing may occur which is a serious fire hazard. Call us today for an aluminum wiring replacement service estimate.
