Aluminum Wiring Replacement

If your home has aluminum wiring, it should be replaced as soon as possible. Aluminum wiring was popular during the sixties and seventies but was later determined to be unsafe.

Aluminum Wiring Replacement

Why is aluminum wiring a safety concern?

Aluminum wiring has many risks:

  • Aluminum will oxidize very easily. Under some conditions, the wiring can develop a significant amount of rust within a single day. This increases the resistance of the wiring, which can lead to a receptacle overheating and starting on fire.
  • Aluminum is softer and more malleable than copper wiring, which makes it much more prone to damage.
  • Aluminum expands as its temperature increases—this is called thermal expansion—which means that it can change shape at the terminal screws, which can cause it to come loose or disconnect.

Why replace aluminum wiring it if it is working?

If you have aluminum wiring in your home, it could seem to be working fine right up until the point when something goes drastically wrong. Because you can’t see behind your walls, it’s often difficult to determine if you have a problem, and there is no way for you to determine when a problem might occur, or what kind of hazard it will be.
