Aluminum wiring was used in many homes built from in the mid-1960s and early 1970s. If your home was built during this time and hadn’t been rewired, you may still have this potentially dangerous type of wiring. Wiring made from aluminum is a fire hazard that needs to be replaced immediately. At Larry & Sons, we can help.
Why Your Aluminum Wiring Needs to Be Repaired or Replaced
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, aluminum wiring has caused several tires and even deaths. Expansions can occur at connections between wires and devices like switches and outlets, potentially resulting in dangerous overheating. Homes built before 1972 with this type of wiring are 55 times more likely to have a connection reach “Fire Hazard Conditions” than homes with copper wiring.
Even aluminum wiring manufactured and installed post-1972 could be dangerous. The introduction of alloys failed to solve most connection failure problems. Despite this, aluminum wiring is still used in some applications, like single-usage high amperage circuits and residential service entrance wiring.
