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.

Just bought my house literally a week ago and have already met 3 of your wonderful technicians (2 heating and 1 plumbing). They are polite and personable, and I feel like I can trust that they are doing what is best for my home… not just for the company’s bank account. That is difficult to find in any type of Service Company. Thank you!
Josh was wonderful. We just bought a house that needs a lot of work, and the heating systems were no exception. He looked everything over and gave me several options for the amount of work that needs to be done. I felt he was honest and sincere in his diagnosis of my many issues, and in trying to figure out the best options, while still remaining economical. He was very polite and personable as well. Thanks Josh!
