Aluminum Wiring

Some houses constructed during the 1970s may have aluminum wiring, as the copper prices were high at that time. Although aluminum wiring was thicker, it was cheaper and lighter. However, the aluminum wiring has compatibility issues (mating of dissimilar metals). Also, aluminum wire expands and contracts differently in heat or cold compared to copper, posing a higher risk of loose, burnt connections, which can result in fires. When dissimilar metals make contact with one another, corrosion occurs.

As aluminum wiring is no longer utilized for circuits within the home, any renovations will be wired in copper wiring and any joining of copper to aluminum require special treatment methods. Symptoms of aluminum wiring issues may include flickering lights, switches, or receptacles being warm to the touch, or no power. We can do cost effective inspections and replacements.
