Aluminum wiring was the go-to approach in electricity back in the 1960s and 1970s due to how affordable and conductive its material can be. But as the years passed, this type of wiring was associated with fire hazards, making homes that utilize it a dangerous place to live in.
Fortunately, Powersource Electric can provide homes with aluminum rewiring solutions that will prevent the risks that come with aluminum wiring.
The main issue with aluminum wiring is that it has a high rate of expansion and contraction at different temperatures, potentially causing its connections to loosen over time. When these connections loosen, the probability that such wiring will catch fire increases significantly.
Electrical fires have also been prevalent with this type of wiring since most of the outlets or switches installed in these houses aren’t compatible with aluminum wiring.
The best way for homeowners to avoid experiencing potential fires is to get an aluminum wiring replacement.
