Aluminum Wiring

Aluminum wiring in an older home or business is widely considered to be dangerous, and installation of it has been banned for many years now. Aluminum wiring can easily become loose in its connections, and lead to arcing and sparking, which can greatly increase the fire risk for the structure. Due to this increased risk, some insurance companies will no longer insure structures that contain aluminum wiring.

Two Primary Methods Used To Reduce The Safety Risk Of Aluminum Wiring:

  • Removal (Complete Rewiring)
  • Complete rewiring, or removal of all aluminum wiring from a structure, is the best practice, and is our recommendation.

  • Aluminum to Copper “Pig-tailing”
  • NOTE: Aluminum to Copper Pig-tailing, if done properly, can make an aluminum wiring system much safer, but if not done properly, it can make the wiring system much more dangerous.

    NOTE: Don’t take chances with aluminum wiring. Improper repairs made to aluminum wiring can very quickly become a danger to your family and home. It is critical to use only electrical specialists that have been properly trained, to work on aluminum wiring.
