Should I replace aluminum wiring in my home?

While aluminum wiring is still found in many older homes throughout the US, it is best to replace it. In the 60’s and 70’s aluminum wiring was standard practice and current code. However, it was soon realized that this type of wiring will lose its integrity over time. Once wiring becomes unstable, it becomes a fire hazard. For that reason, our recommendation is to replace all aluminum wiring in your home or office.

Shortcuts on home and office wiring are always a bad idea. Rewiring is a foundational upgrade. Anything electrical that you add or use moving forward, will operate off of the wiring of the home. Use extra care during this process. It will help dictate your quality of electrical function in the future. As you might expect, replacing wiring is definitely a job for professionally trained and licensed electricians.

Additionally, communicate with your electrician about all of the devices you use and upgrades you plan on making in the future. Preparing your electrical system now will save you time and money in the future. Keep in mind, older homes were not designed for all of the electronics we use on a day-to-day basis, these days. Depending on the age of the home, the gap to fill can be rather large. We encourage you to spend extra time figuring out what you use and what future use might look like as well.

Lastly, our team of professional and licensed electricians can help you with this process every step of the way.
