You may have aluminum wiring and not even know it.
Aluminum wire expands and contracts easier then copper wire, which could lead to dangerous wire connections, oxidization problems, arcing and could lead to electrical fires.
Back in the 1970ís when some homes were wired with aluminum wiring the connections and devices such as receptacles and switches were not designed for aluminum.
Today we have better technology and the proper devices to defeat this problem.
Some insurance companies will not insure or will cancel insurance policies if the home owner doesnít get the aluminum safety upgrade completed.
New home buyers are aware of aluminum wiring problems and will not purchase a home unless the safety upgrade has been completed and you have a letter from both the Ontario Electrical Safety and the electrical company who did the upgrade.
Aluminum wiring connections that have not been addressed are time bombs waiting to cause problems in the future.
