Aluminum Wiring Dangers

Aluminum Wiring Dangers - Eagle Eye Home InspectorsCentral NJ Wiring Inspector

It is important to know about aluminum wiring dangers. Call a Central NJ wiring inspector if you have any aluminum wiring in your home.

Aluminum wiring was commonly used in Central NJ homes in the 1960’s and early 1970’s. As a result of an extreme increase in the cost of copper, usually used for home electrical wiring, home builders frequently turned to aluminum wiring to reduce cost.

The concerns regarding aluminum wiring were not known at that time.

Today, aluminum wiring is known to have the risk of arcing as well as causing a fire.

If you are concerned that you may have aluminum wiring in your home, contact a licensed electrician to examine your home’s wiring.
