Why is aluminum wiring dangerous?
There are a few main problems that can come from having old aluminum wiring and terminations in your home.
As old aluminum wiring expands, contracts, and corrodes over time, it can lead to loose connections and heat buildup at connection points and in fixtures.
Homes that still have aluminum wiring are as much as 55 times more likely to have electrical issues that could lead to an expensive, devastating house fire.
These days, the electrical standards for home wiring set by the NFPA, the NEC, and national building codes often require aluminum wiring to be replaced.
