Aluminum Wiring Replacement
From the mid 1960’s to the mid 1970’s aluminum branch circuit wiring was installed in a lot of homes.
We have found many problems with the connections that are made with the aluminum wiring to lights, receptacles and switches that can create potential house fires. All homes wired with aluminum wiring should be checked for problems at these connection points.
Wiretech Company uses only CPSC approved AlumiConn connectors at these points of connection along with the recommendation of installing Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters on branch circuits with aluminum wiring to help prevent the possibility of fires.
