IF YOUR HOME IS OVER 30 YEARS OLD, YOU MAY BE AT RISK
Aluminum wiring was used in the construction of new homes in the 1960s and 1970s. It is said to have about a 30-year lifespan. It was used because of its excellent conductivity and low cost. Eventually, over time, corrosion begins to build up the gaps that are formed between the connectors and wires. This is due to how the aluminum expands and contracts with the flow of electricity. This causes the connectors to become so hot that a fire is sparked and the circuit breaker is never even tripped.
SYMPTOMS OF FAULTY ALUMINUM WIRING
Signs that you may have a problem with the aluminum wiring in your home:
- Unusable electrical outlets
- Hot receptacles and switch plates
- Receptacles and switch plates that smell like burning plastic
- Radio, TV, or computer static
- Electrical devices that smoke or spark
