Aluminum Wiring ReplacementService @ All Electrical
If your home was built between the 1960’s and 1970’s and the electrical wiring hasn’t ever been changed, then you may have aluminum wiring.
Aluminum wiring is safe to use as long as it is connected and terminated according to the electrical code. Moreover, aluminum wiring needs to be connected to a device that is approved for aluminum wiring. The Ontario Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) has a detailed article on this topic and can be accessed by clicking here.
Some insurance companies may require your aluminum wiring to be inspected and/or replaced before they provide insurance or renewal. In such a case, you need an licensed electrical contractor to perform the job and provide you with a Certificate of Inspection from ESA.
