High Quality Aluminum Wiring Replacement in Merced & Stanislaus County
Like any other system in your home, your electrical system can become outdated over time. While the overall design and technique to wiring a home remains fairly consistent over the years, the materials used in that wiring do, and among the older wiring types that can still be found in homes all over the country is aluminum wiring. While aluminum wiring isn't necessarily dangerous, it definitely has the potential to cause problems around your home. In addition to the safety issues that tend to be more common with aluminum wiring, it is also one of the more inefficient wiring types out there, and some insurance companies even refuse to cover a house that still has aluminum wiring in place.

Aluminum Wiring Inspections
If you are unsure about what kind of wiring is present in your home, it might be time for you to call in a professional electrician and have them perform an inspection. If you do have aluminum wiring in your home, it doesn't necessarily mean that your home is unsafe and in need of immediate replacement, but it does mean that your wiring is more of a risk factor that needs to be monitored. Aluminum wiring oxidizes much more easily than copper wiring, and the rust that forms makes it extremely susceptible to overheating. Overheating can be a much more serious issue with aluminum wiring due to the lower melting point, which can result in your wiring getting damaged, bent out of shape, or even melting if the overheating is bad enough, and if that happens, there is a serious possibility of a house fire being started.
