Portland Aluminum Wiring Replacement
If your home was built in the 1960’s to the late 1970’s, there is a good chance that electrical wiring in your home might be aluminum wire instead of copper wiring. Since the mid-1970’s, only copper wiring has been used in homes, due to aluminum wiring was found to pose a fire hazard. You might need to have aluminum wiring replacement done in your Portland home.
Aluminum wiring is can be a fire hazard wherever it is spliced or makes a connection with an outlet, switch, circuit breaker or other component of an electrical system. One reason aluminum wiring is such a fire hazard is because it shrinks and expands depending on the temperature. These changes to the aluminum wires can result in overheating, sparks and fires.
