Does Your Home Need Rewiring?
If your home was built between 1960 and the late 1970s, you might have potentially dangerous aluminum wiring. While it’s cheaper than copper wiring, aluminum wires shrink and expand with temperature. This can cause overheating, sparks, and fires when the wires are spliced or make a connection with outlets, switches, circuit breakers, and other electrical components.
Knob and tube wiring installed from the 1800s to the 1930s also poses potential risks when attempting to handle the load of modern appliances. It's poorly insulated, making it especially susceptible to electrical fires. Knob wiring is not grounded either, making outlets and plugs unsafe in rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms.
If your home was built in either timeframe, you may want to consider replacing your wiring. If you're not sure what type—or types—of wiring your home has, we're also happy to do a complete inspection and evaluation to help you weigh the advantages and disadvantages of replacing your wiring.
