Aluminum Vs. Copper
In most cases, older homes are equipped with aluminum wiring. In this day and age, copper wiring is the standard. Because of this, most insurance companies will not even insure homes with aluminum wiring. Also, aluminum wiring has the following problems:
- Oxidization - An aluminum wire will oxidize over time, which could cause overheating issues in the wire. A copper pipe will not oxidize.
- Softness - Aluminum is softer than copper and therefore can bend and cause disruptions at the terminal. Copper is more sturdy.
- Incompatible - Modern devices are usually not compatible with aluminum wiring.
- Fire Hazard - Aluminum wiring has the tendency to split and fray, which can be a serious fire hazard in your home. However, copper wiring will not do this.
If your home has aluminum wiring it is definitely in your best interest to upgrade to copper right away.
Other Reasons to Rewire Your Home
Other than dealing with aluminum wires, there are other reasons why you should consider getting wiring work done in your home:
- Replacing old wires
- If substantial electrical upgrades to your home have been done
- If your home has suffered water damage
- As a part of a renovation
