Aluminum Wiring Replacement
Welcome to Wilson Electrical Services Inc. We are a leading electrical company dedicated to helping homeowners repair, rewire, or rejuvenate aluminum wiring. With the increasing safety concerns regarding aluminum wiring, it is crucial to take measures to prevent fire incidents in homes.
Homes built between the mid-1960s and the late 1970s most likely have aluminum wiring. However, most insurers decline to insure homes with aluminum wiring, unless they see a certificate of inspection. To avoid insurance issues, the aluminum wiring needs to be inspected, repaired, replaced, or certified, while the ESA (Electrical Safety Authority) will inspect and issue a certificate of inspection.

Aluminum Wiring in Homes
Most homes built from 1965 to 1973 have aluminum wiring, which has a higher risk of having at least one connection become a major fire hazard. Usually, a house has a minimum of 200 wire connections, clearly indicating that such a house has about 200 chances of a fire outbreak due to the danger of aluminum wiring.

Aluminum Wiring Rejuvenation
Rejuvenating your aluminum wiring is a perfect alternative to aluminum wiring replacement if it has not undergone any kind of maintenance. Aluminum wiring rejuvenation involves replacing all the receptacles and switches with COLAR-rated devices (proper anti-oxidant and properly rated devices). Furthermore, all the connections at the junction boxes and light fixtures should be remade with properly rated wire connectors and antioxidants.
It is good to know that aluminum wiring rejuvenation is permitted through the Electrical Safety Authority (E.S.A.), and a certificate of inspection declaring your aluminum wiring safe will be given to you. Insurance companies usually ask for this certificate before they consider insuring a home with aluminum wiring.
