My house is wired with aluminum wire, is this safe?
May 29, 2015
Aluminum wiring itself is not unsafe, however it is the connections(splices and terminations) where the hazard is found. Performing repairs on aluminum wiring is not recommended as proper re-splicing and terminating techniques are more complicated than standard procedures. Repairs to aluminum can save you from a fire, additionally it can actually save you money on your insurance policy!
