The Science behind why aluminum wiring fails:

When current passes through a circuit that contains both aluminum and copper, the connections loosen up. 

This is caused by the two metals expanding and contracting at different rates. Smalls gaps then emerge, exposing the aluminum wire to oxygen. This in turn  forms an oxidative layer that is 90% less conductive than the aluminum itself.  The situation worsens, arcing begins, then circuit failer and/or fire occurs.

Our experianced electrical solution:

Al-Cu  rated wire nuts filled with an aluminum anti oxidant, Arc Fault breakers installed and copper on copper connections under all clamp type connections.  This includes all receptacles, switches and breakers.

We then book an city electrical inspection. Upon completion a green sticker is applied to the electrical panel indicating a pass.

 

We then issue an Aluminum Correction Certificate for the life of the home.  This includes:

  • Journeymans name and Certificate number

  • City Inspectors name and Permit Number

  • Corporation ID number

  • Quality brand name panels.

  • Plenty of extra breaker spaces.

  • 5/8" Plywood panel board backing.
