What You Should Know About Aluminum wiring
Was your home built between the mid 1960s and late 1970s? If so, it may have aluminum wiring. Homeowners today are finding many insurers may not provide or renew insurance coverage on these homes unless the wiring is inspected by the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA), repaired or replaced as necessary, and a copy of the Certificate of Inspection is provided to the insurer. You should check with your insurance company for their requirements.
If repairs are required, remember that if you’re hiring someone to do electrical work in your home, by law it must be a Licensed Electrical Contractor. It is recommended you hire one familiar with aluminum wiring. Before making the repairs, the Licensed Electrical Contractor should do an assessment and take out any necessary permits so the work is subject to review and inspection.
Aluminum wiring, if installed improperly, can be a fire hazard and should be investigated by a licensed electrician.
