    Default Debunking Myths and Understanding the Safety of Aluminum Wiring in Residential Homes

    When purchasing a home you defiantly want to know if there is aluminum wire in the home because it can be a fire hazard! This fire hazard however can be mitigated to make the home safe! The first step is identifying that the home or building does indeed have aluminum wiring. If there is aluminum wire you are then recommended to have a certified electrician do a further inspection of the homes electrical system. Using approved connectors and techniques like crimp style connections and pigtails, aluminum wiring in Canadian homes can remain safe and functional, Homeowners need not always opt for complete rewiring if proper safety measures are in place and maintained according to CEC guidelines.
