Why Replace Aluminum Wiring?
The importance of Aluminum wiring repair in New Jersey homes was recently publicized in a report by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). According to staff and government officials who specialize in the investigation of fires and hazardous incidents around the country in which aluminum wiring was involved. The report, generated in conjunction with the Franklin Research Institute indicated that every light switch, junction box, and outlet connected to Aluminum wire circuits is a potential fire hazard. In fact such homes are over 50 times more at risk than those without aluminum wiring.
Because of the increased risk of fire in homes with Aluminum wire connections, many insurance companies are refusing to provide or renew coverage on homes – especially those built during the 1960’s or 70’s. This leaves homeowners at serious financial risk, a risk only removed by the inspection of circuits and Aluminum wiring repair. New Jersey has many homes that were built during the aforementioned period. If you are the owner of such a house, you may want to seriously consider having an inspection carried out to your home.
