A professional electrician can inform you about the problems associated with aluminum connections.
Aluminum connections have a higher fire hazard rate than any other material.
If you have aluminum connections in your home, which you probably do if your home was built prior to the early 70’s, the connections will continue to operate properly even after reaching the right conditions for a fire.
The homeowner never thinks there is a problem until it is too late.
There is a way to correct the problems with the aluminum connections, but a professional, licensed, insured electrician should do the work to make sure your home is safe from any unsafe connections.
Just because your wiring and connections look good now does not mean you do not have a problem. The aluminum connections deteriorate slowly over time, causing a fire hazard for any home or property.
The way to make your home safe is to crimp the connections.
This is when you need the services of a professional, licensed, insured electrician. Everything has to be inspected and the crimping has to be performed correctly to prevent future deterioration of the connection.
An electrician can check all of your switches and outlets and replace the ones that are found to be bad. Once you take the time to have an expert electrician come into your home and fix all your aluminum connection issues, you will once again have a safe house from possible fire.
It is always better to have your connections inspected to make sure your home and family are safe. With these connections, you never know when they are faulty until it’s too late.
