Aluminum Wire Solutions

Many houses built in Calgary in the 1960’s throughout the 1970’s and into the early 1980’s were wired with aluminum wire. Aluminum was used for electrical wiring back then because it was a much cheaper alternative to copper. But there have been problems with aluminum wiring that have caused fires, overheating, sparks, and shocks. So for electrical safety, aluminum wiring is no longer used for branch circuit wiring.

When you have aluminum wiring in your home, you may not know that it is the cause of problems you're experiencing with your electrical system. Some indicators of existing aluminum wiring may be:

  • Flickering lights
  • Receptacles and switches hot to the touch
  • Smoke and or sizzling sounds coming from the receptacle or switch
  • Smell of burning plastic or rubber
  • Loss of power throughout the house
  • Circuit breaker trips for no reason
Technically Speaking, Why Does Aluminum Wiring Need Replacement?

Aluminum wire can be dangerous due to the fact that it has a higher thermal expansion rate then copper, which means aluminum wire expands and contracts more than copper wire. When this happens the aluminum wire can come loose from its intended connection causing arcing and sparking, which could become a potential fire hazard.

At Total Electrical Solutions, we offer a cost effective method to resolve this problem that is less intrusive than the alternative, which is cutting drywall in order to replace the home's wiring with copper. All our methods meet and exceed the Canadian Electrical code.
