If your home was built or remodeled from the late 60's to the early 80's, there is a very good chance your home could be wired with aluminum wiring. While not all aluminum wiring is dangerous, branch circuit wiring feeding your lights, switches and outlets can be very dangerous if wired with aluminum wiring.
If you think your home may be wired with aluminum wiring, and you're concerned about the safety of your electrical system, we highly recommend you call a reliable and trustworthy electrical contractor like Emerald State Electric to schedule a complete electrical home safety audit.
