Many U.S. homes are still equipped with aluminum wiring. This material was popular during the 1960s and 1970s because it was cheaper than copper wiring. However, we now know that aluminum wiring poses a potential fire hazard. Poor wire connections can cause the wiring to overheat and start a house fire.
An electrician should come out to inspect your wiring ASAP if it was built anywhere between the mid1960s and early 1970s. If your home is equipped with aluminum wiring, the electrician will need to conduct a complete rewiring to replace it with safer copper wiring.
5 Benefits of Copper Wiring
Since aluminum wiring poses a fire risk, copper wiring is now the preferred material for electrical wiring systems. Check out the top five benefits of installing copper wiring in your home.
- Safer: Copper wiring is heat-resistant and has a high melting point. This means that it doesn’t overheat easily and poses almost no risk of initiating a house fire.
- Higher electrical conductivity: Copper wiring carries more electricity, allowing it to provide stronger, more reliable power throughout your home.
- Inexpensive: Copper wiring was once more expensive than aluminum wiring because it wasn’t commonly used and was harder to come by. Now that copper wiring is commonplace in U.S. homes, it’s cheaper and easier to find.
- More ductile: When compared to aluminum wiring, copper wiring is more flexible. It won’t crack or break, and you can shape and twist it as needed. It stays where you want it to and doesn’t loosen over time.
- Pairs well with appliances: Copper wiring is compatible with most modern appliances. Some appliances even require copper wiring to operate.
