Aluminum Wiring in Tampa

Beware of the Hidden Dangers of This Type of Wiring

It may or may not come as a surprise to you, but from the mid-1960s to the 1970s, homes were commonly built using aluminum wiring due to a shortage of copper. This alternate wiring was, in fact, a serious issue. Homes with this type of wiring are at a greater risk of danger because aluminum wiring heats up more than copper, which can damage the connections and start a fire. Due to the serious issues with this type of wiring, insurance companies will no longer insure a home if it contains aluminum wiring.

If you are trying to sell your home, this will need to be fixed so the new buyer can purchase insurance. Please check with your Homeowner's Insurance to verify that they will accept Alumicon Connectors as a fix for aluminum wiring. If they do not accept Alumicon connectors then all aluminum wiring in the home would need to be re-wired.

Do you have aluminum wiring in your Tampa home? Call Small Jobs Electric® at (813) 652-0565 to receive safe, reliable solutions. We serve homeowners throughout Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties.

What Are Your Options?

There are two solutions to fix the issue of aluminum wiring: You can either rewire your home, or you can have us install aluminum connectors. Aluminum connectors are connectors with three separate ports to eliminate the intermixing of conductors. They coat the aluminum wires with thin layers of a silicone sealant that provides protection from oxidation. These connectors usually handle 12-10 solid aluminum and 18-10 solid or stranded copper. Unfortunately, they usually don’t work for large appliances because the voltage necessary to power these items is too high.

The number of aluminum connectors that can fit into a box varies. This, however, depends on how it is wired.

Usually, there are three connectors per box, each with its own purpose. The breakdown of each connector's purpose is as follows:

  • The first connector is for the hot wires
  • The second one is for your neutral wires
  • The third one is for the ground wires

Aluminum connectors are not reusable. Once you’ve used it, you cannot reuse it. This is because the sealant becomes ineffectual after the first installation.

Don’t Let Outdated Aluminum Wiring Put Your Family at Risk

If your home was built in the 1960s or 1970s, your home may be at risk of having aluminum wiring. This type of wiring has a very high chance of a fire hazard. For your safety as well as your families, please don’t take the risk!
