Electrical wiring is the nervous system of any home or business. It keeps us safe, comfortable, and functional. As important as proper electrical wiring is, it often gets overlooked because we can’t see it. Older buildings with outdated wiring can’t function properly and can even be dangerous. Whether you need a wiring inspection to see if your wiring is up to date for your needs or a wiring upgrade, Get Volts® has you covered.
In the 1960s and 1970s, home builders used aluminum wiring, however, the wiring was later tied to fire hazards as electrical systems in homes began to age. Because aluminum wiring shrinks and expands, its connections can loosen over time and lead to sparks and overheating. Get Volts® has upgraded countless aluminum wiring homes over the years.
- Copper Wiring
If your home has aluminum wiring, the first and most common solution is a complete rewiring of your home. Your aluminum wiring will be replaced with much safer and effective copper wiring.
- Pig Tailing
When complete rewiring is not an option, pig tailing is the next best solution. Pig tailing is the process of connecting the end of every aluminum wire in a home to a copper wire strand using a special connector. Pig tailing modernizes aluminum wiring enough to pass most local codes inspections.
Why Rewire Your Home?
