Chicopee Aluminum Wiring Replacement
Fully Licensed & Insured Electricians Serving Hampshire County
Aluminum wiring was commonly used in home construction from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s. It was later discovered that aluminum wiring poses a fire hazard, which is why a growing number of homeowners are replacing old aluminum wiring with safer options. Electrical Experts is proud to provide aluminum wiring replacement in Chicopee and throughout Easthampton and Hampshire County.
Dangers of Aluminum Wiring
Aluminum wiring is prone to corrosion and oxidizes when exposed to oxygen. As a result, it becomes a potential fire hazard in places where it is spliced or makes a connection with a switch, outlet, or circuit breaker. These hazardous risks increase over time, as the aluminum shrinks and expands with temperature changes, causing breaks in the circuit. This can lead to overheating, sparks, and fire.
Cost-Effective Replacement Solutions
When inspecting your aluminum wiring, many electricians will insist that your entire home needs to be rewired. While rewiring the entire house with copper wiring is certainly an effective solution, it is also very expensive. Fortunately, rewiring the whole house is not always necessary. Our experienced electricians are often able to provide a more cost-effective solution to complete aluminum wiring replacement in Chicopee by adding copper connection points to the ends of the aluminum wires.
We can add copper connection points where the wires connect with:
- Circuit breakers
If you have had copper connection points added in the past or you have old aluminum wiring and concerns about your electrical wires, you may want to have the wiring in your home inspected to determine the condition of the wires and the best course of action for your home. Aluminum retrofits should only be performed by qualified electricians to ensure your safety. Our rewiring technicians at Electrical Experts have the training and skills to accurately inspect your wiring and provide the necessary repairs to ensure the safety of you and your family.

What kind of light bulbs should I purchase?
Fluorescent bulbs are more expensive but save you money in the long run. A single incandescent light bulb can cost the same as 6 to 10 fluorescent bulbs – and the fluorescents last about 10 times longer. There are attractive compact units that illuminate more like a traditional bulb, giving off a pleasing, soft light, and many other shapes and types to choose from.
