Aluminum wiring must be copper-tailed for safety reasons. Aluminum wiring, mostly used in older Elgin homes, is safe when properly installed, but over time it can become a safety hazard. Aged and rusted aluminum overheats very easily, and affects the flow of electricity in your home or work space, this is the effect of oxidization.
The good news is that these wires are replaceable. However, replacement isn't always necessary. Aluminum wiring needs to be treated and maintained. It is the only way to prevent oxidization. One way to do this, would be to regularly tighten your wiring connections, this can improve safety and lower costs considerably. It’s a great way to avoid rewiring your entire home.
Knob and Tube Wiring
While knob and tube wiring is safe, Elgin homeowners should be weary of the issues that accompany these systems. Firstly, there is no ground wire in knob and tube systems; and this is problematic. Secondly, there is the danger of a fire threat partly due to the breakdown of wiring insulation.
Another downfall is that most insurers will not provide or renew coverage in homes with knob and tube wiring. Structures with this type of wiring usually require total replacement before it can be approved for insurance coverage.
