Do You Have Aluminum Wiring? Learn About the Cost of Rewiring an Old House in New Jersey
Back in the 1960’s and early 1970’s the price of copper skyrocketed. For average homeowners at the time, that meant installing aluminum wiring. Aluminum wiring is an inferior product. Aluminum is softer and prone to damage. It also has a bigger problem with creeping. Creeping is all about the movement of the aluminum wires. As electricity moves through the aluminum it heats up more than copper and the wires stretch. This movement, or creeping, can cause rubbing and friction with other surfaces. The wires can be damaged. Overtime, homeowners with aluminum wiring began to notice a few problems with their electricity. If you are having electrical issues such as flickering lights or overheating, contact a professional electrician to learn more about the cost of rewiring an old house. Aluminum wires are prone to overheating, which can cause catastrophic house fires. We offer wiring installation services for homes that have aluminum wires to ensure your family and friends are safe. Team Electric offers electrical installation services in locations such as Howell, Middletown, Brick, Elizabeth, Tom’s River, Trenton, and Old Bridge, New Jersey.

Knob & Tube Wiring Doesn’t Mix Well With Moisture. Learn More About the Cost of Rewiring an Old House
Homes that were built in the 1880s to 1940s will have knob and tube wiring, unless someone has already remodeled the home. Knob and tube wiring has ceramic components that the separated wires will either connect to or run through. There is nothing inherently unsafe with knob and tube designs. Since their wires are separated they are able to dissipate heat more effectively than today’s wires. That doesn’t mean they don’t have problems. First off, knob and tube wires lack a ground which means they are not compatible with three pronged appliances. This issue can easily be solved. Ground conductors were not used either, but you can add these into an existing system. Another issue is the materials in knob and tube. They were not made with water in mind. If heavy moisture is an issue in your home, contact our electricians by phone at 732-201-3305 to learn more about wiring installation projects. Moisture will cause the materials surrounding the knob and tube wiring to deteriorate. We recommend scheduling an electrical installation service visit if you have issues with water or moisture.
One of the biggest problems with knob and tube wiring are the alterations made by the inexperienced. Alterations come in many forms, but the most common are spliced wires. Homeowners would splice the knob and tube wires to run more wires. Splices are trouble, if done incorrectly they can create a fire risk. So while there is nothing inherently wrong with knob and tube wiring, amateur alterations are the biggest problem.
