Replacing Aluminum Wiring in Calgary

Aluminum wiring was considered a cheaper method of wiring a house at those times however it was discovered that it causes a significant fire hazard. Professional electricians can advise on the options for correcting and making your house safe with either a complete rewire of your entire house, or utilizing safe technology and creating a copper “pigtail” in each device location, or installing the correct CO/ALR devices where pigtails are not feasible.
