If buying a homebuilt during this time period, there is a good chance that it contains aluminum wiring.But is aluminum wiring safe? The short answer is, yes. It is still in use in many applications even today, though not in residential branch circuits.
Did you know:"... Aluminum wiring in residential installations will operate as safely as any other type of wiring if the proper materials are used and it is installed as per the manufacturer's instructions and the Ontario Hydro Electrical Safety Code.Home buyers and owners are finding that many insurance companies will not provide or renew insurance coverage on properties with aluminum wiring unless it is inspected by the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) of Ontario, and repaired or replaced as necessary to make it safe.
