Charlotte Home Inspector Explains the Hazards of Aluminum Wiring

Single strand aluminum wiring was used during the time of the Vietnam War. The problem with this wiring that was used in the 60’s and early 70’s is that it will heat up and arc where it is connected. They could also heat up and create a fire hazard because the breaker wouldn’t trip. There are fixes for single strand that mostly involve some type of pigtailing.
