Does your residential or commercial building currently use aluminum wiring for electricity?

Delta Electric is here to guide you through the risks associated with aluminum wiring and the services that are geared toward increasing the safety of your space.
Understanding Aluminum Wiring
Aluminum wiring was once thought to be the superior electrical wiring method for homes and businesses, as it was a better conductor of electricity. However, it’s been discovered that aluminum wiring poses several safety risks.
The primary risk associated with aluminum wiring is that it can become loose over time, leading to sparking and increased resistance in the wiring. This can cause overheating and potentially lead to a fire. Additionally, aluminum wiring may not make good connections with copper terminals, which can also be a fire hazard.

The Copalum Crimp Method
The Copalum crimp method for converting aluminum wiring to a safer type of wiring involves using a unique tool called a Copalum crimper to crimp copper sleeves onto the ends of the aluminum wires. These copper sleeves provide a secure and stable connection between the aluminum wire and copper terminals.
The AlumiConn connector converts aluminum wiring to a more stable type of wiring. It is a mechanical connector explicitly designed for aluminum wiring use. It connects a short piece of copper wire to the existing aluminum wire, which is then connected to an electrical device, creating a mechanical and electrical bond between the materials.
Full Replacement With Copper Wiring
Replacing the aluminum wiring in your building with copper wiring can be performed by Delta Electric’s experienced electricians. This process includes identifying the aluminum wiring in the building, securely removing it, and performing a complete replacement with copper wiring for maximum efficiency and security.
