Aluminum Wiring & Rewiring in Denver

Upgrade to a Safer Electrical System in Denver & the Surrounding Area

Was your house built in the mid 1960’s-mid 1970’s? If so, your home may have been wired with aluminum wiring. If you live in an older home or property with aluminum wiring, it’s crucial to understand the potential hazards associated with it.

At Blue Sky, our Denver electricians specialize in providing professional aluminum rewiring services in Denver and the surrounding area, ensuring that your electrical system is safe, reliable, and up to code.

Aluminum vs Copper Wiring

Aluminum wiring was widely used in homes during the 1960s and 1970s due to its cost-effectiveness, since the price of copper sky-rocketed. However, aluminum wiring is quite dangerous and poses significant risks over time. Because it is a weaker metal than copper, aluminum is prone to oxidation. This can lead to loose connections in outlets, switches and light fixtures. Poor connections can cause the wire to overheat, which has a potential to cause a fire.

  Copper wiring is widely recognized for its superior conductivity, heat resistance, and durability. Unlike aluminum, copper is not susceptible to oxidation, making it a safer and more reliable choice for your electrical system.

How to Know if You Have Aluminum Wiring Problems

Recognizing the signs of aluminum wiring issues is crucial for ensuring your safety. 

If you experience any of the problems below, it might be time for an upgrade.

  • Flickering lights
  • Hot outlets
  • Frequently tripped circuit breakers

Outdated aluminum wiring can compromise the safety of your property and even pose a fire hazard. Upgrading to safer materials like copper wiring is essential for a secure electrical system!

Our Aluminum Rewiring Process

Our aluminum rewiring process begins with an initial assessment of your property’s electrical system. We plan and design the aluminum rewiring project to meet your specific needs. Our skilled electricians will carefully remove the old aluminum wiring and replace it with safe and durable copper wiring.

As part of the rewiring process, we’ll assess the capacity and functionality of your existing electrical panels. If necessary, we’ll recommend upgrading to larger capacity panels to accommodate your electrical needs.

Electrical FAQ's

  • What is involved in installing a hot tub?

    Are you thinking about getting a new hot tub? They can provide you a great way to relax and have fun with the people you love. However, you need to make sure that you have the right electrical setup before you try to use your new tub. Some hot tubs are “plug and play” so you can simply plug them into an outdoor electrical outlet. However, most hot tubs require more voltage than normal. This can mean installing a new circuit or upgrading an existing one so that your hot tub will function. Our experts from Blue Sky can take a look at your new hot tub and your existing electrical setup and get everything working well soon.

  • What should I do if my breakers keep tripping or my fuses keep blowing?

    Breakers flip every now and then and fuses blow. It’s only a problem when it keeps happening, either on the same circuit or on different ones. If you have problems on different circuits, the issue may lie in your fuse or breaker box. Get a pro to test it out and see what is going on. If there’s one circuit that keeps causing problems, make sure you don’t have too many high-wattage devices plugged into it. Try unplugging one to see if the problem continues. You may need to plug some devices in somewhere else or install a new circuit to handle the necessary wattage.

  • What can I do to prevent power surges?

    Avoid damage from power surges when you install a whole-home surge protector or use highly-rated surge protectors for all of your important plugs and outlets. If you find out that you are having regular power surges, remove any cheap electronic devices from the system and see if the surges continue. If they keep going, it’s time to bring in an electrical professional to test your system and find the problem.

  • When should I call a professional electrician?

    Bring in a professional for most electrical problems and installations. Working with electricity can be dangerous and it’s not worth an injury just to do it yourself. We know that people worry about the hassle and the cost of calling an electrician. At Blue Sky, we promise to do our work when it’s convenient for you. We also promise to work with you as much as possible on the cost of repairs or installations so you can have a safe, functional electrical system that you don’t have to worry about.

  • How can I improve my home’s lighting?

    There are so many things you can do to improve your lighting. We can install lights that highlight or spotlight certain features of a room or certain pieces of art. We can also install lights so that they are convenient for the areas where you read or work. Finally, we can update your lighting so that it fits in with the look and feel of your home and the latest trends if you care about those. Call us today to make your lighting better than it’s ever been.

  • Why are my electrical bills so high?

    Electrical bills can go up for many reasons. A surprising number of our customers find that their bills go up because the electrical company raises rates. They may notify you, but these notifications are easy to miss. If your company hasn’t raised rates, there are a number of places where your electrical system might be leaking electricity. The best way to find out what is going on in your home is to bring in an electrical professional from Blue Sky to find the problem and fix it quickly.

  • How can I know that my home’s electrical system is safe?

    Perform an electrical safety inspection at home at least once a year. Start by checking your fuse panel or breaker box. Make sure that it’s not overloaded and that there aren’t any loose wires or connections. If you have circuit breakers, flip a couple and make sure the box is working as designed. Next, examine all visible cords and wires. Make sure that there aren’t any exposed wires and that all cords are plugged in properly. Finally, if you have GFCI outlets in your home, check them to make sure they are fully functional.
