Copper Wire: The Right Choice For Your Property


If your home or business is wired with aluminum wiring — particularly if it is an older property — it may be time to consider getting it rewired with copper wiring or what is called an ‘aluminum to copper change over’. Aluminum wire poses a much greater fire threat and is less durable and conductive than copper. Once installed, copper wiring also requires much less maintenance than aluminum, which has a higher wear and tear rate. At Chesapeake Electric, our team of experienced electricians proudly performs aluminum to copper wire change over services for homes and business across Annapolis, MD. To have your wiring checked out, or to schedule a removal/installation, give our experts a call today!

Copper is the Only Way


Copper wire is not only cost-effective and energy-efficient — it’s also a safety necessity. When compared with older aluminum wire, copper wire is much less likely to fail to start an electrical fire. Recently, a national survey conducted by Franklin Research Institute for The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) determined that homes built before 1972, and wired with aluminum, are 55 times more likely to have wire connections at outlets reach “Fire Hazard Conditions” than homes wired with copper. For the safety of those on your property, copper wiring is a clear choice.

In addition to being safer than aluminum wiring, copper wiring also has greater resilience, higher durability, and higher performance than aluminum.

Solutions We Provide
If you have noticed any wire-related problems in your home, or would simply like to find out if you currently have aluminum wire, do not attempt to investigate your wiring yourself. This can lead to expensive damages and life-threatening injuries. Instead, contact a certified electrician to help you with your wiring needs. Our aluminum to copper change over implementation methods are:
  • Image
    Full Replacement Of Aluminum Cable
    Full rewiring is the generally recommended solution when it comes to aluminum to copper installation. A qualified electrician will inspect your house and give you recommendations on the ease of implementation to do a full copper rewire, and remove the aluminum wiring.
  • Image
    Implementing an AlumiConn Connector
    In some cases a house-wide rewire might not be practical based on an inspection of the house by a professional electrician, and in consultation with you. In that case, there is an alternative solution available using the AlumiConn Connector to ensure your house still follows the necessary safety regulations.

Testimonials


After some electrical troubles came up, I knew exactly who to turn to. I have trusted this company before, and specifically one of their electrician’s, Ian. He is extremely knowledgeable, honest, and takes the time to explain what is wrong and the different solutions he can offer. Never pushy about selling additional work, and does fantastic work. When I need more electrical work done, I’ll be back again!

Just found my new go to for electric work. Thanks Zach for the thorough service you provided. Give this guy a raise. He's the only one coming back to get work done at my home. I told you I'd leave a good word only if you did a great job. Well here is. Thanks again

From the original sales visit/estimator visit, through site survey, interface with business office, and now, the Day 1 generator install, the Chesapeake team has been great ! Derek & the install crew obviously have strong expertise and they were prompt, friendly, polite and engaging, offering clear and detailed answers to our questions. The interface with Derek was the single most positive contractor experience we have ever had ! If this is consistently the culture at Chesapeake, we’re looking forward to a long relationship with the company ! Many thanks ! Derek’s visit today (12/15/23) continues our experience of consistently “best in class” service from Chesapeake Electric ! Thanks !

I hired Chesapeake Electric to convert 7 recessed lights to LED and hang a new light fixture. Kevin was my technician. Someone else was with him but I’m sorry I don’t remember his name. Both were very well spoken, friendly and knowledgeable. Kevin explained the work that would be done and helped me decide on the color temperature and brightness of the LED lights. I was a little indecisive but Kevin was patient with me. Kevin did an inspection of my home and found that the service panel outside was badly damaged. He recommended that it be replaced and explained why. He came back the next day and repaired it and swapped out two breakers. Overall, I was very pleased with the work that was done. I especially appreciated Kevin’s willingness to take the time to explain the work so that I could understand what would be done. I will definitely use this company again.

I was pleasantly surprised throughout my experience with Chesapeake Electric. Another service had scheduled and cancelled my appointment within 24 hours leaving me with a short window to deal with an issue. Chesapeake had me scheduled in short order and my Service Crew Ethan and Tre ( sp not certain sorry), were great. Courteous and competent throughout the service call. I got my money's worth with the trouble shooting AND we got a lot done in 1 day!. There was even an unanticipated hiccup that resulted in Ethan needing to double back to troubleshoot and fix a fix, which he did graciously and in a timely fashion. I was impressed by Ethan and therefore with the company, happy employees make good customer service experiences, this was a lovely marriage of technical competence and excellent service. Thank You.
