Copper Vs. Aluminum Wiring: How to Make the Right Choice
There is no single factor more important than others when choosing wiring. For instance, copper is a better conductor of electricity, and it isn’t close. But that isn’t the only thing our professionals consider when we perform wire preparation. It is important to understand that electrical wiring is complex, and completing projects correctly requires extensive knowledge of electrical concepts. In addition to conducting electricity, we consider the following elements:
- Cable Size: If you have high-voltage needs for longer distances, your best bet is aluminum. It is more economical and conducts electricity better in this circumstance.
- Insulation Materials: Aluminum has 61 percent of copper’s conductivity but only 30 percent of its weight. The insulation materials used are also beneficial if you choose aluminum.
