All of our services are aluminum. We usually use aluminum for anything over 100A because of cost
Bruh, I don't run the company
I would say that the majority of electrical fires ive been to has had aluminum wires and zynscos
As long as you use pertrox or something, and torque everything down, it works good. I've been on a lot of huge, high profile commercial installations that use aluminum.
I would definitely advise scheduled harmonic checks. The aluminum conductors have a history of shifting

I wish I knew for sure, those are fuse holders for sure, it's on the 2nd floor, so I'm not sure if it's the main.
I didn't have a lot of time to look at it, I had to run across town to help a lady out kind of last minute, it's Derby weekend so it's crazy around town right now.
Haha these old homes have really neat stuff in them.
I bet it was a box added for something cool like a shock therapy machine.
Electricity is based
I love it when a plan comes together
Hah cool pipe run
Fuuuuck, I wish I had a scissor lift
It is nice 😄
The final straw that makes me go Union
