Have an option to either use AlumiConn connectors to remedy five aluminum branch circuits, or to replace the circuits with copper in order to qualify for a new policy with Citizen’s.
The AlumiConns would be cheaper initially, but I don’t know how Citizen’s is handling a home repaired in this fashion. I’ve read that while one may be able to obtain insurance with this fix done, the rates they get will be higher.
Replace AL wiring with copper, submit 4P showing all copper wire = premium 1200/yr.; or:
Use AlumiConns on the needed connections, submit 4P = premium 2000/yr.
In this example, it would seem to make sense to re-wire - but, I don’t know if that’s true and if they assign a higher rate to a remedied home versus one that was all copper to begin with… Hope my question is clear.
Anyone have any knowledge/input on this topic?
Appreciate the help -
