COPALUM Aluminum Wire Repair
Many homes built, expanded, or remodeled between 1965 and 1973 contain potentially hazardous aluminum wiring.
According to a report published by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (linked and reproduced below), homes containing aluminum wire manufactured before 1972 are far more likely to develop a fire hazard than homes wired with copper, a problem that worsens as the home ages.
Older aluminum wiring tends to deterioriate over time, and can eventually reach dangerously high temperatures even though it is still electrically functional. These high temperatures can lead to connection burnouts, causing fires that may lead to injury and death.
