Aluminum wired connections and splices have been reported to fail and overheat with no prior problems. From 1965 through the mid 1970’s, many builders installed aluminum branch circuit wiring due to a market copper shortage. Re-wired or new circuits in additions or new construction from that period may contain aluminum wiring. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission published a report on how to identify, and repair, this problem in your home. John Waters Inc. is the only contractor in the Greater Metro Louisville area certified to perform all 3 of the accepted repair methods, including the COPALUM method of repair.
