Copalum Aluminum Crimping

For properties with "old technology" aluminum wiring, Giombetti Electric is one of the few companies in the northeast who is certified and equipped with tooling to provide one of the U.L. approved methods of correcting overheating of aluminum conductors. This method uses the AMP COPALUM Retermination Program—the only procedure considered a permanent replacement (when applied to every aluminum electrical connection) by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Some warning signs that can indicate a fire hazard within 15- and 20-ampere aluminum wiring circuits are:

  • Warm-to-the-touch face plates on outlets or switches
  • Discolored outlets
  • Flickering lights
  • Circuits that don't work
  • Smell of burning plastics
  • Smoke coming from the outlet
