The aluminum abandoned base you see on the 220 volt apparatus and Aluminum Magnet Wire circuits do not affectation a problem. If aluminum affairs are alone askance together, like you would with copper, the affairs aggrandize and arrangement afresh accepted flows through them which produces calefaction from the poor affiliation and if the affairs has oxidized, this will calefaction up the affiliation even further, causing a abeyant for overheating and a accessible fire.
How can I acquaint if the abode has aluminum wiring?
The best way to apperceive is to have it absolute by an electrician or home inspector. You can analysis yourself but of course, you charge to be careful. I do not advance that you abolish the breaker console awning which will appearance all the base from the circuits, but you could about-face the breaker off to a allowance and abolish the awning plates to the ablaze switches and receptacles and alleviate the screws that authority them in the electrical box.
Pull the about-face or bowl out and attending at the bald wire about the affiliation screw. Aluminum will be ablaze silver. This is not to be abashed with tinned chestnut base which has a addled argent finish, but this was acclimated in a abounding beforehand time.
What appropriate precautions charge to be taken if alive with aluminum wiring?
My best admonition is to have all the base evaluated by a accountant ECCA Wire for safety, bigger one that is accustomed with aluminum and if you can accumulate from alteration out receptacles, switches and lighting that would be best, just don't blend with it.
