Aluminum wiring has been discontinued since the 1970s but if you have an older home, you may still have it running through your walls.
If you think you have old aluminum wiring then it’s time to get inspected to see if you need to upgrade your wiring. Aluminum wiring tends to expand and contract which causes arcing on the device that it’s installed on and can potentially become a fire hazard.
You may not notice because the sheet rock isn’t flammable however the paper that holds the sheet rock is flammable. So overtime as the wiring expands, if you don’t replace it in time, it can catch on fire.
