Summary: Safe Practices with Aluminum Electrical Wiring.


Aluminum Wiring is Great When Connected Properly


Aluminum wire is now used in several locations for larger electrical circuits, and is safe and reliable when installed and connected correctly.

Aluminum wire may be used in non-restricted locations with wiring devices specifying the AL-CU designation. Splicing aluminum wire with copper wire requires the use of an anti-corrosion inhibitor and approved wire connectors.

There are restricted areas, and some types of structures where where aluminum wire is not permitted. Please check with your local building authority for information about installing aluminum wire for your application.
