Newly Rewired with Aluminum
I recently purchased and gutted an old house (circa 1870). In the process of renovating, I had the entire house re-wired. The HVAC installer told me this morning that the house was partially re-wired with aluminum (I believe that the 110s are copper and the 220s are aluminum). The contract states that the house would be re-wired according to national code. Is aluminum up to code? I assumed that the house would be re-wired with copper. It's already passed inspection by both the bank and the city inspector (a personal friend of the electrician) and the renovation is virtually complete. Would I have to rip out the sheetrock to replace the aluminum? I still have one more check to release to the electrician.
