We are looking to update an aluminum wired house to make sure the connections at termination are all approved for Aluminum. Ideally, I’d like to purchase aluminum rated receptacles and switches, however I’ve spoken with:
Leviton, Hubbel, Pass & Seymour, Cooper wiring… ALL of them offer the aluminum switches. And they offer the old style of receptacles, but NONE of them offer the tamper proof receptacles rated for Alumunum- and NONE have plans to do so.
Which creates a dilemma. What do I do? Do I replace using the approved AL rated terminations, or do I use Alumiconn connectors (which they claim are CPSC approved) at the receptacles?
Are there GFI capable AL rated receptacles for Kitchen/Bath?
Also, are their light fixtures available that are made for AL wire?
What a headache! =)
Thanks for the help!
