This type of wiring was once used in homes during the 1960s and 1970s. It was widely used because it was readily available. Aluminum tends to have a greater conductivity than other types of metals. It was eventually discontinued.
One of the downfalls to having this type of wiring is that if it is not installed properly it can cause a house fire. The expansion of this wiring is also referred to as “cold creep.” It’s called this because it expands when it’s hot and contracts when cold.
