The house that I currently reside in has CU-Clad AL wiring. When using wire nuts to join old wiring to new, ie putting in new light fixtures, are there any special considerations? I know that AL only wiring has many hazards. I also know should use only receptacles and switches that are marked CU-Clad for this type of wire.

I have never heard of copper clad aluminum. When was this house built? Are you sure it is not tin or nickle plated copper?

Do you know of a product that I can use to join CU-clad AL wire to CU wire? I am having trouble finding devices that are listed to join CU-clad wire to CU wire.
