The electrical wiring in your home is a major part of your home and should not be ignored.
Today’s homes require more electrical capacity and circuits then what most older homes have available. Homes today have much more electronics, lighting fixtures, and appliances then what an electrical service on a home built in the 60’s or 70’s can safely handle.
Several homes built in the 60’s and 70’s were installed with Alumimun romex wire and that wire is not known to be a fire hazard and safety concern.
The main reason that Alumimun wire is considered to be a fire hazard is because Alumimun is a soft metal that expands and contracts with temperature change and create loose connections which are a source for excessive heat from making a poor electrical connection.
