Ceiling Fan, Aluminum Wiring

I want to install ceiling fans in my home, but it is wired with aluminum wire. Is there any safe way to do this? I know that it is not safe to wire the fans to the aluminum wire. What do I do short of rewiring the whole house?

Just use wire nuts made for connecting aluminum to copper. You'll find them at any home improvement center.

The fact that you are using AL wiring does not mean you can not connect it to the fan. The problem with AL wiring is that is difficult to get a good tight connection. Use John's advice and get the right connectors. You should not have a problem.
