Q.Why not just tie into aluminum wiring?

A. I would never add to an aluminum wire system. Instead, add new wiring back to the panel for any new loads. You are assuming a lot of responsibility messing with old wiring in general, more so with aluminum. Taking on a system you know nothing about is a big step, and the aluminum systems can be flaky.
