Bath Remodel, Switch out AL Wiring?
 
I am getting ready to gut my master bath. My house was built in 1972 and has Aluminium wiring. I am wondering if I should rewire that branch with copper while I have everything open. I have done some basic wiring in the past, adding switches and outlets to a branch, but never added a new circuit and run wire. Is this something i can tackle myself? I will be doing all the renovations myself and would prefer not to have to hire someone to do this if I can run it myself.

Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.

I would replace it while you have the ability to do so. You can add the new 20 amp circuit for the receptacle too.

The 20 amp circuit can be shared with the lighting and fans if they are in the same bathroom or you can add a 15 amp lighting circuit for them.
