Why are the wires on the switches made out of aluminum? My house has copper wires and if I put copper and aluminum together they will react with each other and cause a fire....

@Noahnickodemus The wires are actually not aluminum even though they look like they are. The wires are copper, but the ends are coated with tin to protect them.
