aluminum wiring?

Yes,

It's aluminum wiring. However, this is not the aluminum wiring you need to be concerned with. The aluminum wiring that you need to be on the lookout for are the single-strand aluminum conductors used on single-pole breakers for general lighting and kitchen appliance circuits.

These are conductors on a large 240 volt appliance such as an electric furnace, stove/oven, hot-tub heater, etc. This is not the stuff that the insurance companies are concerned about.

You also might want to mention that the service is three phase.

He said that this is the supply to the heat pump (not the main). Those are not the main breakers, they are the disconnects for the equipment, it just happens that there are 3 breakers in the pic instead of 2. While this may be 3 phase, there is not enough info in the post to determine that.

Three? I only see one 3-pole breaker. Check out his other post here and look at the second photo:

You'll see that it's the same panel. Now can you tell whether it's 3-phase or not? [:-eyebrow
