GFCI and AFCI Outlets
GFCIs (ground fault circuit interrupters) and AFCIs (arc fault circuit interrupters) are two types of outlets that can keep your home's electrical system as safe as possible.
- GFCI outlets help prevent you or anyone else in your home from being shocked or electrocuted by any electrical equipment. They work by monitoring the difference between hot and neutral wires, and they will instantly break the circuit if an imbalance is detected. These devices can prevent serious injuries in the event of a malfunction with any piece of electrical equipment. They're often required in bathrooms and kitchens.
- AFCI outlets protect your electrical system from arc faults, which occur when an electrical current veers off of its intended path. Arc faults can be caused by any number of things, including a fallen tree or damaged wiring. AFCIs detect arc faults and cut off the circuit before it can overheat. They are estimated to prevent between 50% and 75% of fires that would otherwise occur.
Our electricians can make sure these devices are present where they are needed in your home.
