Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter
Arc faults are one of the leading causes of home fires. An Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) is used to help detect electrical arcs, and helps to shut off power before a fire starts.
Better protection than circuit breakers
Many homeowners believe that a circuit breaker will protect against these arcs, but circuit breakers only protect against overloads and short circuits. Arc fault circuit interrupters are a code requirement and should be installed on all residential homes as a safety measure.
Allgood Electric can install AFCIs in your home, which will help reduce the risk of a fire cause by an arc, and allow you to rest easy.
