The AFCI Breaker
Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) Breakers are specially designed circuit breakers that help prevent electrical fires. Arc Faults are the leading cause of electrical fires in the North America, so AFCI Breakers are an important component of your home’s electrical system. This special breaker works by monitoring the electrical current in your electrical wiring devices, outlets, switches and other associated devices. Once an unwanted arc is detected the breaker will shut off immediately which reduces the chance of an electrical shock or fire.
