Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters
An arc fault circuit interrupter or a AFCI detects electrical arcs and can prevent fires by shutting off dangerous electrical circuits.
In addition, arc faults are one of the leading causes of these dangerous home fires. An arc fault circuit interrupter works to detect an electrical arc and shut off power before a fire starts. Many homeowners believe that circuit breakers protect against electrical arcs, but in reality, circuit breakers only protect against overload and short circuits.
