Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupters

Universal Home Experts recently posted an important home safety message, ‘Arcing in your electrical.’ We would like to provide more information on that topic.

What are arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs)? Why should they be installed in homes? Are they expensive? These are all common questions asked by home and business owners. AFCIs provide conventional safety functions, but its advanced design detects potentially dangerous electrical arcs and disconnects the power in the circuit. They help save lives and make properties safer since the main electrical failure is arcing. The cost of these are relatively inexpensive, so it is a great idea to add one to your property.
