GFCI & AFCI PROTECTION
Protection against electrocution and fires!
Never worry about electrocutions or electrical fires from your outlets again. Now required by electrical code, GFCI and AFCI safety devices are meant to detect dangerous fault conditions and shut down the power before it can go on to cause any damage.
GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupters)
A ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) is an electrical outlet with an extra line of defense to protect from accidental electrocution. When a GFCI outlet detects a difference in the amount of energy passing through and returning back to the device, it immediately removes electricity from the circuit.
At Universal Home Experts, we recommend that you install GFCI faults throughout your home to make it a much safer place. In fact, GFCI faults are now required by electrical code to be installed in certain areas of your home where moisture is present.
Call Universal Home Experts today to find out more information on ground-fault circuit interrupters and to see if your home meets current electrical safety code.
AFCI (arc fault circuit interrupters)
The primary function of an arc fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) is to detect electrical arcs and work to prevent fires by shutting off power before any permanent damage can be done. There are thousands of preventable residential fires every year caused by electrical issues. A main culprit of these fires is arc faults.
With an arc fault circuit interrupter installed in your home, you’ll have a permanent protector against potential electrical fires. Any unintended flow of electricity will be detected and shut down.
With both GFCI and AFCI protection installed in your outlets or directly on your electrical panel, you can sleep easy knowing that you electrical system is protected. You shouldn’t have to fear for your home.
