Everyday technology is improving the way we live, creating a better and richer life. Just look at everything you own, game consoles, iPhones, flat-screen TVs. We can even control everything from our phones and tablets. Technology is also has advanced in the electrical industry. One of the best advancements in electrical history is the AFCI breaker and AFCI receptacle. These two components alone, can give you peace of mind knowing that you and your family are safe and protected from most electrical hazards.

The AFCI Breaker

AFCI breakers are a requirement by the National Electrical Code. In fact over the last 6 years, the NEC is requires that most breakers in your home have to be AFCI. The AFCI breaker is the only breaker on the market that can prevent a fire, keeping you and your family safe. The AFCI breaker is designed to detect a wide range of arcing electrical faults that can happen in your electrical wiring, devices, outlets, switches and other associated devices. If an arc fault is detected the breaker will immediately turn off, reducing the risk of an electrical fire or shock.

The AFCI Receptacle

The AFCI receptacle offers additional protection from potentially dangerous hazards caused by devices plugged into the outlets.

Proper protection is essential to protect you and your family. Arc faults can happen in the walls, in the attic or underneath the home. Loose connections or faulty lamp wiring can also cause arc faults, which lead to fires.

With just a little research on the internet, you will see that there are thousands of people whom have lost their home, possessions and loved ones. The numbers are staggering. 

An arc can be so intense, that it can create temperatures up to 10,000°F instantaneously.  When an arc occurs, typically it affects the nearby material such as wood or insulation causing a fire to spread rather quickly.

Overall I was very pleased with Switched Electric's work. I originally had them out for the security light, and then based upon that job brought them out for future jobs. Each job was completed as scheduled and with high quality workmanship. Work site was also completely cleaned when done. And time has passed since job completion—and all is working well.
