Circuit interrupters: GFCI, AFCI

There are various types of electrical devices designed to help you prevent fires. Some examples are Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI), Arc Fault Interrupters (AFCI), smoke detectors, and carbon monoxide detectors. They are both, inexpensive and reliable, but most importantly, they help prevent electrical fires. Although most of these devices are simple and easy to install, we recommend that you have a certified and qualified electrician to perform these installations. Signs of electric arcs, wire overheating, insulation deterioration, or miswiring can be easily overlooked by the untrained eye, but quickly detected by an experienced electrician. Besides, how much is your safety worth? Don’t let a few dollars be the cause of a necessary major repair, a devastating electrical fire, or even electrocution.
