Electrical Circuit Interrupters:
Did you know that all new homes and renovations must have power outlets equipped with electrical circuit interrupters as a safety and security measure?
Arc fault circuit interrupters, or AFCIs, are designed to protect against possible electrical fires. Worn or damaged wiring can cause electricity to be accidentally discharged across a circuit and lead to overheating wires and possible fires starting inside your walls. An AFCI outlet can detect electricity leaking out of a faulty wire and immediately stop the flow of electricity before a fire can start. As of 2002, all outlets in newly built or renovated bedrooms must be equipped with an arc fault circuit interrupter.
In rooms where water and electricity are close to one another, outlets with ground fault circuit interrupters, or GFCIs, must be present. This includes kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor receptacles, and others.
GFCI's continuously monitor the electricity that goes out and comes back in to the circuit, ensuring that it is always balanced. If it becomes unbalanced because the current has made contact with something or someone, the flow of electricity is immediately interrupted to prevent a possible electrocution.
