Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCI)
An AFCI is a new type of circuit breaker which recognizes fire hazards and immediately shuts off the power. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Healthy Homes report lists lack of AFCIs among the primary residential hazards associated with burns and fire-related injuries.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI)
GFCIs are special outlets that have saved thousands of people from electrocution over the last three decades. If GFCIs were installed in older homes, experts suggest that 70 percent of the electrocutions that occur each year in the home could be prevented.
