Arc Fault Breakers

Why does my home need arc-fault breakers?

To protect against arc-faults, which can very easily turn into electrical fires. In 2002, the National Electric Code (NEC) made a code change that required arc-fault breakers to be installed for bedroom circuits in all NEW homes. Since the technology was not required in homes built before 2002, we recommend adding them to ensure safety and protection to your home.

What is an example of how arc-faulting could happen?

In a home where wires are stapled too tight to the wood, over time the energy flowing through the wire may start to arc with the metal staple which will create enormous amounts of heat.
