According to The Consumer Product Safety Commission (SPSC) more than 50% of yearly electrical fires could have been prevented with Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCIs). An AFCI detects hazardous arcing and blocks the circuit, thus reducing the potential of fire. It is for this very reason the National Electric Code (NEC) has progressively increased specific areas in the home required to be protected by AFCIs. There are different types of AFCIs therefore certain areas in the home require specific types.
