Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) Installation

AFCI outlets are essential in modern homes. With a quarter century record of unparalleled customer satisfaction and high-quality workmanship, we’re trained to safely install AFCI breakers, giving you peace of mind and protection. Here’s some additional information you need to know about AFCI outlets:

An AFCI outlet is designed to detect and stop electrical arcs, which can lead to electrical fires. Similar to AFCI circuit breakers, these outlets are equipped with technology to detect and respond to electrical arc faults. It’s an important safety feature in homes, particularly in areas susceptible to damaged wiring. Our team ensures a seamless and safe AFCI outlet installation, integrating it into your existing electrical system.

The National Electrical Code mandates AFCI protection in various areas of your home, including bedrooms, living rooms, and other spaces prone to electrical devices and usage. If you don’t already have AFCI outlets in these areas, call our licensed electricians for a new outlet or breaker installation. We will make sure these new additions meet electrical code and are safe to use.

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) Installation

GFCI outlets, also known as GFCI receptacles, are crucial for preventing electrical shocks in areas where electricity and water may come into contact.

A GFCI outlet works by constantly monitoring the amount of current that is flowing into electrical devices and automatically turning off the power to the circuit if there is an imbalance or leakage. GFCI receptacles are especially vital if you have children or pets in your home. There are also GFCI breakers that also monitor the flow of current in your electrical panel.

What Is a GFCI Outlet?

The focus of GFCI outlet installation is different from AFCI outlets, and they are installed in different locations. Rather than arc faults, GFCIs are designed to protect against ground faults, which are a different — but equally critical — electrical concern. Ground faults occur when an electrical current unintentionally travels through an unintended path to the ground. This can happen when there is a malfunction in an electrical device or an issue with the wiring. Similar to GFCI breakers found in the main breaker box, they quickly shut off power if a ground fault is detected.

Which Option Is Better?

Trick question! Determining whether an AFCI or GFCI receptacle is better depends on the specific needs of your electrical system and your desired level of protection. GFCI and AFCI devices both offer unique safety benefits. It's recommended to have a combination of both in your home. Our team can assess your property and recommend the appropriate AFCI and GFCI receptacles and breakers.

Where Do You Need GFCI Protection?

GFCI outlet installation is important in any location where water is in close proximity to electricity. Recommended rooms for GFCI outlets include but aren’t limited to bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and garages. If you’re unsure of whether a certain area in your home needs a GFCI outlet, contact us for an electrical safety evaluation. We will recommend locations to place your GFCI outlets so that they can provide power safely throughout your home.

Additional Outlet Installation & Circuit Breaker Services

We offer other types of AFCI & GFCI outlet installation in Bucks & Montgomery County, PA. Other outlets we specialize in include:  

  • Outdoor outlet installation: If you need outdoor outlet installation, you will almost certainly require GFCI outlets. Because these outlets are exposed to precipitation, any circuit that is outdoors should have ground fault protection.
  • Outlet box installation: Installation of an outlet box entails installing a protective enclosure for your outlets. For safety, these enclosures should be installed with each outlet
  • Dryer outlet installation: Even when compared to other “energy hog” appliances, dryers can be particularly energy-intensive. If you want your dryer to work properly without constantly tripping a circuit breaker, you may need a special kind of outlet called a 240-volt outlet. We will install this outlet with a separate circuit so that ground faults will not occur.
