GFCI and AFCI Protection in Raleigh, NC
GFCI and AFCI outlets have undergone a lot of changes since the conception of the first bulb. Two of the best innovations in modern technology are the GFCI or AFCI outlets. These outlets are simple in design but incredibly effective in operation. You need GFCI and AFCI outlets in your home.

Why You Need a GFCI Outlet
GFCI stands for "Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter." GFCI outlets work to protect your home from electrical shock. It’s really easy to conflate a GFCI outlet with a fuse if you do a little superficial research. A fuse is designed to protect your electrical system from voltage fluctuations and a GFCI outlet seems to do the same on the surface. However, a GFCI outlet is pointedly designed to protect you from receiving high voltage shocks.
GFCI outlets are great for rooms in your home where there is a lot of water like bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens. Each home is unique though, so it’s best to talk to a professional electrician from our team to understand your home’s needs rather than to assume. Contact our team today to learn more.
What an AFCI Outlet Does for Your Home
AFCI stands for "Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupter." These systems work to protect your home from electrical fire. Although GFCI and AFCI outlets are regulated differently, they’re often used simultaneously to protect your home from electrical hazards. U.S. codes require AFCI protection for most of the outlets in your home. If you don’t have one of these systems in your home, it’s more than likely that you need one to really ensure safety and peace of mind. Our professional electricians can assess your home and determine your needs. We won’t upsell you either—we’re only going to suggest the essentials. Contact our team for quality work that’s always up to electrical code.
