Arc Fault Interrupters
Prevent Electrical Fires by Installing Arc Fault Interrupters
If you have certain electrical circuits in your home, you may be required to have ARC Fault Interrupters or AFCIs. These devices are required by the National Electrical Code in some situations.
How are you supposed to know if you need one or not though? The experienced HVAC technicians from Hinson Mechanical Company are up-to-date on all local, state, and federal codes. We can look at your system and let you know right away if you could benefit from having one of these AFCIs installed.
AFCIs create an arc through an unplanned path of electrical current. This can create heat of up to 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit. To prevent your electrical source from becoming the starting point of a fire, these AFCIs will detect the electrical faults. Electrical fires are common and can happen to you or anyone. Instead of living through every day wondering if your home and your family are protected from this deadly occurrence, talk to us about your AFCI needs.
Remodeling an Older Home?
While new construction typically complies with modern electrical safety regulations, when you open the circuit board of an older home, you may be in for a shock – literally. As technology advances, one important benefit is that homes and commercial properties are made safer for their occupants. Faulty electrical systems are responsible for fires and other damage – and all of it unnecessarily. With a visit from a pro, you can find out whether your home or business is safe – or if it’s on the brink of a serious electrical problem. Installing ARC Fault Interrupters is one simple way you can ensure the safety of everyone and everything in your building.
