Arc Fault Circuit Breaker Kent
Whether a residential or commercial property, electrical systems in all buildings need circuit-breakers and surge protectors to eliminate the risk of circuit overloads and electrical fire accidents. Installing an arc fault circuit breaker in your Kent, WA area building helps recognize arcing faults and interrupts the circuit which prevents fires.
Have you ever heard of AFCI breaker or arc-fault circuit interrupter? This device:
- Provides overload protection
- Prevents electrical fires
- Averts short circuits
An AFCI is a product that is designed to detect arcing electrical faults to help reduce the electrical system from being the source of a fire. Arcs do not just happen. When you have an AFCI in place, sudden surges of power, or arcs, are detected and the AFCI “trips”. If an arc fault circuit breaker in your Kent area property has “tripped” call Reinhart Electric.
