Every year, over 40,000 household fires are caused by electrical wiring issues. These fires cause over 350 deaths and over 1,400 injuries every year. In addition, arc faults are one of the leading causes of these dangerous home fires. An arc fault circuit interrupter works to detect an electrical arc and shut off power before a fire starts. Many homeowners believe that circuit breakers protect against electrical arcs, but in reality, circuit breakers only protect against overloads and short circuits.
