Expert AFCI Installation to Protect Your Home

Was your home built before 1999? If so, it could be susceptible to a potential fire hazard. Prior to 1999, installing arc fault breakers (AFCI breakers) was not mandatory in new home construction. The majority of homeowners are unaware of the risks associated with arc faults and what steps they should take if their home is in jeopardy. Fortunately, Mountain Home Services is here to guide you in the right direction.

Understanding Arc Faults & Arc Fault Breakers

What Is an Arc Fault?

An arc fault is an unintentional discharge of electricity in a circuit. When this happens, the arcing faults can reach extremely high temperatures, upwards of 9,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Arcing typically happens one of two ways, which are:

  • Natural or normal arcing occurs when a light switch or a motor-driven appliance like a vacuum is turned on.
  • Unsafe arc faults occur in series or parallel faults in wires, electrical devices, or connected loads.

What Causes an Arc Fault?

Arc faults can happen anywhere throughout your entire electrical system at home for several reasons, including the following:

  • Loose electrical connections
  • Old, aging electrical circuits
  • Worn-out electrical insulation
  • Damaged appliance cords
  • Accidentally pierced electrical cable behind drywall with a drill bit, nail, or screw.
  • Tightly hammered electrical cable staples into studs during rough-in wiring.
  • Cord exposure to heat vents, sunlight, or foot traffic

What is an Arc Fault Breaker?

ARC fault breakers are a crucial component of any modern electrical system. These innovative devices are designed to detect and prevent dangerous electrical arcs that can cause fires in your home. By quickly interrupting the flow of electricity when an arc is detected, arc fault breakers help keep your family and property safe from harm.
