New Code Update Alert: One of the newest codes to be updated involves arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs).  This code requires that all  receptacles and lighting in the living areas of your home must be protected by an arc fault circuit interrupter, this can be done by installing a AFCI style circuit breaker in your electrical panel and installing an AFCI style receptacles at the beginning of the circuit. Arc fault circuit interrupters are designed to prevent fires by detecting an unintended electrical arc and disconnecting the power before the arc starts a fire.   Electrical regulations are set by local city, state or national legislation.
