The heart of your homeʼs electrical system is the main electrical panel, which contains a number of circuit breakers. Normal circuit breakers protect the wiring in your house. Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters prevent fires caused by loose or broken wires and Ground Fault Interrupters protect you personally from an electric shock. Though uncommon, issues may arise within your homeʼs electrical systems. A general understanding of your homeʼs circuit breakers may help you prevent problems in the future.
