AFCI Outlets & Breakers

AFCI Breakers & Outlets

The only breakers on the market today that can prevent fire and keep you and your family safe are AFCI Breakers. An AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter) Breaker works by monitoring the electrical currents in your electrical wiring devices, outlets, switches and other devices. An AFCI breaker will shut off immediately if an unwanted electrical arc is detected and will reduce the chance of an electrical shock or fire.

The AFCI Outlets

The AFCI outlets is an added layer of protection for your home by protecting you from the arc faults that come out of devices that are plugged into your outlets. Over 150,000 fire cases a year are contributed to arc faults due to shoddy electrical work.

The temperatures of arc faults can quickly reach of up to 10,000°F and cause significant damage. Arcs can occur in many places throughout the home and even under the house.

What Others Say About Us

I was extremely pleased with the work Joe did for me this past week and wanted to say something positive so others would consider him for jobs.  But the rating has to be done through a google account, and I do not want to have an account with them - the information required is personal, and I have no doubt sold immediately to places that do solicitations.  But if there is a way to insert my comments, so they contribute to the rating system, here they are. I wanted to say this:  I have an older home and a not-so-robust budget.   Joe inspired confidence with his knowledge, solved a sticky problem for me with my new range, left everything looking good and accommodated my work schedule.  His fees were competitive and, most importantly,  I am confident the work will stand up to the test of time.  I would recommend him highly to anyone asking for an electrician.

I hired Joe Bartels and Best Electric Service to add a 240V circuit for a hot tub at my home. I couldn't have been happier with their thoroughness and customer focus. They worked with our installation schedule, listened to my input and were creative in routing the final conduit. Quick and very professional. They have my highest recommendation!

I called Best Electric for a problem I was having with non-working pendant lights. Joe promptly called back to schedule an appointment. He arrived on time, was straight forward with the pricing and was able to diagnose and fix my problem in a relatively short time. While he was at my home he also was able to hang a new chandelier. I would highly recommend Best Electric!
