What is an AFCI?

AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interruptor) circuit breakers detect minor arcing in an electrical circuit due to a fault condition and preventing fires. A common example of this would be a nail driven into a wall to hang a mirror that comes in very close proximity to a home wiring system. The nail may not cause the breaker to trip, but, under conditions of high humidity the electrical charge may arc (think tiny lightning). The level of electrical current flowing isn’t enough to trip a conventional breaker, however, it could heat up and cause a fire. A poor connection in the wiring system could cause the same thing.

What Our Clients Are Saying

After a bad storm, we had electrical problems. We called Wheat Electric to come out. Nick and Troy were the electricians.
They determined the problem and fixed it in a timely manner. They arrived on time and were very friendly, very professional, and did an excellent job. Thank you Troy and Nick.

Troy and Nick were very helpful in figuring out how to install a floor outlet on a tight space in our pier and beam home. The addition of our under cabinet lighting came out great. Overall they were very knowledgeable and made sure we were satisfied with their work.

We had to call for a worn out dryer receptacle repair. Journeyman Troy came with his apprentice Nick. They throughly did the inspection for damage, completed the repair and post-safety inspection. Good communication, good quality workmanship, attention to details, and fair pricing. We would call upon Wheat Electric again.
