Licenced Residential, Commercial and Industrial Electrical Contractor Serving All of Clarington, Durham Region and the GTA • 905-448-2890


As a customer, GFCI Outlets are constantly pushed onto us. The primary point of having GFCI’s throughout your home or business is to prevent you from being electrocuted. One major flaw in a GFCI however, is that it does not prevent damage to wiring; it primarily helps to protect you.

While your safety and protection is necessary, the integrity of wiring in your home or business is also a priority. AFCIs, otherwise known as Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter, offer protection to not only you, but to the electrical wiring as well. AFCIs are designed to detect an irregular electrical arc, and shut off power before an electrical fire starts, saving lives and saving your electrical system used in conjunction with GFCI’s, you can safeguard your home or business against many major problems. In fact, most current electrical codes require AFCI’s to be installed when old breakers are replaced.

A consultation with Controlled Electric will help to see if AFCIs are already installed in your home or office. AFCIs are not difficult to install, but improper installation leads to ineffectiveness, so it is definitely in your best interest to have these professionally installed. When it comes to protecting yourself against electrical malfunctions, you can never be too safe!

If you’re looking for electrical assistance with AFCIs in Clarington, Durham Region and the Greater Toronto Area, please contact Controlled Electric at 905-448-2890 or use our online form to a request a service appointment.
