Ground fault circuit interrupters are very are surge protection devices that closely monitor the current levels that pass through them and interrupt the circuit if an imbalance of even the smallest kind is detected. The current is then stopped and never reaches the device on the other side of the GFCI, protecting people and property from being shocked or electrocuted by a power surge. GFCI outlets are commonly installed in bathrooms where appliances that are plugged into the wall are consistently used in hand. GFCI circuit breakers that are installed in the breaker box are another line of defense against current imbalance and power surges.
Arc fault circuit interrupters operate are different than GFCI’s in that they detect leaks in wiring and interrupt the circuit to prevent electrical fires. When wires age, they may leak electric current through cracks in their insulation. This leakage can easily catch the flammable wires in that dry environment ablaze, causing a full fledged electrical fire. The AFCI circuit breaker detects this leak and shuts the current down immediately before damage can occur.
