Changes in the 2014 National Electric Code (NEC) aim to further protect homes from electrical fires through the use of Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) protection as well as the introduction of Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) protection requirements. These requirements when adopted are for specific electrical circuits in residential homes.
GFCI and AFCI protection can be accomplished a host of ways. The most common method is the installation of wall or floor outlets with specific protective circuitry built in, a new and more comprehensive option is GFCI and/or AFCI protected circuit breakers that afford protection for all outlets on that circuit.
Many city and county authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ) still use 2012 or older codes, therefore the supplementary electrical safety precautions for comprehensive GFCI and AFCI protection is not yet required. However, HPG recommends the use of dual operating GFCI/AFCI breakers with a factory compatible electrical panel for circuits requiring comprehensive protection.
