GFCI & AFCI
GFCI & AFCI in Central New Jersey
Our comprehensive Central New Jersey electrical services include Ground Fault
Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) and Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) installations and Whole-home protection plans.
According to the National Electric Code (NEC), GFCIs are key to residential electrical safety, and should be located in bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms, and any place where water or moisture is present. AFCIs protect against electrical fires and are recommended to be installed into your panel for Whole-home protection.
You can install GFCIs and AFCIs into the point-of-use outlets or choose to have them installed directly into the circuit breaker for the most complete protection from grounding and electrical arcing situations. We highly recommend the installation of Whole-home GFCI and AFCI protection.
Contact Superpower Electric for more information on GFCI and AFCI protection, as well as our Free 33 Point Home Safety Check. Electrical inspections and Whole-home GFCI and AFCI installation are your greatest defenses against potential electrical dangers.

Safety – The addition of GFCIs offers not just peace of mind but the most protection available against home electrical fires. They provide much more safety against power surges and electrical fires than regular outlets can.
Technology – Our modern world affords us access to incredible technological advancements. The more electronics and appliances we add to our homes, the more we need our electrical system to keep up. The addition of GFCIs doesn’t just protect your home against the risk of electrical fires, it also updates your home, allowing it to support the ever-growing dependence on electronic devices in our daily lives.
