What are arc fault circuit interrupters, or AFCI?

 

AFCI's are devices that replace standard circuit breakers in your home's electrical service panel. AFCI's offer greater electrical fire protection than traditional breakers because they are equipped with advanced internal electronics that detect hazardous arcing conditions and shut down the electricity before a fire can start.

 

what's the difference between and AFCI and a GFCI?

 

The AFCI protects against fires caused by arcing faults while the GFCI is designed to protect people from severe or fatal electric shocks.
