AFCI Breaker Testing Explained!

AFCI, or arc-fault-circuit-interruptor breakers are common in newer construction homes. Manufacturers recommend testing breakers on a monthly basis. How to test these breakers is advised in this video taken at a recent home inspection in Anacortes on Fidalgo Island. If the breakers don’t “trip” when tested, replacement by an electrician is advised.
