GFCI vs. AFCI Outlets
GFCI and AFCI outlets are two distinct types of outlets which have been constructed for specific purposes.
Each one is designed to help prevent very specific electrical problems and must be installed in the right places:
- GFCI outlets are designed to monitor the electrical current. If something is wrong, the GFCI outlet is supposed to detect it and turn off the flow of electricity, such as in the bathroom where water could get near an outlet.
- AFCI outlets are designed to detect warning signs of heat and shut themselves off to prevent short circuits or fire risk.

There are many benefits of dimmer switches, including:
- Saves electricity because dim lights use less energy
