Ground fault circuit interrupters are very simple devices. These surge protectors actually closely monitor the current levels that are passing through them and when they sense an imbalance of any kind (be it lower power or power surge) they interrupt the circuit. This circuit interruption stops the flow of current before it can reach the device or circuitry on the other side of the GCFI. Often the GCFI is an outlet, typically installed in bathrooms where electrical devices are hand held. The GFCI protects from electrocution as you are using blow driers, curling irons and that sort. There are GFCI circuit breakers as well that can be installed directly into your breaker box.
Arc fault circuit interrupters operate a little differently than GFCI’s. AFCI’s detect leaks in wiring and interrupt the circuit to prevent electrical fires. As wires get worn, electricity may leak out of cracks and tears in the wire insulation. This is a quick way for fires to spread amongst the dry sea of electrical wiring behind your walls. The AFCI will detect the leakage and stop the current flow quickly to ensure further leakage is halted. These are typically installed in the breaker box as well.
An easy way that homeowners can take surge protection into their own hands is with the popular and commonly used power strip. By plugging your consumer electronic devices into a power strip, power to the entire strip is cut off if there is a surge in power. This provides your home with another layer of defense on the external side of your electrical system.
