ARC Electric Company recently partnered with CurrentSAFE to bring a new type of home electrical testing to our area. CurrentSAFE is the most comprehensive diagnosis of your homes electrical system on the market today! ARC Electric recently sent several staff members to Pittsburgh, PA to become CurrentSAFE certified. Our staff completed a weeks worth of training and were led by CurrentSAFE management and the Founder, Kevin Dickey! ARC Electric Company’s staff has in classroom knowledge and on-site experience with CurrentSAFE, its programming and electrical fire safety. Who better to learn from than the professionals who helped start this program many years ago. Before opening up and offering to the Charlotte and surrounding cities our staff used several real homes to perform an EHD test. While performing these test all staff members received additional hands on training with the Electrical Hazard Dectection software and equipment.
Many have asked us why? Our simple and honest answer can only be, to give our homeowners a peace of mind!
In 2011, according to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), home electrical fires in North America claimed the lives of 455 people and injured atleast 1,518 others. Some of these fires were caused by electrical system failures, but many more are caused by incorrectly installed wiring, overloaded circuits and extension cords. During 2011, these home electrical problems accounted for over 47,820 fires and almost $1.5 billion in property losses.*
