Did this video help you?

Brandon Harris: what needs to be on a gfi and what needs to be on a arc fault in a house

swav100: Those damn things are freaking expensive!!!!!

Thom Ketring: Very helpful!

SEMPER PROGRATIS: I AM A NEWB. EASY TO UNDERSTAND!

Jack Canapé: As of 17March at 2am... no sound, on either Mac OSX Safari 10.0.3 browser, or the OSX compatible Firefox 52.0 browser. Is something corrupted in this video file? ...or is my computer hosed? OMG... it might be... my MacBookAir is SIX years old, but still seems OK... or not?

TSIRHC SEVAS: great video,

i'm trying to figure out what kind of dc breaker do i need. i have a I have ordered a panel with these specifications:

Reference Number HG260W
Maximum power Pmax (W) 250
Tension in Pmax Vmp (V) 30.43

Open Circuit Voltage Voc 37.12
Short circuit current Isc (A) 9,65
Current in Pmax Imp (A) 8,54
Polycrystalline cells

i dont want to spend a lot for a disconnect box. will a 25 amp circuit breaker do? if yes, do i need a single pole one>? and third do i plug only the positive?

sorry too many questions.

DrugFoods: Great video. I'm curious what you used as a graphic at 5 1/2 minutes in to remind people to use the same amperage breaker. It looks really nice.

temesghen efrem: I thank you for taking time to read my comment need your just replaced 15 amps arc fault breaker for one of my bed room and still not work what possibly wrong with it

Tr3y x__7r3da2__: This made it so much easier, thank you!

Ruben Matos: Thanks a lot for the video,im about to start school and all yours videos are helping me a lot.

Irvine Spiegel: I hate arc fault breakers. They're an incomplete technology. Everything arcs. You turn on a light, there is an arc. you plug something in while its on, there is an arc and if its off and something else is drawing from the circuit, theres an arc. you plug something into a power strip, there is an arc. arcs happen all the time. Persisting arcs are what cause fires. Jboxes, even the plastic or ceramic residential jboxs are designed to starve fires of oxygen, making these circumstances extremely rare. on top of that you have smoke alarms to alert residences of the rare case of an electrical fire. But afci will go off for damn near any reason after a few years, even devices already plugged in that suddenly pull a greater load, like AC's or hair dryers can cause them to trip. It is a promising technology, it is something that should be made into a standard in the future, but currently it is in beta, and has no business being in code.

The mechanisms that make arc fault breakers trip deteriorate over time from false triggers like turning on switches, or pluging in a vacum cleaner in the on position. after as little as 2 years, these things will fail do resist false triggers, and trigger on damn near anything, requiring them to be replaced at up to $80 each.

Dave U: Thanks a lot for the video. I just installed an AFCI and it couldn't have been more simple.

RadioRoswellTV: Very easy to understand. Had to put 5 of these in. Thanks for the video.

George McDonald: Thanks - very nice and simple instructions.
