I am waiting for a new house to be finished within the month. I have a bunch of circuits in the house that have an AFCI circuit breakers. I have plenty of experience with GFCIs, but was wondering if the Klien AFCI/GFCI tester was worth the purchase for a homeowner with new wiring? If so, how often, should I test these circuits? Monthly, yearly or some other interval?
This is the least expensive device for testing AFCI that I have come across, with others that test the AFCI also test for a lot more conditions in the circuit, with a price of at least $200. I don’t think I’ll be using something like that to be worth the investment.
Don’t mind spending the $40 (or less thanks to Stuart’s secret code) on something like this. I can pass along the two GFCI outlet testers that I have to my nephews.
