New Product to Increase Residential Billing
Residential contractors can show a new product and obtain more billing. The customer could have you there for adding an outlet or other request. If you show the customer a need-to-have-product, you can install it on the same house call. That can keep the cost for the customer reasonable, and provides good profit. Customers are generally interested in high-tech controls for their house, but they don’t want high costs and difficult learning. They also want it to solve a problem to justify the expense. An example is in the new Leviton Humidity Sensor and Fan Control.

NEC Recognizes AFCI Outlet Option
With the introduction of arc-fault circuit-interrupting (AFCI) receptacles, electrical contractors and their customers now have an alternative to breaker-based solutions for providing protection against possible arc-fault-related fires and injuries. Now the National Electrical Code (NEC) is beginning to incorporate these devices as alternatives to AFCI breakers in both new construction and replacement projects.

Breakthrough in AFCI Circuit Protection
The code mandated AFCI protection is expensive. A typical load panel AFCI circuit breaker is about forty dollars. Older panels, when doing modification work, might have to be replaced to properly seat the AFCI breakers. So when the customer wants a receptacle added, the price could kill any interest and his trust in the electrical contractor. New developments can help with this problem. Leviton has developed and introduced an Outlet Branch Circuit (OBC) AFCI receptacle.
