Our home was built in 2008. We are being told by a home inspector that we need to upgrade to Arc Fault Circuit Interupters throughout the whole house in order to meet new code. Is this true?

The 2006 International Residential Code is the code in effect when your home was constructed. Section E3802.12 requires arc-fault circuit interrupters on bedroom receptacles only. You are not required to upgrade to newer code requirements.
