  • A ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) is a type of outlet that is designed to cut power to the outlet when it senses an abnormal flow of electricity. That's important because it prevents electrical wiring from overheating and starting on fire behind your wall and interrupts ground faults that could cause severe electrical shock injuries to a person who tries to interact with a faulty outlet. A GFCI looks like a typical electrical outlet, but it has three-prong openings to accommodate a grounding plug, and there are two buttons in the center that are labeled "TEST" and "RESET." GFCI outlet wiring in Colorado Springs is simply the process of having your local electrician install and wire GFCI outlets in your residential or commercial property.

  • Colorado Springs homes that were built within the last 50 years should all have GFCI outlet installations, but it’s important to understand why they’re placed in specific areas. And as we all know, water is a fantastic conductor of electricity. That means the risk of injury from a ground fault is far greater in areas that feature a water source, such as your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, basement, garage, and the spaces where your water heater tank and sump pump are housed. The Colorado Springs Fire Department recommends GFCI outlet wiring by a qualified electrician in all the areas of a house listed below and also notes that all outdoor receptacles should be protected by a GFCI.

  • When it comes to new construction, the National Electric Code (NEC) mandates that all 125-volt, 15-, and 20-amp plug receptacles that are at risk of coming into contact with water need to be GFCI protected. That includes the following areas:

    • Exterior/outdoors
    • At kitchen countertops
    • Bathrooms
    • Unfinished basements
    • Laundry rooms
    • Utility rooms
    • Near water heaters
    • Boathouses
    • Crawl spaces
    • Garages
    • Near wet-bar sinks
    • Unfinished accessory buildings

  • With the expert team at Mr. Electric on the job, you can rest assured that our services for GFCI outlet wiring in Colorado Springs are tailored to your safety and specific needs.
