What Is a GFCI Outlet?
A GFCI outlet shuts off the flow of electricity to the outlet and any appliances plugged into it if it senses a sudden change in electrical current. This reduces the risk of electrocution and electric shocks. The electrical currents in your home run through insulated wires to switches and outlets. A ground fault occurs when electricity moves off its pathway through insulated wires and enters the ground. This happens if a cord is damaged, or the home has faulty wiring. This can cause electrocution or electrical shock. The risk of injury or death is greater in areas of your home that use water, such as kitchens and bathrooms. GFCI outlets contain sensors that monitor the flow of electrical current and sense ground faults or sudden changes in electrical current. The outlet shuts off the flow of electricity to prevent a prolonged surge that could lead to electrocution or death. Our team of experienced home service professionals can perform GFCI outlet installation in all necessary areas of your home.
Why You Need GFCI Outlet Installation
All homeowners should invest in professional GFCI outlet installation to protect themselves and their families from injury. If the outlet senses an overload or power surge, it will turn off, reducing your risk of injury, electric shock, electrocution, or death. To turn the outlet back on, you must do a GFCI outlet reset by pressing the red button on the outlet. The National Electric Code requires that GFCI outlets be installed in any room or area of the home that is near water. This includes:
- Exterior & bathroom receptacles or outlets
- Outlets serving kitchen countertops
- Laundry rooms and utility rooms
- Wet bars
- Unfinished basements
- Any outlet within six feet of a sink, washing machine, water heater, or other water source
