  • According to today’s building codes, GFCI outlets must be in areas posing the highest electrical shock risk, such as garages, kitchens, and bathrooms. You can spot GFCI outlets with their “Test” and “Reset” buttons on the receptacles. Mr. Electric of St. Paul recommends staying up to code and enhancing your home’s electrical safety by installing GFCI outlets. These outlets effectively prevent shocks, fires, and other damage and injuries. Our electricians use these outlets to protect you and your electronic devices against electrical hazards by monitoring the amount of electricity flowing in your circuit. The GFCI immediately cuts power in an outlet the moment it detects an electricity flow imbalance. With our technicians’ skills and expertise, we quickly and safely install GFCI outlets to provide adequate protection against harm and damage.

  • After Mr. Electric of St. Paul finishes your electrical outlet installation, it’s fairly simple to use your new outlets. If your installation involves GFCI outlets, you won’t notice many differences between operating this outlet type and any standard outlet. All you need to do is press the "Reset" button whenever your GFCI outlet cuts power flow under normal operating conditions. These outlets are substantially more reliable than leaving the job up to your electrical panel’s circuit breaker to shut down the current flow when an imbalance happens. GFCI outlets are more sensitive to these small current variations than your circuit breakers. Furthermore, manufacturers design GFCI outlets to sever power flow before getting shocked by an outlet will affect your heartbeat. We gladly protect your well-being with this critical safety function, and testing all your home’s GFCI outlets monthly is essential.
