GFCI Outlet Installation in Las Vegas, NV

Times & Places to Install GFCI Outlets

Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets were invented in 1965 and have prevented electrocution for countless people. You can easily spot GFCI outlets with the “Test” and “Reset” buttons on their receptacles. Hopefully, these outlets have already been installed in your bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room. Rooms that are frequently wet require GFCI outlets because they’re essential safety devices that the National Electrical Code even requires in most cases. If your home doesn’t have GFCI outlets in the right spaces in Las Vegas or Summerlin, NV, let the team at Mr. Electric of Summerlin provide the GFCI outlet installation services you need to stay safe and compliant.

  • If you’ve never operated a GFCI outlet or don’t know how your current one works, you may experience a lot of confusion. A GFCI outlet may trip without you knowing about it, so you might assume it’s broken if you’re unaware of how to reset it. Furthermore, you need to learn how to test your GFCI outlets to verify they provide the proper level of protection at all times. If your GFCI outlet doesn’t supply power to a device, you should start by pressing its reset button. If this button doesn’t restore power to your device, your next action is to test your GFCI outlet. If your outlet turns out to be broken, Mr. Electric of Summerlin offers GFCI outlet installation services to restore safe and reliable power. Test your GFCI outlet by performing the following steps:

    1. Cut off electricity flow to your outlet by pushing the “Test” button to trip the breaker.
    2. Plug in a night light or another small electronic device. This device shouldn’t receive power or light up at this point.
    3. Press the “Reset” button to return power to the GFCI outlet. Doing so should make your electronic device power on or light up.

Does the National Electrical Code Require GFCI Outlets?

Since GFCI outlets were first introduced in the electrical industry, they have proven their enhanced safety so well that the National Electrical Code (NEC) has broadened the scope of their use in residential and commercial structures. Initially, the NEC only required GFCI outlets around spas and swimming pools. Today, the electrical code mandates using them in nearly every room with regular moisture or wetness. We’ve provided the following list indicating every room the 2020 Electrical Code stipulates should have GFCI outlets. If you don’t have GFCI outlets in any of these rooms, Mr. Electric of Summerlin will gladly install them to ensure you’re up to code. GFCI outlets are required in the following spaces:

  • Around spas and pools since 1971
  • On exterior outlets since 1973
  • In bathrooms since 1975
  • In garages since 1987
  • On kitchen countertops since 1987
  • In unfinished basements and crawlspaces since 1990
  • In wet bars since 1993
  • In utility and laundry rooms since 2005

    Highly recommended! Installed my Tesla Charger and it was a difficult project with my breaker box in the basement but it was no issue at all.
