Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI)

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI for short) are specific types of outlets that protect against hazards. GFCI outlets are an important part of today’s building code standards to reduce risks and are relatively inexpensive to purchase and install. We can quickly install and replace your GFCI outlets so your family can be safer.

What Is a GFCI Outlet?

You are required to have GFCI outlets in the areas of your house which have the highest risk of electrical shock like bathrooms, kitchens, and garages. You will see the “reset” and “test” buttons on the face of a GFCI outlet as an identifier. By “checking” how much current is flowing through that circuit, these outlets can keep you safe from electrical danger. The GFCI immediately shuts off power to the outlet when it receives a large imbalance of current in the circuit.

How to Operate a GFCI Outlet

When the GFCI outlet cuts electricity off in a normal situation, simply hit the “reset” button to return power. GFCI outlets are very sensitive when compared to the circuit breakers on your main panel, and so are dependable to detect much smaller changes in your electricity. They are specifically designed to stop electricity from flowing quickly enough to prevent an electric shock from affecting your heartbeat. This crucial safety feature means you should be testing every GFCI outlet in your home on a monthly basis.

How to Test GFCI Outlet Performance

  • ​First, press in the “test” button to shut power off to the outlet
  • Plug a small appliance or device that requires very little electricity to verify that the outlet is completely without power
  • Finally, press in the “reset” button to return power to the unit
