Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters: What They Are
You probably are wondering to yourself, “What is a ground fault circuit interrupter?”.
Ground fault circuit interrupters, also known as GFCIs, are what protect people from electrical shocks and prevent electrical accidents from taking place.
What does a ground fault circuit interrupter do? They quickly cut off power if it senses a shock is being sent to the person.
You can learn about how exactly GFCIs work to prevent electrical shocks. The more knowledge you have on these circuits, the better you will protect yourself and your loved ones.
Installation of GFCI Outlets
Typically, installing ground fault circuit interrupter outlets takes place in rooms where water is in use. If water comes in contact with an outlet, an electrical shock can occur.
Most common rooms with GFCI outlets:
- Laundry Rooms
- Garages and Outdoor Areas
These outlets last a very long time, but unfortunately will at some point need to be replaced.
Dealing with these outlets can be dangerous with no experience or knowledge in electrical work. Having a professional show you where GFCIs are most recommended throughout your home and install or replace them is the safest option.
