GFCI Outlet FAQs
A GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlet is designed to protect people from electrical shock in areas where water and electricity may come into contact.
How does a GFCI Outlet Work?
A GFCI outlet constantly monitors the electrical current flowing through it. If it senses that the current is not balanced, which means that some of the current is flowing through an unintended path (such as through a person), it immediately shuts off the power to the outlet.
Where should GFCI outlets be installed?
GFCI outlets should be installed in areas where there is a higher risk of electrical shock, such as near water sources like bathrooms, kitchens, and outdoor areas.
Can I install a GFCI outlet myself?
While it is possible to install a GFCI outlet yourself, it is highly recommended to have a licensed electrician do the installation to ensure it is done correctly and safely.
