WHAT IS A GFCI?
Ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCI’s) provide the best available protection against severe shock and electrocution. A GFCI device will remove energy in a circuit when it senses a difference in the amount of electricity passing through the device and returning through the device, or a “leak” of current from the circuit.
HOW CAN IT BE USED IN MY HOME?
GFCI’s protect against accidental electric shock or electrocution by acting immediately to shut off the circuit if they sense a ground fault, or “leak” of current off the circuit. GFCI’s have been in homes since the early 70s on the circuits that come within six feet of water. Homeowners, however, should consider having GFCI protection on general purpose receptacles through the home.
Q: I DON'T CURRENTLY HAVE GFCI'S IN MY HOME, WHY DO I NEED THEM NOW?
A: Safety – GFCI’s provide much more safety from shock and electrocution than a regular outlet. Nowadays, a home inspector will require that GFCI outlets be installed before the home is sold or bought.
If you have any questions regarding GFCI’s or outlets, or need them installed, call Milestone! We would love to answer all of your questions!
