GFCI Outlets in Weston, Fort Lauderdale, Plantation, and the Surrounding Areas
GFCI outlets, or GFI outlets, protect users from receiving electric shocks from improper currents or electrical device faults. To go into detail, GFCI outlets compare input current to the output current. If there is any difference, no matter how slight, could mean current is leaking and possibly through someone’s body. Amazingly, once a difference is discovered, GFCI outlets cut off power supplies within 20-30 milliseconds, keeping your family, employees, guests, and customers safe.
GFCI Installation Requirements
GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlets are becoming more popular as homes and businesses are looking for ways to increase safety. GFCI outlets are required in some locations throughout your home or business including all places that are near a water source or subject to moisture. Some areas that must have GFCI outlet installation include:
- Bathrooms, kitchens, wet bars, and laundries
- Utility rooms and closets
- Garages and accessory buildings
- Exterior receptacles
- Crawl spaces and unfinished basements
If you do not have GFCI outlets installed in these locations, call us to inspect your commercial building or residence. Some older buildings may not have built when GFCI outlets were required. Think of it this way, in some areas, only outlets located near a pool were required to be GFCI. And, your house or business may have a history of improper electrical work by previous owners. Whatever the reason, outlets that are not GFCI should be replaced immediately.
