GFCI Electrical Outlet Installation Service
We rely on electricity for just about everything that we do. It’s important that your home has plenty of functional electrical outlets so that your electrical appliances can have access to the power that allows them to function.
As important as electricity and outlets are to our everyday lives, however, electricity can absolutely be dangerous. GFCI outlets were created to protect people from getting shocked from outlets. If a GFCI outlet detects any imbalances, it will quickly turn itself off to make sure that no harm is caused to anybody near the outlet.
To protect your family from any potential shocks, contact Mister Sparky of the Bay Area for GFCI outlet installation services.
What is a GFCI Outlet?
An electrical outlet is a device that allows your electrical equipment to connect to a power source. However, because there are many more electrical outlet options than many might think, it’s important to know which one is right for each specific area of your home.
GFCI (Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlets have the goal of protecting people from electrical shocks that they otherwise might experience from their home’s outlet. Whenever an imbalance is detected within the outlet, it will quickly turn itself off to ensure that nobody is harmed from a surge of electricity.
GFCI outlets are most commonly found in areas where water might be present, such as near sinks and in bathrooms and kitchens. You’ll be able to identify if your current outlets are GFCI outlets by the presence of the “reset” and “test” buttons resting between the openings on the outlet.
Benefits of Installing a GFCI Outlet
Many homes install GFCI outlets in their home with the goal of limiting and altogether preventing electrical shocks from the system. As soon as the outlet identifies any electrical interference, it will direct the electricity into the ground, rather than out of the outlet.
When your GFCI outlet detects an issue and redirects electricity to the ground, the “reset” button on the outlet will pop out, alerting you that an imbalance was detected. In order to use the outlet again, simply press the “reset” button and it will resume directing electricity to the outlet.
The older your home is, the older your home’s wiring likely is. If a surge occurs in damaged wiring with standard electrical outlets, it could very well lead to an electrical fire. With a GFCI outlet, however, any surge will immediately be detected and redirected towards the ground.
Protect Electrical Devices
Electricity leaks can be very dangerous, both to people and electrical appliances. A leak from your electrical outlets can seriously damage any devices connected to the outlet.
With a GFCI outlet, an electricity leak will be discovered right away, ensuring that the leak doesn’t lead to any irreversible damage.
