Electrical Outlet Installation and Safety
Properly installed Electrical Outlets Can Keep You and Your Home Safe
GFCI OutletsGFCI, or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter Outlets are usually found in Kitchens and Bathrooms where they can protect your home’s electrical system from surges caused by wet conditions. Each GFCI outlet contains a reset and test button. At the moment a GFCI outlet detects a spike in current or potential overload, it trips itself cutting off the current. You should test your GFCI outlets at least once a month by pressing the test button. If the power does not turn off, you may need a replacement.
Every parent knows the danger of an open outlet. While there are options available such as plug covers, the best way to keep your kids safe is through the installation of tamper-proof outlets. They’re affordable and can easily be installed by a licensed electrician.
